Brooklyn, NY – “From 2010 to 2011, I was the singer and songwriter for the band Holy Spirits. We self-released our first EP in 2010 and released our second via Father Daughter Records in 2011. In its various line-ups as a two, three and five piece band, we played nearly 40 shows. In 2011 we toured California and the East Coast, played at the South by Southwest Festival, and released seven music videos in collaboration with various animators and directors.I have created original sound and music scores for dance artists, student and independent shorts, including the video art short “A New Daylight Soap” which won best short film at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Film Festival. I am in on-going development of a performance work titled “it took nine days to eat”, which examines the relationship between transcendence and criminality through the use of movement, sound, text, and lighting restrictions. This piece has been performed at Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Center for Performance Research, and Dixon Place. Since 2009, I have been working as a performer with award-winning choreographer Dean Moss in his latest work, “Nameless forest”, which was nominated for an NYC Dance (Bessie) Award for Outstanding Production in 2011. I wrote and performed an original song for the piece, which has toured the United Staes and South Korea. In 2012 I was a music resident at Art Farm, Nebraska.”
