Soul-Folk Sonic Storyteller conjuring magik from deep New Orleans roots | | Vocalist, Flutist, Songwriter, Lyricist, Multi-Instrumentalist, Composer | | Latest Album Credit: "Bed of Roses" (2019) by Kathryn Rose Wood (flute, bgvs) | | Winner of Delgado Songwriting Contest 2018

My primary offerings include:
*Session Flute and Vocal Work
*Songwriting (Music & Lyrics)
*Vocal & Instrumental Production

Style(s): R&B/Soul, Gospel, NeoSoul, Folk/Acoustic, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Pop

Background: Vocally, I grew up singing in the Black Church and studied jazz voice as well. As a flutist, I am trained in both classical and jazz styles. I play "beatbox flute" and enjoy arranging freedom songs and pop tunes for accapella rhythm flute/voice. I've played with different types of artists/bands over the years (rock-soul, funk, reggae, etc). Occasionally, I've performed with concert music ensembles and pit orchestras for live musicals. To date, I have collaborated most often on R&B/Soul, Hip-Hop/Spoken Word, and Pop recording projects. My songwriting features earnest lyricism, compelling vocal melodies, and soulful, smart, highly inventive soundscapes. As a composer, I typically score for mixed media pieces, dance/movement, and theatre productions. I also play piano, acoustic guitar, and some auxiliary percussion.

Beyond the stage&studio, I'm a music therapist. In 2018, I started S O U L F O L K Sounds, a community music production and sound healing practice centering LGBTQ+ and youth of color. I believe that music is a powerful healing tool and that it can truly change the world.
