Embrace Your Passion

I was encouraged in music by my grandmother Far Mor, born in Sweden. She was the organist for the Lutheran Church in Hollywood, CA. But music didn't sink into my soul until high school when I went to my first bluegrass festival with my oldest sister and fell head over heals in love with the mandolin. I've been a music wanderer ever since, learning mandolin, guitar, singing and songwriting. Eventually I attended college and earned a music degree in Commercial Music/Jazz Studies and Audio Engineering.  I enjoy broad range of musical genres.

Live Life in Song

From the Pacific Northwest to California and even the land down under is where I've traveled for expressing my love for acoustic music performance. Currently I reside in Thousand Oaks, CA where I perform at numerous venues all around Southern Calif as well as a certain lovely church called St. Francis Episcopal in Simi Valley, CA. Currently I have a duo called April Fusion with John Cheas on flute, sax and vocals. Both John and I were born in the month of April so the duo name seemed quite fitting. At other times I perform solo and with other various bands. Collaboration and discovery make for beautiful creations of sounds and songs!

Be Inspired By Everything

Life can seem like it beats you down but actually there's inspiration all around. Lyrics can be born from anywhere such a casual conversation and all the way to a deep emotional situation. I'm always creating, I'm always present and I'm very hypersensitive to my surroundings. It's what makes me tick and I find it truly enjoyable to puzzle together words with my experience. It's my life.
