Voted "~Quirkiest~" in high school and now utterly sickened by the word "~Quirky,~" I have been described as ~Quirky~ more often than I have been likened to Diana Krall, which has been often. I was practically born humming tunes to myself. Inspired to pick up guitar at age 9 (and hell-bent on playing left-handedly) by female singer-songwriters and guitar slingers such as Sheryl Crow and KT Tunstall, I have expanded my horizons and come to adore and idolize the songs, voices and instrumental stylings of Lianne La Havas, Carole King and Joni Mitchell. Tin Pan Alley era songwriting is my bread and butter. Jazz is my part-time lover. Most of my songs are the fruit of a three-day bender of home-made espresso and indecision. I am a firm believer in love and mornings. I am a feminist. I am an introvert. The rest, you can find in my songs. It's all there. I hope you find some amount of truth and comfort in my words and music.
