I’ve been singing since I could talk. There’s always a tune or a score playing in my head. I started writing songs (poorly, at first!) when I was 7. I love melody because I’m a singer, but I was also trained to dance. I love rhythm as much as the melody.
I started out with Indian classical (Carnatic) voice training. My family moved to the Philippines when I was 9, and I picked up playing the violin in a Western classical orchestra when I was 10. I’ve always been influenced by other cultures as I had friends from all over the world growing up, and I grew to love hip hop, metal and pop when I moved to the US at 17 to study.
It wasn’t until I moved to California that I got into jazz and started thinking about writing, producing and releasing my own work. You’ll hear all these influences in my music. All of these things bring me so much joy. I hope you find some of that joy listening to my work and going through this site. Thanks for visiting!
