Chicago Blues Fesitval and Pinetop Perkins's Workshop! - 6/30/18 

They said it couldn't be done, but I did it! I had the time of my life playing at Chicago Blues Festival on the Rosa Lounge Stage (right next to the Bean!) with the Street Jaxkson Band! The entire festival was filled with incredible talent and I was honored to be a part of it all. Right after the festival I flew straight to Clarksdale, Mississippi for Pinetop Perkins's Workshop Experience. I had the pleasure of learning from the great Fiona Boyes from Australia and ending the week performing at Ground Zero. This is going to be a great summer!

Classical Career Reach and School Shows! - 5/30/18 

Never would I have thought I would perform at the Chicago Symphony Center this early in my career! I was honored to sing and to be conducted by Cliff Colnot. It is the end of the year so I just finished up my end of the year jazz recitals, last shows with Blue Eclipse and Murder City Saints, and sitting in with groups! What a successful school year!

Recording, Videos, and New Band! - 4/30/18 

It has been a busy month! Blue Eclipse hit up the studio, Promusica, and started recording our EP which is due to be released sometime this year! I also released a cover of John Mayall & the Blues Breakers's (Eric Clapton) tune "Steppin' Out". I had my first rehearsals with a group known as Murder City Saints, and I am excited to be a part of their journey and to see what comes of it!

Minneapolis and Wisconsin visit! - 3/27/18 

Had an amazing time this Spring Break! Started out in Madison, WI sitting in at the Knuckle Down Saloon with Jesse Steinberg’s Group, and then headed to Wisconsin Rapids to sit in with Hijink for an old tune. Afterwards travelled to Minneapolis to play at a couple jams including Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que and Shaw’s with George Moye and got to meet Garry Johnson! Blue Eclipse also had its first gig in Chicago at the Elbo Room which was a great time! I also was a producer at the Women in Jazz Leadership Initiative Concert at the Garfield Conservatory!

Great News in February! - 2/28/18 

This past month has been amazing! I have been accepted to be a Grammy U Student Member so I can participate in Grammy-related matters. I also got the chance to perform at Mary Sammon's Blues Fling and sit in with him and Billy Branch. My band, Blue Eclipse, also made a Facebook Page that you can now follow:
