Hello and thank you for your interest in hiring me for your event! I have been sharing music for special events and as an independent artist for almost 20 years. I have been hired to sing at wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours, funerals, corporate events, and holiday parties, and I am hoping to add some yoga classes and baby-welcoming ceremonies to the list!
I am a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist (guitar and piano), and I am happy to share either original music or covers of your favorite songs for your event. As a solo artist, I excel at performing pop, folk, country, and classical styles. I also love to perform jazz and have an extremely talented guitarist at my disposal, and we are available for hire as a duo (a.joy).
What you can expect if you hire me: positivity, punctuality, prompt and clear responses to your communication efforts, appropriate attire and song selection to suit your event, and generally making the experience as pleasant and smooth as possible for everyone involved. Have a special song request for your event? I am more than happy to learn new material to meet your entertainment needs.
I look forward to hearing from you and providing special music for you and your guests!
In addition to special events, I have performed at the following venues in the Twin Cities over the last 10 years, and opened shows for Charlie Mars (2013), Joshua James (2012), and Marc Cohn/The Blind Boys of Alabama (2016).
