I am a patchwork of nationalities, in the best possible way… I’m half Spanish and half American, yet have neither accent to prove it. I’m a twin. Born in Italy, both my brothers and I spent most of our childhood in England. I was classically trained on the piano from six years old and at eleven, my family left what we knew behind, to sail halfway around the world on a 44ft catamaran. The five of us and a Yamaha p60 piano.
We were educated by the world and my mom… from Florida to New Zealand with all the cultures, islands and countries in between. Those three years of sailing lead us to New Zealand, where Queenstown became the new home.
Accustomed to a wall-less classroom, and an ever-changing way of life. I left high school a year early to be a diver at the Dubai Aquarium, whilst my dad, king Marine Biologist, held the keys to the biggest tank in the world. Ever-changing as I said, I then deferred University to become a pro-kiteboarder. Ultimately though, following a number of titles and injuries, my love for words and music brought me a Bachelor Degree in Music, classical piano performance at Otago University, NZ.
A few months after graduation, I booked a one way ticket to Los Angeles, February 2017, to write and record my first self-titled EP. The five song EP, produced by Grammy Award winning engineer Cassidy Turbin, is a mix of pop-acoustic tracks with influences from Matchbox 20, Jewel, Counting Crows, Avril Lavigne, Macy Gray and Vanessa Carlton. The CD’s that accompanied my formative years at sea.
I am signed to THINK Music Inc for Licensing and I’m currently working on my sophomore EP, whilst Toplining sessions and playing shows in LA.
I’m still not quite sure where I’m from.
