Where are you currently based?
Los Angeles, California!
I have been singing ever since I could talk and had solos in preschool and elementary school choir. When I was old enough, I joined the school plays and started to sing on the altar at church. That’s where it all started!
I’ve been performing live here in Los Angeles and am so excited to be building hype around my first ever EP!
Being named Jersey Boy after being so inspired by the sound that floods the place I grew up, was a defining moment in recognizing where I want my sound to go. Not only having the influence of my past but working with producer Joe Pepe to really bring that sound to life and trusting him to take it in the right direction.
This EP was written so linearly, which is why I had decided to release it as a unit. The songs felt like the perfect batch of stories packaged into a moment of time.
Jersey Boy was produced and recorded with Joe Pepe at his studio in Burbank! I kept sending him songs and being like “Can we do this, can we do that? I have another one!” He really made this project come to life! I then had it sent off to mix engineer and friend, Carl Bahner who resides on the east coast. Then the song was sent overseas to mastering engineer Nic Di Lorenzo in Australia. It has been quite a journey!
Having recorded in several different studios, I knew what I was getting into with this project, but it’s always fun to work with new people and see their workflow. Joe is a beast. He produced these tunes efficiently, making for a very smooth delivery (once we established a vibe), and let me tell ya, we cranked out vocals on our last day together. We both had committed to a long, hard-working day in the studio that consisted of recording and comping all vocals! It was very rewarding once it was done.
As summer shows come to a close, I am already planning on a few more showcases for September and October. Stay tuned!
Truthfully, the pandemic and lockdown forced me to take myself more seriously and get extra creative. This helped me realize what I want to do with my career and what I have to continue doing to be a successful artist.
Design and create for my artist project and other client’s musical projects. I love developing concepts and designing release rollouts. If that doesn’t count since it’s in the same realm, haha, I like video games and going out to try new food and drinks with friends.
I am currently listening to Courtney Govan’s new single “before (not after)” what a musical masterpiece!
Heading back to Nashville to finish some MORE tunes! Might be a fun little surprise thrown in there as well 😉 and of course, more shows!
