Hometown: Adams, MN
Music Background: I have been singing and performing since I was a child and am so excited to be joining Distilled backing up Ali after years without a musical outlet!
Music Influence: Equal parts Alanis Morissette and Shania Twain if that’s possible. My home as a child was filled with Jefferson Airplane, Heart, Dylan and the Beatles upstairs—and Metallica and Nirvana in my brother’s car on the way to school. Madonna, Janet Jackson, Sheryl Crow, Gwen Stefani, Fiona Apple, Lauren Hill, Jenny Lewis, The Chicks. I’ll always credit Mariah Carey, Celine Dion and Axl Rose for my upper range and Hootie and the Blowfish for my lower range 😂.
Favorite Songs: Don’t Speak-No Doubt, Golden Hour-Kacey Musgraves, Strawberry Wine-Deana Carter, Don’t Get Me Wrong-the Pretenders, Manic Monday-the Bangles (Prince), Magic Man-Heart, Raspberry Beret-Prince, I Feel Fine-The Beatles. This is such a random smattering for real—there is no way to make this list LOL.
Most recent shows I’ve gone to/am going to: Interpol, Jungle with Tycho, Elton John, Haim, Third Eye Blind, The Decemberists, Gwen Stefani, Lady Gaga Jazz and Piano, Aussie Pink Floyd, The Killers, Death Cab for Cutie, Adele in Vegas. Tried for Duran Duran with Nile Rogers but it got cancelled!
Favorite Quote: "When you're a little kid, you're a little bit of everything...Artist, Scientist, Athlete, Scholar...sometimes it feels like growing up is a process of giving those things up, one by one." -Kevin Arnold (The Wonder Years)
