Choosing to celebrate my recent accomplishments in music by sharing my music, feels as natural and as necessary as breathing. All of the winding tendrils of my life have been leading me down this path of creation and collaboration, performing and travelling. It has all been a life long dream come true. I am beyond thrilled to be moving from stage to festival to showroom to stage, all the while meeting new friends, musicians, and collaborators. Life is a gift!
My musical roots are in my operatic training so a highlight of the tour has definitely been performing with the Sooke Philharmonic, it transported me right back to those wonderful years of being completely immersed in classical music. My early training lead me to new music and improvisation, which lead me to composition, which lead me to delve into so many different forms. Languages fill me with passion, music fills me with joy, my relationships, in all forms, fill me with stories of life and love. All of this together has allowed me to find my own true voice and to bring my own unique sound to the stage. I am so utterly grateful for everything I offer and everything I gain.
All of my performances and offerings have been so nourishing this summer, each one teaching me something new. The range of musicians changes with every opportunity so I have played with piano only, with violin and accordion/mandolin, with a five piece band, and with a full orchestra! Unbelievable! It has been remarkable to settle into each space and into each setting. It all comes down to my guys! My band. My friends. Each an incredibly talented musician and I couldn't have pulled any of this together with out each and every one of them. So an enormous thank you to Richard Moody, Adrian Dolan, Sean Drabbit, Marc Atkinson, Dave Lieffertz, and David Emery.
With only 3 shows to go in my celebratory summer tour, I invite you all to share my story and my music with your friends and family.
