Art Rock, Neo-Prog, Progressive Folk, Progressive Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Symphonic Rock, Canterbury Prog, Krautrock, New Prog, Crossover Prog, Progressive Electronic, Also a fan of other genres of music
I was raised on a small island off Canada's West Coast called Saltspring. It was the musical equivalent to Darwin's Galapagos experiment; completely isolated from the Prog/Punk rivalry. I grew up loving many genres of music, no matter how contradictory. I moved to Toronto to pursue an education and career in music. After a few years living the "starving artist's" life of an indie singer/songwriter I was fortunate to find a position in the acclaimed concert series Classic Albums Live. We recreate classic rock albums live onstage "note for note, cut for cut", no matter how ambitious or complex. Our founder/producer Craig Martin has bestowed upon me the title "The First Lady of Classic Albums Live" While we regularly tour shows all over North America, and I find time to collaborate with other artists as a guest in the studio and on stage, I'm still pursuing my solo career, and in fact my first full length album is slated for release later this year.
Influences or Favorite Bands
While many of my favorite and influential musics might be completely unknown to fans of Prog (Post-Punk, Psycho-billy, Americana, Goth) I am also an unapologetic fan of Prog and Art Rock. I particularly like Yes, early Genesis, Jethro Tull and The Strawbs, but my two earliest and most important loves and influences have been Queen and Kate Bush.
