I've loved music ever since I can remember. Growing up, my mom was definitely a huge musical influence on me. She sang and played guitar in an acoustic trio, and was also was our church accompanist for over 30 years.
I started taking piano lessons when I was 6. I got the singing bug at around age 14, when we had a portable recording studio in the form of a giant Jukebox that we would take to malls, the state fair and other youth and corporate events. Those were very fun times!
I was always singing whenever I had a chance. Karaoke, weddings, special events etc. Then in 2006, I auditioned for the lead singer in an up and coming country rock band. To my surprise, I was offered the spot as I was driving home from the audition. I learned a lot about performing during that time and really started to grow as a musician. Some highlights during that time were opening for LoCash at The Pioneer Place in WI, and also for BlackHawk at the Medina Ballroom.
Fast Forward to today....I'm very blessed to be performing with talented friends in a few different projects. From acoustic duos, to a rockin' Queen tribute band, to a show celebrating the amazing Women of Country!
Ive also been doing some songwriting over the past year and have a couple of singles out on the radio! What a dream come true.
