Check out the video for my song Numb, from my upcoming EP! I think, to date, this is one of my favorite songs that I’ve written, and I was so happy to have my friends Cindy Chou and Ann Chang playing clarinet and violin on it. It made the experience extra special :) They were great cheerleaders, spending all those hours trying to get the song all worked out in those tiny UW practice rooms, and I couldn’t have done it without them!
I can’t believe it’s actually HAPPENING! On Feb. 25th 2014 I’m finally releasing my long lost Scarlett EP (which has been siting collecting dust on a hard drive for 5 years now literally)!
This is a video about making the album and why it took me so long to release it. (I have no idea why the thumb nail pic is so weird but the video is better than the pic I promise!)
Thank you to my friends Cindy Chou, Ann Chang, Lauren Roth and Jacques Willis for playing on my EP back in the good old rainy Seattle days.
Most importantly, this album is dedicated to my Grandma Dorris who first inspired me to become a musician. RIP Grandma I love you.
Here is a brand new video of my live performance at Witzend of my song “Sunny Lemonade”. I wrote this song on New Years Day reflecting back on a year full of contrast living in LA. This song is incredibly emotional and hard for me to sing, but I really love it and hope you do too. I was with my Grandpa this week, and looking at old 1950’s family footage and got inspired to make this backdrop for the song! Yes, my Papa is the little boy running around half naked in it! Enjoy:)
Thanks Dan and Kevin for having me on your awesome Barking Mad Podcast. I love you guys!

I haven’t blogged in a seriously long time which is silly of me! But, I’ve been playing a bunch of live shows around LA, like Witzend in Venice and Room 5 in Hollywood, and trying out new songs every time! I’ve even taken up the guitar, which I love because I can face the audience when I play. Too often I feel so limited being crunched in the corner playing piano! I’m excited for the new direction songwriting on guitar is taking me too.
I’ve got some super exciting news I can’t wait to share…more to come soon. Stay tuned!
My Grandma’s Birthday was yesterday. I love her with all my heart, and wrote this song “Tears” about her.
My Grandmother has been living with Parkinson’s Disease since I was a young child. I have watched the disease eat away at her grandually throughout my life. It is a terrible, terrible disease, but she is the strongest person I know, and continues to chose everyday to live.
My Grandma means the world to me. She was the one who introduced me to music and piano, and my favorite childhood memories are of staying with her and my Grandpa. They have provided me with endless love, encouragement and stability.
