Show @ 343 Labs & Sunday Masterclass: From the Shower to the Stage
"TO LIVE IS THE RAREST THING IN THE WORLD. MOST PEOPLE EXIST, THAT IS ALL." - OSCAR WILDE
Call me, Lionheart.
I'm super excited to perform at an event this Thursday hosted by I Heart Producers x 343 Labs. 343 Labs is a vibey loft and music production space in Chinatown, NYC. Great people + great space. I'll try to livestream it, so follow me on Instagram and Facebook to catch it!
I was going to wait until I finished new music until I performed again... but then I decided to I simply finish it. Don't wait and put what you want on hold, Lionheart.

SET YOUR LIFE TO MUSIC OPEN STUDIOS + MASTERCLASS SERIES
I've been going live Monday - Thursday at noon EST on Instagram and Facebook and sharing quick tips around the songwriting process.
Join the free masterclass on Sunday, April 28 at 8pm EST. There will be a live Q&A plus your questions answered and guidance for your next steps. There will also be a replay available for those of you who aren't able to attend live.
My students Lee Anderson (mother) and Ava Anderson (daughter) just released their EP! This was the album I shared pics of in the studio with you. I'm beyond proud and truly love the songs. Ava's a talented young singer, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist, and I'm excited for her future.
Check it out on Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes, and more.
Check out the video above, where I performed Reverse, an electronic beats x opera piece that I wrote with Elkin Pautt (pictured at our recording session below). This show above was at Manetamed in Brooklyn, NYC.
I could never and would never do it without u. Love ya.
Mad love. Wishing you inspiration and expansion.

Alarke (AKA Mary Alouette) stands out with her compelling twist of experiences as an international opera singer turned Gypsy jazz singer turned award-winning electronic pop singer and songwriter.
Throughout her 25-year professional career, Alarke has mesmerized audiences from the Kennedy Center, the Rainbow Room, and Carnegie Hall to Fabrica Del Arte in Havana, Cuba, Romani caravans in Samois sur Seine, France, and castles in the Italian Alps. She's written songs that have gone to NBC's World Of Dance and won the Grand Prize in the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Competition, performed at the Apollo's National Tour, won artist residencies at Strathmore and the Brooklyn Arts Council, and written songs with residents at the Ritsona Refugee Camp in Greece.
Her music is an exciting, vibey, future-forward melt of pop, electronic, dance, and world music.
