How would you describe your music?

Inspiring! My music is my testimony!

What is your role in your band? In the studio? In business or marketing decisions?

I believe in taking full control of decisions that are made regarding my career. Although I am open for suggestions and constructive criticism. With the band I believe that we all are a team and nobodies opinion should be excluded. In the studio my role is not just sing but i enjoy taking part in the track selection. writing process, and mixing and editing process.

Describe your gear.

Soulful, Melodies, and Jazzy nuances! Live with a 4 piece band!

Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

Oh yes I believe there is a difference, the defining moment was when I realized their were no other women on a line up that i was scheduled to perform and wondered why.Later I learned that alot of times women are forced to prove themselves and are held to different standards as men. Its more difficult for women to have the same opportunity as a man even if she has more experience. From that it has made me stronger. My skin is thicker and I will not give up!

Do you see differences between generations of women musicians?

I do see the differences I noticed that music constantly evolves, but a little piece of history is implanted in every female musician and carried on to the future. Women musicians to me are like fine wine we only get better with time.

Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

The reason why I am still thriving in the music industry is only because God has been watching over me the entire time. And he puts people in my life that not only I can learn from but also people to protect me. I have learned to remain humble, give respect where it is do. Encourage the young. And to never give up!

Why did you choose to play the instrument you play?

Growing up in church I was encouraged to join the childrens choir. I was around 5 years old when was chosen to sing my first solo, I received so much love form that day, I just knew that singing was what I wanted to do and what I was supposed to do. My grandmother still has the program from that day!
