Her biggest influences include Norah Jones, Ingrid Michelson, Vanessa Carlton, John Mayer, Alicia Keys, Angus & Julia Stone, and Corinne Bailey Rae. In 2015 she started producing and recording her music after relocating to San Diego.

His 2015 CD release “Sol y Homenajes” received positive reviews and airplay on local public radio station KBCS 91.3FM. His sound is inspired by Bossa Nova, classic Cuban soneros, the music of Cape Verdean songstress Cesaria Evora & the warm, paired down ethos of 30’s era vintage jazz.
