I was born July 26th, 1979 in North Vancouver B.C. (the bands only Vancouver native). I'm the novice of the group. Not only is this my first band, its the first time I've ever sung in public. I played several classical instruments when I was younger (piano, violin and for may years, the ukulele, jealous?), but never pursued any of them beyond adolescence. I didn't have the patience for theory. I've wanted to front a punk band since I was 6 and saw Joan Jett on TV. Brody Dale, Siouxie Sioux, Wendy O. Williams, Anne and Nancy Wilson, Debbie Harry, Patti Smith, Donita Sparks and L7. These women were and are my hero's. I saw Ten Days Late perform here in Vancouver in the early to mid nineties. That was my first live experience with female fronted punk rock and I knew instantly that I had to get up on that stage. I had my son when i was 18, and that put me on a different trajectory for the last 15 years, but I'd always wanted to get back into music. In August of 2012 Chadwick Sluys and I formed Spree Killers. I wanted to write music that would make everyone stop dead in their tracks. Crusty punk songs about fucking dead girls and back alley sex changes. Then, when you thought you knew what to expect, BAM, political speed metal. I'm a complete spazz and write from so many influences and so many personalities, that I think we change with each song. And I like that. I can't imagine my life without music or my band family. In 2013 I started Dead Girls Productions, booking local shows with a focus on brining touring bands into Vancouver. I love being a promoter in this city. Being surrounded by, and working with, so many talented people and bands is inspiring.
