At the age of 10 she received a keyboard for Christmas, teaching herself the basics of music, then later, picking up the guitar. From there joining the Choir at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto! Being influenced by her partner and guitarist, Fabio Parovel, she discovered her voice was meant for the blues!
