For as long as I can remember, I have been in love with music. I was raised in a small town in central Pennsylvania and, thanks to my parents' love of music, I was exposed to all different styles while growing up. As a result, I've been influenced and inspired by everyone from Mozart to Madonna - and everyone in between. I grew up listening to: the Beatles, the Fifth Dimension, the Carpenters, Billy Joel, Elton John, the Who, the Temptations, Diana Ross, Stevie Wonder, Peter Allen, James Taylor, Carole King, Paul McCartney, and many more...the list is endless. Currently, my influences are: Alanis Morissette, Sara Bareilles, John Mayer, the Dave Matthews Band, the Beatles (still), Melissa Etheridge, and more...again, the list is endless. Throughout my childhood, I sang in church choirs and participated in as many talent shows and competitions as I could. While in high school, I sang the National Anthem at sporting events and sang in various choral groups and small a capella ensembles. In college, I majored in music and, a little less than a year after graduation, I moved to Orlando, FL. Since moving here, I've written and recorded two CDs, 'Let the Girl Sing' and 'Leap of Faith.' I work with an amazing producer - Frank Starchak - at the Deltona Arts and Historical Center in Deltona, FL. I also perform in local festivals, fundraisers, clubs, etc throughout the central Florida area as well as other places around the country. In addition to live performances, I also sing on other musician's and artist's recording projects. In addition to writing and recording my own music, I am also a member of the singing group, Sing Live USA. With them, I have performed at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center, the Linda Chapin Theater and in the Candlelight Processional at Epcot in Walt Disney World. In 2008, I traveled to England with Sing Live USA to perform in the Sing Live 10th Anniversary concert at Leeds Town Hall. And finally, last but certainly not least, I have just recently begun to work with the amazing Edwin Coppard of Real People Music. In 2009, he will be helping me to record some of my new songs and I will be attending several of his life-changing workshops.
