Music has always been there for me. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I've absorbed all the eclectic sounds around me--Filipino folk songs, classical, world, Latin, old school R&B, pop standards/crooners, show tunes, 80s and 90s new wave, postpunk, and indie rock, acapella, 60s and 70s folk artists and singer/songwriters. I gain meaning and satisfaction as a composer and performer, as well as helping others heal by providing therapeutic music in clinical settings. As a breast cancer survivor, I try to practice what I preach and do the things that make me happy! I've released two albums--"Now We're Here" in 2008 and "Patterns" in 2011. I'm currently working on my third album. My songs have been played on independent and internet radio stations in the U.S., Canada, England, and Spain. Always trying to find inspiration for writing new songs in my daily life. We all have a story that's worth telling.
