Time for something upbeat and fun! My new single 'So High' is out now.
Listen here: here.
The last couple of years have been challenging and I think we could all use a dose of inspiration heading into 2022!
I wrote ONE (Song for Democracy) because I have come to realize that our democracy is incredibly fragile, and believe that the division and polarization we face is one of our greatest challenges. I think we need a positive message as an antidote, and to motivate us to work together.

I am excited to announce that I will be releasing songs regularly starting with 'All of Me'. This one is about getting in your own way, and draws on my jazz roots. I had a lot of fun with this arrangement and recorded all instruments!
I am finally wrapping up recording for my debut album Coming Home. What a journey it has been to learn how to do this on my own! I will be rolling out songs from the album slowly (and sprinkling in a few stand alones that may not end up on the album) starting this fall. The album as a whole reflects themes that have been central in my life: forging your own path, being true to yourself and finding empowerment even in the face of challenges.
I am so happy to join Carnegie Hall's Lullaby Project! I connect to this project both as a musician and as a mother, and what fun to collaborate with other artists around the world during our training. To learn more visit https://www.carnegiehall.org/Education.Programs/Lullaby-Project.
I am honored to have been profiled by the Malala Fund, a wonderful organization that helps girls from around the world to complete 12 years of safe, quality education. To learn about their programs and how to become involved, visit malala.org.
There is so much time, energy and cost that goes into producing music as an independent musician. I write, arrange and record my own music and often hire session musicians and mixing and mastering engineers to help with the final mix and master. Currently, I have been using music that I have already written while I learn about music production and distribution. What I would really love to do is to record music I am currently working on, and continue to write and improve. I have so much music in me and so much still to learn!
But I cannot do this without your support. Here are some ways you can help!
