Practicing what I preach

My performance history has been all over the board. Growing up, my family was incredibly musical and I performed in talent shows, churches, choirs and musicals. In college: musicals, choir, vocal ensembles, and of course, recitals and voice juries. In Chicago, some musicals, comedy sketch shows, a film, recording booths, and multiple bands. I’ve spent most of my professional life with a microphone in my hand singing the top hits of different genres. I lived on the road for nine months, performing three-hour shows three to five times a week.

Currently, I am solidifying my skills across the variety of genres I have (and haven’t) been exploring my entire life. I am aiming for the highest proficiency I can attain between popular styles (as well as classical) while working with master voice teacher, Jeanie LoVetri. I am noticing the paradox that, the more versatile I become in different genres, the more necessary choice becomes when switching between them. As I expand my limitations through technical development, I must be mindful of the qualities and modes that make a genre itself.

While I am not currently available for any longer-term commitment performance opportunities, I am interested in short term, remote collaboration. Feel free to connect.
