Fierce but no one knows it yet, so get in early so we can make something absolutely fantastic together! Remember, collabs get 1+1 to equal 4.
I'm 20 years old but have been writing since I was 9. I've "studied" the ways of Gaga, David Bowie, Prince, Frank Ocean, and others - influenced in all aspects by pop legends. I am well versed in current pop culture and trends, while also having an extensive background (being a huge fan) of musicians from the 70's and 80's.
Listeners of my music will feel emotion first and foremost. I do not write just based on personal experiences; good songwriters and producers have the gift of shape shifting and story-telling.
Songwriting is my top service (lyrics and/or melodies), but I am also a trained singer, growing up in a choir setting. I can replicate stylistically any female singer you desire, just let me know what you are looking for!
I am currently a Music Industry student at Drexel University. I currently work with The Recording Academy, working personally with and learning from Grammy nominated and award winning musicians. I am a booking agent for indie rock and pop bands in Philly, allowing me to see first hand the new music and bands coming out of the scene. I have been trained as a FOH and monitor live sound engineer, and would love to help with any live productions if you are hiring. Also, I tour manage! I would consider songwriting, singing, and tour managing my main gigs. Please feel free to contact me to discuss working together!
