“We’re totally in love with this energetic "new" performer”
My musical background:
I have been performing since I was 6 years old at the Hollywood Playhouse in Hollywood, FL. I stood on stage with some of the greats like Josh Gad and Randy Rainbow. Yes, all three of us did Mary Poppins in the late 80s. Since, then I received my degree in Musical Theatre from Florida State University. After college, I have been blessed to perform professionally ever since. I've been blessed to travel the world and see amazing art being created. I come from a theatrical place with all of my music. Everything is super concept and could easily be done as a song cycle. "Hint, hint".
I grew up influenced by artists like Celine Dion, Alanis Morissette, Lauyrn Hill, PINK, Whitney Houston, Mary J Blidge, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Marley, Journey, RENT, Elton John, and Stevie Wonder. I'm also from Miami and part of being in so-flo is growing up listening to Gloria Estefan, Reggeaton, and other Latin (world) music. So, i'm super eclectic. Boogie Woogie Woogie.
It hasn't always been raindrops on roses for me. I struggled almost my whole life- to get the place I am in- to release this concept album to the world. It was only through the transmutation of my negativity into this EP, was I able to free myself from it. I really hope y'all like it!
My theory on "good music":
For me to classify a song as GOOD. It has to either move my soul or make me shake my ass.
