Playful yet introspective, her compositions reflect her love of jazz and instrumental music.
Notable past performances include the Halifax Jazz Festival, Open Waters Festival, the 21stCentury Guitar Conference and Deep Roots Music Festival, as well as supporting musicians at Prismatic Arts Festival and Nova Scotia Music Week.
Her latest release Groundless Apprehensions is a post-bop modern jazz compilation featuring her original music and arrangements. Canadian jazz veterans Paul Tynan (trumpet) and Tom Roach (drums), as well as Andrew Jackson (trombone) and Matt MacLennan (bass) were part of the quintet that brings Groundless Apprehensions to life. The album was nominated for Jazz Recording of the year for both the Nova Scotia Music Awards and the East Coast Music Awards.
