Apollo (2016)

Music has always been my favorite thing.  

I still want to be a musician when I grow up. 

I was born and raised in Eau Claire, Wisconsin where I first picked up a violin almost 30 years ago. I graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in Zoology and a focus on Astronomy.  Go figure.  

I currently live in Neenah, Wisconsin with my husband, 2 teenage sons, 5 chickens, 3 cats, 1 dog, 3 mortgages, 2 sisters, 1 small business, 5 (maybe 6) friends, 1 big lake, and too much snow.

I record and perform across Wisconsin and the near Midwest as a solo musician as well as with my band, Jones. My original music has been showcased on WPR's Simply Folk, Appleton's Mile of Music, Big Top Chautauqua, Holiday Music Motel Love On Holiday, 91.1 The Avenue, the Wisconsin Singer Songwriter Competition, WAPL 105.7 Home Brewed, and The Great Unknown Radio.

I have appeared as a guest violinist with many artists, including Cory Chisel, Nikki Lane, Sly Joe and the Smooth Operators, Traveling Suitcase, Sam Luna, and Sam Winch. 

Mercury is The Messenger.  It is a small red planet spinning fast around our sun. Mercury is quicksilver, a liquid metal that slips right through your hands. Mercury is a poison that could drive us mad or a car that could drive us away.......

About Me....


Apollo is The Healer.  He is the God of music;  the bringer of light and truth.  Apollo and his twin sister Artemis are the archers; the protectors. Apollo is hope in the face of the unknown.  It is a race. Apollo put man on the moon and changed everything.
