RiverCity Renegades
Vocals, Keys, and Bass
Started at RiverCity Rock Star Academy in September 2017

When did you start playing music and what was/is your influence for playing music? 
I was encouraged by my mom and influenced by my grandfather who wrote and played all kinds of instruments, mostly string instruments.

Tell us about your musical journey? 
I started playing clarinet at age 5, then violin and classical piano. I found my voice around age 12 and decided to leave the rest behind. I did some performance jazz and then got caught up in college so left it to basement bands and karaoke. Since coming to RiverCity I’ve been interested in learning other instruments, including the bass.

What is your favorite song you've played at RiverCity? 
I’m still fairly new to the Renegades, but I’ve really enjoyed ‘Born on the Bayou’ by Creedence Clearwater Revival. And definitely ‘Possum Kingdom’ by the Toadies.

What are your favorite bands or artists right now? Amy Winehouse, Melody Gardot, Eddie Vedder, Etta James, Black Keys, and Modest Mouse.

What is your ‘day job’ (besides a Rock Star at RiverCity)? 
When I’m not rockin’ with my fellow Renegades bandmates, I’m a psychologist.
