HOW DID I END UP HERE?
In May of 2017 I quit my office job, gave up my house, built a bed in the back of my minivan, and hit the road. I’ve been taking my music to all corners of this beautiful country ever since. Nothing brings me more joy than sharing music, whether it’s performing my original songs, playing standup bass for acts like John Craigie, Josiah Johnson, Kit Center and the Hollow Bones, and the Rainbow Girls, putting on a fancy dress and serenading folks with Brazilian classics in Soneca, or just sitting around a fire with friends, playing pass-the-guitar.

I never imagined, when I decided to make this change, that I would find myself playing the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, or the Macky Auditorium in Boulder, or that I’d get to share a stage with the likes of Tallest Man on Earth and Langhorne Slim, or get a shout-out on NPR’s All Songs Considered! And this is just the beginning! I have no idea where this road will take me, but I am astonished and thrilled (and terrified) every day.

HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT ME
Paying the cover, leaving tips in the tip jar, spreading the word, someday, buying my album :) Thanks to Patreon, now folks can support me in between performances as well. Your generosity helps me gas up the van to get to my gigs, and takes care of me while I’m doing all the nitty gritty—booking, rehearsing, coordinating the massive project that is making an album, driving hundreds of miles between shows, and, of course, making time to write and create so that I can share all this with you.

I could sing all day long to myself (and I do) but I have learned that gifts are given to be shared, and that a song transforms when it has someone to receive it. A musician is nothing without her audience. Thank you for your listening ears, and your support, however you choose to show it.

The things I never post on social media!
  • Exclusive performance videos
  • Blogs, photos, videos from the road

You've been with me from the beginning! (It's still just the beginning!) Maybe you can't always make it out to a show, but you still want to pass on a little something to help. Thank you!! I'll take it! I'll do something important with it, and make something beautiful.

Turning music from a side-gig to my main responsibility changes the game. Your generosity lets me soothe the Worrying Wanda in me, and focus on creating. That is invaluable. Thank you for being a part of this adventure!
