I'm gonna be honest: I never wanted to be an acoustic musician, but since I played piano, it made sense when I started. Now I need change. I want to make people DANCE. I want to create pop masterpieces with people all over the world, and I wanna perform that shit and make people sing along. BUT I NEED HELP.
I've been writing since 2005, and have thankfully come a long way in my songwriting abilities. In that past few years especially I've started writing music with the goal of it becoming a REAL song (not just me halfassing chords on a keyboard when really I just want to sing and dance like a fool). That stuff is desperately in need of more behind my loud mouth. Unfortunately, most of the new songs aren't recorded. (I'M WORKING ON IT.) 'Til then, I do have the vocals from my 2016 album Here's to My, and they are begging to be remixed and remade.
Sounds like: some bitchass loser in a coffee shop that keeps getting asked to turn her volume down bc she's actually meant to be performing in clubs and sweet venues not corners of places filled with people unprepared for her loud mouth and swear words
Wants to sound like: a powerhouse vocalist backed by talented musicians that makes people not only fall in love with life again but makes them dance, sing at the top of their lungs, and hum the songs the next day
Okay more realistically, genre goals: pop, dance, funk, rock, nostalgic vibes; beats that make you move, funky bass lines, a sick horn section, catchy as fuck, classic rock twists, channeling the best of the 80s, 90s, and 00s; poptimistic tunes to top your playlists and parties in the '20s
