About Quite the idea

/// music about ideas. big ideas, mostly. ///

I was born with music in my blood. Rhythm and singing came naturally; my Dad's guitar that I snuck in the closet and started fiddling with at age 13 felt like a natural extension of my mind.

Even more, I care about big, world-changing ideas. After studying philosophy, giving a TEDx talk about speciesism, and joining a few social justice movements, I feel that the most exciting and worthwhile expressions of my musical gifts are promoting ideas that I think will change the world or help correct some of its injustices. In addition to creating for its own sake, I want my music to be used to empower those who believe in its messages.

My lyrics, and/or musical experiments are working if it makes you think about something in a new way, and you say, "Hmm. That's quite the idea."
