Songwriter
Silverlake, CA
I'm a songwriter who writes in electronic, pop, and R&B styles with country-folk narrative lyrics and imagery. I'm looking for co-writers to write some great tunes and continue to develop my songwriting chops. I grew up in Chicago, spending most my time in the car, mesmerized by the rhythm of the road and singing made-up songs out the window as we crisscrossed the country on family trips. I was weaned on the Supremes and Dolly Parton, cut my teenage teeth on Yazoo and Peter Gabriel, and faithfully recorded every WBMX super minimix of house music on cassettes I still have today. My Chicago roots bring tornadoes, rain, and sky to my lyrics, mirroring the Midwest's meditative melancholy. Through these influences, I meld country-folk narratives and blues vocals with a dense forest of electronics and beats into simple songs of love and loss. I sing sad, and that's OK.
