Short Bio (in your own words):
I’m just a lady who likes to play tunes and over-share my emotions. I currently live in beautiful Oakland, California, and have too many hobbies.

What was the first live concert you ever went to?

What is your funniest or worst tour experience?
On tour with Chaz and the Mattson 2, the van broke down, but the mobile mechanic had an 8-week-old puppy in his car!! I died. I was so happy our van broke down.

What THREE things are a must have when you go on tour or play a show?
Whiskey, Throat Coat, and Melatonin.

What was the first record you ever purchased?
Men At Work’s ‘Greatest Hits.’

If you had to record an EP of covers, which FIVE songs/artist would make the cut?
I record covers pretty often, but some I haven’t covered yet that I want to get to…
“Missing You (I Ain’t Missing You)” by John Waite
“Cold” by Annie Lennox
“Mr. Natural” by Little Wings
“Every Night” by Paul McCartney
“This Time Dad You’re Wrong” by Arthur Russell

What’s your preferred music format – vinyl, CD, digital, cassette – and why?
I like it all! My car is littered with CDs, my living room lined with Vinyls, two old computers filled with music, and I make mixtapes straight to tape in my music cave. I consume too much media for my own good.

What is your website and do you have a music video to share?

Here’s the first video I directed and edited myself

Here’s the first single off the new album.
