Abstract Promotional Bio

Her songs are equally at home sung between stage lights and the roar of the electric banjo, or under string lights in dim, whiskey-stained basements to a semi-cirle crowd sitting cross legged. Her voice is ethereal, her musicianship formidable. She weaves lyrics from seeds of memory and imagery plucked from the nature that engulfs her home. Words fly through the whirlwind of her banjo playing, which brings thrash-metal sensibilities to the Clawhammer technique. All is delivered with emotional energy that is frantic, desperate, and moving.
