As a young girl growing up in the small town of Thorndale, Ontario, Canada, I was only 6 years old when I started falling in love with music. Being the youngest, I was close to my older sister Shari, and together we became a dynamic singing duo. Our first experience in front of an audience was in our local church where we felt truly encouraged. Also being a musician, our Swiss father predominantly played country & western music around the home. The sounds of Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson was our first real introduction to music. When Shari took on piano as her instrument, I wanted to follow in her footsteps, but it didn’t last long, and at the age of 13 I took on my fathers instrument, the guitar. After moving to London, Ontario, I started high school, and guitar became an obsession and an escape for me. After a few basic lessons from my father, I took it upon myself to continue crafting at this new skill. Constantly seeking for opportunities to perform, my sister and I entered singing competitions, entertained in senior homes, and signed up for open mics. The London Music Club was one of the first bars we stepped foot in, and the moment we were on stage was when I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. After being invited back several times to perform at the venue, we became regulars. One night at the LMC, we stumbled upon a blues guitarist with his band and were soo inspired that soon after we became deeply rooted in blues music.
Now this is just the beginning of my story and I have so much more to share with you. I hope you will continue to follow my blogs to learn more about me.
