At age three I began dance classes and never looked back. Through my childhood, my teens and adult years I was trained by choreographers who’ve choreographed for Justin Timberlake, Rihanna, Pink, Janet Jackson and more. Dancing and performing was everything to me. I lived and breathed it daily. My background in dance is what landed me in a girls singing group and after becoming one of the lead singers is where I really discovered my voice, talent, passion and love for singing. After the girls group parted, I was driven to pursue a solo career as a singer/songwriter and even though I don’t play an instrument yet, I’ve developed my own way to write songs.
My first mentor that helped me find my true singing voice was Lyrica Garrett, from vh1’s show “Love & Hip Hop.” She showed me that real singing is all about feeling what you sing, getting lost in the music/lyrics and fully letting go. Lyrica has forever changed the way I hear and sing music. I’ll always be so grateful for what she helped me to find within myself. The music I feel most connected to when I sing is old school blues/jazz/soul music and I find most of my inspiration through artists of those genres. After working with Lyrica, I berifly worked with Valerie Moorehouse, celebrity vocal coach, to learn some of the technical side and tools of singing. As my career has evolved I’ve had opportunities to work with experienced old timers like Randy Jackson from American Idol, Ron Fare from Geffen A&M Records, Barry Gordy Jr. from Motown Records, and others.
As a point of interest, I’m the granddaughter of Hollywood legend Edward Muhl, who was VP in charge of production at Universal Studios for more than 30 years, overseeing movies such as Psycho, The Birds, and To Kill A Mockingbird.
