I am a Native wind instrument player, songwriter, guitarist and percussion player.  I write songs that are from the heart and I'm grateful that the music has been well received.  I keep a busy performance schedule and am currently working on a new album for release in early 2015. The music from my second album has won two Indian Summer Music Awards and also was nominated for a Native American Music Award in 2014.  The music has been played on internet and FM radio.  My song, "All My Blessings" was featured on the Putumayo World Music 2014 compilation, Native America. I have performed on two CBS Morning TV shows, the music has been favorably reviewed and I have been interviewed in print and on the radio.

Along the way, my husband Josh and I have met wonderful people in the music community and many great musicians.  It has been a pleasure connecting with so many good people.  Thank you for visiting the site and please feel free to say hello on one of the social networks linked above!
