Original Music as a Passion....
I perform consistently in both the classical world as well as the rock and metal worlds with music groups locally and over-seas. Some of these groups have included Aesma Daeva (Minneapolis based opera metal band) and Visions of Atlantis (Austrian-based symphonic rock band). I’ve toured North America, Europe and China with these bands as well as wrote my own songs with them. I have done guest vocal work for musical groups in France, Germany, Argentina, US, Norway, Belgium, Czech Republic and this list grows every day. I currently sing, write and perform with three music projects:
- Demandolx: A new opera composed by VoA VoXyD, libretto and vocal parts by Melissa Ferlaak
- MY Eternel: An ethereal neoclassical music project
- Plague of Stars: A doom metal project
I’ve written and recorded ten full albums, performed on two DVDs, and sung as a guest on eleven additional albums. Additionally, I am a founding member of Eve's Apple, a collective of female singers fronting rock/metal bands designed to empower women in the music industry.
I have performed with organizations such as Theatre Latte Da, Thursday Musical, the Schubert Club, Twin Cities Opera Scenes, New England Conservatory, Order of the Artists, and Coro!
I teach voice both in person to local people but also through Skype to students across the globe. I also currently work for Children's Theatre Company.
