Violin, Piano, Guitar
"Through the voice of the violin, I can provide an expression of sorrow as the Baker's Wife haunts the Baker during 'No More.' Through the voices of the piano, I can relate a sense of community as the keys sing in harmony. Through the voice of the guitar, I can expose the acoustic vulnerability as someone sings about a new love.
Actor-Musicians enhance the stories we tell. That is why I am proud to be a musician."
