Meet Your Artist

Introduction

I've been a musician for as long as I can remember.  I sang publicly for the first time when I was 6, in a church Christmas program.  Since then I've been learning and performing music across Arizona, the United States and into Canada. I'm Native American from the Gila River tribe in Southern Arizona, and I also have Mexican blood. Besides that, all I can say is that my heart beats music, and I love making people happy with my songs.

Inspiration

I'm driven by a strong desire to give the best I can, whether performing our National Anthem before thousands at a ball game or singing for a few friends in someone's living room.  My influences are varied, ranging from Gospel to Blues to Rock to Country.  My mother's spirit is a constant inspiration to me, and I can still hear her voice gently guiding me in my art and in my life.
