My full length album "Mockingbird" is a long time coming. Generally performing under my project moniker PIPES, I decided to go by my birth name to take my music into a more personal space. This album, full of dark musings and contemplative desires, pulls from many of my influences such as Cassandra Wilson, Chris Cornell, John Lee Hooker, Alice in Chains, Morphine and A.K.A.C.O.D
When I was 10 years old I began playing the violin. When I was 17 my mother bought me my first guitar and I began to learn the songs of the bands I loved at the time, a few being Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains and Sound Garden. As I began to listen to other genres like blues and jazz my musical palette matured and I began to write my own songs. The first time I played in front of anyone was during a talent show my senior year of high school. When I had my first show at local cafe during my junior year of college I was hooked. I wanted people to hear my words.
Though I play mostly in the Chicagoland area I am looking to travel and perform in other cities. If you like what you hear and are interested in booking me for a show please checkout "Booking" for more information. I am a big fan of musical scores and soundtracks and it’s a live-long dream to have my music featured on one.
Thank you for listening and enjoy!
