I have a pure, clear, 3 octave range. First place winner, Spring 2023, World Songwriting Awards. World Songwriting Awards top ten Spring and Fall 2022. "Letter of Accomplishment" from the Billboard Song Contest. Composed and produced 3 CDs of original music and I am currently pitching for sync to TV and Film.
I have a gentle, yet powerful voice. I can do 3 part harmony with myself or others. I write primarily folk based, nature centered, introspective music, with a Celtic twist, I enjoy stretching myself and singing other's songs. When I perform I do a mix of folk, easy listening, country, adult contemporary and my originals. I am self taught and play the Autoharp. I learn quickly and enjoy the rapport of musicians.

Interview with Einen, Oregon Born Music
Q: Analog or digital and why?

A: I've been writing music since I was 5 years old. I performed as a soloist since grade school, participated in school musicals and choirs in high school.
