Bio

I was born in 1976. I was obsessed with music. I took curtain rods to my Dad's guitar in hopes of it becoming a cello that way. Eventually I begged my way to violin lessons when I was 8. People told me I was good. I took Junior High choir. I began to learn vocal technique. People still told me I was good and I started to think there was something to this music thing in regard to my future. I begged my way to getting a piano when I was 11. I taught myself to play it and began writing songs, but what does an 11 year old know about anything? I dreamed of attending Interlochen Arts Academy and begged my way to an audition. My Mom feared it was too expensive. I was accepted and got a scholarship. That was the first time I remember feeling like nothing was impossible if you set your mind to it. This would become very important later on. I graduated in 1994 and moved to LA soon after. I signed to a tiny indie label, then to Rondor Publishing a few years later. I made some records. You can buy them online. LA was sucking the life out of me so I moved to Chicago and then New York City. In New York I finally got what I had always wanted: a major label record deal. RCA and Sony Classical had a bidding war over me and I felt pretty cool right about then. I chose Sony. Now they're the same thing. Who knew? I made a record in LA with Patrick Leonard. It was probably the most amazing experience of my lifetime. I asked ot be let out of my contract. It wasn't working. Sony obliged at the end of 2004. Since then I've made records in my apartment. I enjoy that. You can buy them online. I tour when I can and wish I could tour more often. Gas is expensive. If you have made it this far you have a pretty amazing attention span for 2009. If you want to know anything else find me on Facebook, MySpace or Twitter. I love to hear from people.
