What First got you into music?

It was always my dream to be a professional singer. Unfortunately, I was badly injured while I was pregnant 15 years ago and as a result of my injury and the debilitating pain, I had lost my ability to sing. This was the first time in my life that I couldn’t sing my way through the pain or use music as my means to communicate with the world. This went on for several years. 

During this time, my daughter was growing up and watching me. She had only ever seen the version of me at home, in pain, and not living my dreams. I wanted to show her that my disability should never prevent me from going out there and living my dreams. 

That was when I decided to pursue my musical career with everything I had! I wanted to be the best role model for my young daughter, and I wanted her to be proud of me. This was a strong motivator, and it gave me the push I needed to get out there and follow my dreams to sing, and I haven’t looked back since.

What do you enjoy most about being an artist?

The Human connection. I love connecting with people from all over the world and all walks of life through a song. It’s always so special to know that my music and stories resonate with people, uplifting them, leaving them inspired, or making them feel like they are not alone. That is very powerful and humbling.

What does your music say about you?

I am an overcomer. I am optimistic, resilient, and even a bit cheeky. I can take a painful or difficult experience and turn it into something beautiful and empowering.

When you create music, what is your personal purpose or goal?

My music is deeply rooted in my personal experiences, so each song I write tells a story of something I have been through – happy, sad, these stories all come from a place of strength and empowerment. 

What is the best advice you have been given?

Nobody is you, and that’s your superpower.

Where have you performed? What are your favorite and least favorite venues? Do you have any upcoming shows?

That’s a great question. Having been sidelined for many years by a life-changing injury, I never imagined I would sing again, much less perform live. Therefore, every opportunity to perform live is incredibly special to me, and each venue holds its own significance. I’ve had the chance to perform live throughout New York, as well as in Atlanta, Nashville, Canada, and the UK, and I’ve enjoyed each one.

I’m set to perform at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the iconic Woodstock location, for Hello Inclusion on July 12th. I have a feeling that this legendary venue might just become my favorite!

What is your favorite song to perform?

The title track of my debut EP, “I of the Storm, has been dubbed my anthem, and I love performing at every opportunity. The song embodies the essence of being fragile yet unbreakable, sweet and invincible… like a hurricane in lace… It’s that contradiction. I am the “I of the Storm”! It’s extra special when I hear fans singing along!

Who are your top two favorite artists of all time? Why those artists?

Roy Orbison – he possessed an incredible voice that could captivate me, bring a smile to my face, or move me to tears. Beyond his remarkable talent, I respected his humility and grounded nature. His resilience was admirable; despite the numerous challenges he faced, he persevered. His music and person deeply resonated with me.

Chris Stapleton-his voice ignites a fire in my soul. There is a magical element to his music that awakens something in me.

What is your biggest musical challenge?

Learning to play guitar to be able to accompany myself. It has been a slow process as I am still recovering from an accident, and I haven’t been able to play for as much as I would like, but I am on the mend, and hope to be able to play more and more.

How do you deal with writer’s block?

A10- I don’t think of it as writer’s block but as a perspective check. I’ve learned that sometimes, it’s necessary to step away from a song and come back to it later with a fresh perspective. At times, the story may not be prepared to unfold. I feel that when the timing is perfect, the words will pour out effortlessly, narrating the story from the best point of view possible. Many of the best songs I’ve written were started years ago and underwent several iterations at various stages of the healing journey. A song penned amidst fresh wounds lacks the serenity and clarity that emerges through the course of healing.

Would you have any advice for would-be artists or songwriters wanting to follow you?

This is a tough business, with a lot of rejections and harsh criticism. Having a good sense of who you are, and why you are doing this journey will help on the difficult days. 

If you were a tree, what kind would you be and why?

A Japanese Maple. I have one in my front yard, and I love admiring it through the changing seasons. In the spring with its fresh buds, in the summer and fall with its deep burgundy leaves dancing in the wind. And its majestic branches in the winter, cradling the promise of future buds. Even barren, it stands beautiful and graceful.

What would you do if you had to work but didn’t need the money?

I would still be doing music, and advocating for people with disabilities. I love to cook, and it’s always been a dream to do some kind of food business – like catering or a bistro/cafe.

Are you a cat or dog person?

We have one of each- A tabby named Julia and a Black Lab named Duke. I love them both, but I have always been more of a cat person.    

If you were to write an autobiography, what would the title be?

I of the Storm. Early on in my music career, I would have said ‘Don’t Count Me Out Just Yet” ” but as I came into my own, and found my voice and inner strength, I would have to say “I of the Storm”. I AM the I of the Storm!

 Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?

 Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, and Reese Witherspoon are all women of strength, beauty, grace, and humor. It would be an honor to be portrayed by any one of them.

If you could ask your future self-one question, what would it be? 

Why did you wait so long to start living your best life?

Do you shout out the answers at the TV whilst watching quiz shows?

All the time! Doesn’t everybody?

If you were talking to a younger version of you, what advice would you give yourself?

Be kind to yourself. Do what makes you happy. Believe in yourself. You’re not like others and that’s ok! Be proud of who you are. Everything you have gone through has prepared you for this journey and you are ready for what lies ahead!
