Artist Bio

Influences:   Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge, Fleetwood Mac, S.J. Tucker, Heather Alexander, Alan Parsons Project

I have played music since before I could reach the foot pedals on my family's Lowrey organ. Mainly a guitarist and also a drummer, I play with Random Fractions and Toyboat mostly at sci-fi cons but also at bars, houses, and outdoor fests. I've collaborated with other musicians for live performances and recordings. Focusing on a theme seems to be my key to finishing a whole album's worth of songs during FAWM (worked last year!) so I'll be doing that again this year - I'll be working with Arthurian legends, stories, people, and places. I just acquired new (though fairly simple) music notation software and am having a blast learning to navigate it; I suspect my creations will be largely - but not entirely - instrumental this year, which will be a new thing for me.

    Thanks so much for your kind words about β€œRed-winged Blackbird!” I am really digging the instrumentals this year - very cool!

    Thanks for the "Walt Kelly" comment. Pogo included a lot of general political satire. I think the only obscure bit I threw into the song was "Malarkey", which was the name of a character he used to represent Joseph McCarthy. But, as it's a synonym for "nonsense", the McCarthy connection probably doesn't matter.
