I am a singer, songwriter and musician from Vancouver and I love performing in front of a live audience, either as a solo artist or with a band. I am heavily influenced by rock music but I am also influenced by 80s pop and rock, R&B, blues, and folk. I consider my more upbeat material inspired mostly by DOROTHY, Bishop Briggs, and Two Feet, and my slower material to be influenced by Fleetwood Mac and James Bay. In my musical journey, I am honoured to have received the following awards and recognition: (2019) Nominee, Best In Vancouver by Live Acts Canada; (2017) Winner, Canadian Songwriting Competition – Rock Category; Winner, Best Music Video and Best Canadian Short – Our Voices Film Festival; (2016) Winner, Best Sound and Music, Reel to Real International Film Festival; (2015) Winner, Musician Of The Year, The Permanent Rain Press; (2016 to 2018) Nominee, Fraser Valley Music Awards. As a young teen songwriter and performer, I have also earned the following recognition: (2012) Winner, Maple Ridge Got Talent Youth Category- Countryfest; Top 12 Finalist, The Next Star; Top 7 Favourite Covers by One Direction. When people reach out to me and say they relate to my music and it acts as a vessel of universal emotions, I feel successful. This is why I love performing right when I am able to hear about how my music has touched them. I perform in a variety of venues, from intimate pubs and cafes around Vancouver through huge theatres like the Rogers Arena (my biggest venue so far), Queen Elizabeth Theatre and the Bell Performing Arts in BC; as well as the RBC Bluesfest in Ottawa, Ontario.
