I am a composer of music, a session singer, and a voiceover artist. I was also with independent label Downtown Records from its inception in January of 2006 through April of 2012, working in A&R.
I’ve worked in the field of music performance for nearly two decades (admittedly, I got my start a little early) singing background and lead session vocals for children’s records. Over the years I’ve honed my skills singing for other people, and I’ve been lucky enough to sing many a demo for composers writing for major artists such as Hillary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, and Brie Larson, perform backgrounds for artists like flame-haired-friend Brett Dennen, and arrange for singer-songwriters such as William Fitzsimmons, among many other amazing local New York artists.
Through that world, I found that I also have a talent and passion for voiceover. I’ve realized the common thread is just… making things. There’s something magical about delivering a performance that previously only lived in someone’s mind: bringing about something tangible out of all of the intangible. And that’s essentially how I arrived here.
Of course, one of the most gratifying pieces of that process is actually writing music, which I have been doing for a bit over ten years now. I began writing as an artist myself, but over the years have found that writing for other people is equally wonderful. I am guided by the same principal as in voiceover and session singing: achieving that ephemeral performance for someone within a specific set of guidelines. It can be true song – four minutes of verse, prechorus, chorus, bridge – or an abbreviated version in the form of a jingle, or an extended and less structured score.
At heart, I consider myself a writer, and I approach all of my performance with that sensibility. I am most concerned with what serves a piece best, whether i am singing, speaking, or composing it myself. It’s always about what makes a stanza of music or a paragraph of copy a little jewel of something incredible, conveying a depth of emotion and perspective in four chords or thirty seconds. My job is to determine what performance serves that jewel of composition best.
