What do I play: folk metal, renaissance loudband, what I would call “atmoshperic” or “symphonic” metal for ease of understanding but it is really down to a bunch of subgenres, classic, medieval, renaissance soft band, folk, plain old rock ‘n’ roll if I have to. I have a very good library of black metal, but I really don’t think anyone wants me to go there. But then, who knows?
Random odds and bits about my self.
I refuse to play greek music. I ride llamas. I think McLovin is the new subcultural idol. I never watched Buffy or read Terry Pratchett. Heck, I don’t even know if I spelled his name right. I can’t wait for the next season of Heroes. IRL I have never drove a car. (or a llama, but that’s self explanatory now, right?) I actually like the color green more than red. I know what is the capital of Assyria (as well as what is my favourite color, I just mentioned it couple of lines earlier).
A bit of background, I have a wholesome musical education having earned a Diploma in Piano and Degrees in Harmony and Counterpoint. I also have 2.5 years of radio experience hosting a classical music radio show for the muni station back home. I also have more than 10 years of gigs experience, playing with bands of various genres (mostly folk/folkmetal and black metal and also medieval and renaissance consorts). This girl has No Shame, and No Stage Fright.
Spinning for people is better than drugs. Enough said. At least better than 4 Vicodins a day.
Immortal Moment in my RR Carreer: “I am here to rock the living crap out of this place”.
