My Musical goals are to have fun playing music while, hopefully, making a little money at it... at least enough to live comfortably or...I mean... get by without a really heavy day job( I am a bit of a dreamer).
Musicially, I enjoy the fusion of different genres but mainly I have the most exp. in Celtic music. I am currently interested in adding bluegrass, balkan,jazz,afro,and rock beats to trad. music writing songs.
I have played in: 1998's Song for Ireland, the spin off band of that--Myriad, Female celtic duo-- Syren, and Currently play in West Coast Celtic Group Kitangus. I am primarily a vocalist, ryhthm guitarist and Bodhran player with some exp. in lead mandolin. I like to write songs and have strong musical arrangement skills. I have taken part in the recording and producing of six indie Cd's:
West Coast Celtic 1997 (Kitangus), Song of The Iles 1998 (Myriad), Waves to the Sky 1999 (Syren), After the Mad King Dies 2000 (Caulron), Into the West 2001 (Kitnagus) and currently working on Kitangus Live TBA summer 2004 (Kitangus).
I love music MORE than Chocolate-- even the good quality stuff--REALLY and need to play regularily in order to stay sane.
