Highly regarded German American singer-songwriter from Boston known for her hushed, conversational singing and darkly resonant, introspectively personal ballads. "Her songs feel at once fresh faced and firmly rooted, driven by the whispery sensuality of her voice," says the Boston Globe in its review of her 2014 CD, New Siberia. "She believes in the redemptive power of the shared secret; and is utterly unafraid to mine the darkest corners of her life for songs that turn fear into resilience and isolation into community."
