Pop-Country, Singer Songwriter with a Disney voice infusion. Over 10 years of professional singing experience. Classically Trained singer & pianist. I've often been referred to as a young Dolly Parton, Amy Grant and Jodi Benson. As a session singer I sing for country, pop, classical, musical theatre, jazz and folk music.
I have been singing professionally for over 10 years, performing in front of thousands of people for sporting events, productions, weddings, funerals and special events. I am extremely versatile and experienced as a singer. My voice is very adaptable and can easily blend with other voices. I know how to find harmonies by ear or by sight reading. If you have lead sheets I can read music easily as I’m a classically trained piano player. Otherwise, I have a very good ear and can harmonize easily.
I am professional, while at the same time lighthearted and easy to talk to. I know how to get the job done in a timely manner. I am humble and can take criticism and direction without getting offended.
I write quality songs and provide quality demo vocals very quickly. All of my vocal services include my own mix. Wet/dry stems are sent upon last payment. I can record and provide vocal mixes, vocal tuning, arrangement and editing.
My services include the following:
1. Lead vocals in just about any genre, quickly and cleanly (with vocal production-mix +tuning )
2. Full backing vocals (with vocal production-mix+tuning)
3. Voice Overs
4. Songwriting: music, melody, lyrics
5. Cover song arrangement
