~Behind the music...
I am a self taught artist & musician from Fort Lauderdale Florida where I am a full time artist for a living. When I am not painting, I love to play guitar and write songs. I started playing guitar when I was very young but unfortunately my Mom didn't think little girls should play guitar so my big brother was the one to get the lessons. Thanks to my Pop he would steal my brother’s guitar every time my Mom wasn't looking and let me JAM..:-)
My musical genres range from rock, singer songwriter, indie rock, alternative, pop rock, punk, acoustic and beyond…
More than anything, I simply consider myself a songwriter. I love to play the guitar and sing but I also play a bit of bass, drums and keyboard.
All of my songs to date come from a very honest place based on personal experiences and I have to admit it’s scary to reveal yourself and spill your guts! There is a song by Anna Nalick titled “Breathe” a line in the song says ( Now I feel like I’m naked in front of this crowd and these word are my diary screaming out loud and I know that you'll use them how ever you want to). When I heard that I said that is the perfect lyric for every type of artist to relate to.
After working in a wildlife rescue center for seven years, I am still to this day extremely active in the conservation of our wildlife.
Although I am addicted to buying guitars some of my favorites are my PRS an old Fender Strat Plus for my recordings.
For acoustic recordings I use an Ovation, Alhambra, Martin and a fat body Takamine twelve string.
Bass guitars: I use a Rickenbacker 4003 & Fender Jazz
Amps: Fender combo and also a Mesa dual rectifier with a Marshall 4/12 cabinet with greenbacks & Vox.
Recordings: Are done in my personal studio using- Reaper with a mass amount of plugins including Reason, Waves, Absynth, SoundToys, Sonnox and Lexicon then mastered in Sony Sound Forge.
Percussions: I use a wide variety for drum sounds - keyboards, drum machines and plugins like Reason and EZdrummer.
Videos: created with - Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and Adobe After Effects CS6.
