Occupation and/or Company:
• Vocal coach at Cooper Studios, Sherwood Park in Alberta, also Dance Theme in Edmonton.
• Singer/songwriter/performer with country rock group Dirt Road Angels at casinos, events, galas and rodeos around Alberta.
Solo act: I have released three solo CDs under my independent label “Squirrelly Girl Music” and perform country/classic rock with a separate band at casinos and bars in and around Edmonton.
Years of experience:
I have been performing on stage since the age of five, graduated with Distinction from the music program at Grant MacEwan University and have been performing professionally since 2000.
Personal & professional philosophy:
Work hard and play harder.
A few solo gigs but a busy spring and summer ahead with the other band I’m in called “Dirt Road Angels” playing major festivals, rodeos, events and opening for many top country acts in and around Alberta and Saskatchewan.
What is the highlight of your work?
There have been many but one that stands out in my mind is winning four awards at the North American Country Music Associations International (NACMAI) in March 2014 – two for singing, one for my video “Simple Things” (on YouTube), and one for my song “Little One” – yet to be released
I always aim high in life. I would love to one day win an ACMA award, a CCMA award and/or a Juno award. I would love to play Rexall Place as well. I would love a Top Ten charting hit.
I would love to just be happy making a living at making music.
