Album Notes
I am a compositional storyteller. Her pieces are through-composed journeys; they weave the listener through a series of magical sound-scapes, heavy grooves and unforgettable melodies. Her sound combines an eclectic array of musical genres including but not limited to traditional and contemporary jazz, soul, classical, afro-caribbean styles, funk and reggae.

My musical concept for my debut album will be to attempt to blend all of my interests in music together. Growing up, I was not only captured by the sound of bebop and traditional jazz, but also of hip-hop, indie rock, and the sound of synthesizers. In my compositions I try to use many elements of complex harmony and rhythm such as odd time signatures, and solo forms with multiple sections of chord changes - but I always keep my music based in heavy groove and singable melodies. I think my music is on the whole quite accessible to people who may not be jazz fans, yet it also has enough musical complexity to satisfy myself, as well as the jazz aficionados.

I can feel a shift in our culture towards gender inclusivity within the original and creative music scene. I believe there will soon be a long overdue explosion of successful female artistry in all genres, but especially in the jazz world. The conversation around gender inequality continues to expand, as is the growing awareness by both men and women of the areas of society which have imbalanced standards. I think there has never been a better time to be a female jazz musician in the history of this music thus far.
