This pop artist is from Montgomery Village, Maryland and has quite a set of pipes on her. Her sound is subdued and her lyrics are soulsearching. She received her first guitar at the age of 12 as a Christmas gift. Surrounded by a loving family of talented musicians, she drank it in like osmosis and revelled in the beauty of music. Equally talented in both guitar and piano, her songwriting style is unparalleled.

She draws on personal experience for her music. Waiting In The Wings is a song inspired by the unfortunate loss of her mother to cancer. She worked in bands until 1998, when she decided to break out on her own as a solo artist. If I Linger and Three Choosing are must-hear songs.
