Hey guys, and welcome to my music page! Here, you can find more information about my background as a musician, my current band, Emissaries, and our latest track, Gauge, released on Soundcloud. I sing lead and play electric guitar, and my friends Matt (electric bass) and Garrett (drums) fill out the power trio.
Our sound is alternative rock with some progressive elements. Main influences would be grunge and clssic rock. Think Led Zeppelin, Queen, U2, and Aerosmith from the 70’s meets early 90’s Radiohead, Stone Temple Pilots, Soundgarden, and Smashing Pumpkins.
If you’re curious about more of my background in music, I’m a classically trained violist with a degree in music competition because I originally wanted to be a soundtrack composer after hearing The Last of the Mohicans soundtrack. I would still one day like to be one. 🙂 At one time, before I had my third child and things got a little crazy, I played in a couple of different symphonies, and since the age of twelve, when I began playing in a professional string quartet, I’ve played for parties, galas, funerals, and literally hundreds of weddings. I also had my own studio where I gave viola, violin, piano, and guitar lessons, as well as music theory and music compositions, vocals and songwriting.
Unfortunately, I had to quit classically performing and teaching three years ago when my mental health took a turn for the worse. I was able to still perform as Emissaries a few times, including at a festival in Nebraska (which was so much fun!), but then had to quit that too about two years ago. I’ve also performed as an electric guitarist and vocalist many times over the years at our church, Gateway Fellowship, in San Antonio, where my husband, Campbell, is also one of the pastors there.
