Here are the Cliff notes:
I grew up in Arcadia, California.
I’ve been singing, playing and writing music since I was about five.
I’ve been performing pretty regularly since I was 12.
I studied music in college for 2 years before deciding I would learn more if I just got in a band and went on the road.
So I quit college and moved to a ski resort to ski for a few years and did nothing in music.
No, it didn’t make sense to me either but it gave me plenty of songwriting material.
Then I came back to LA.
Then I studied music for 2 more years.
Then I went and played in a rock band in Alaska for 3 years.
Then came back to LA.
Then I got a gig singing with the Summer Wind Trio. With them I got to experience the LA club scene and many 5 star hotels and restaurants … from the kitchen entrance.
A while back I went in the studio and finally recorded an LP of songs I’d written over the years and released it last year.
Currently I perform around the LA area in different bands as well as, of course, playing my own music.
A girl has to make a living!
I continue to write and the new songs are piling up so it will be time to get back in the studio soon.
I’ll let you know.
