2016SukiBWsm-BJ When I was three years old, I sat down at the piano and picked out the melody to a Beethoven piece that was on the radio. My piano teacher mom thought she had a prodigy on her hands.

Since that misleadingly brilliant beginning, I have spent my life happily being an amateur musician. I sing choral music, and play guitar and sing jazz and folk. I was a founding member of the small vocal ensemble Ariose Singers and have performed in various other jazz and classical ensembles. Currently I am performing jazz (guitar and voice) as part of Persephone, a small jazz/pop group.

If you live in the Santa Cruz area and want to hear me live, please join my music email list. Visit our website to learn more:
