I thought they were gorgeous, magical things and I knew I had to play. I actually had to beg for piano lessons for 3 years until my parents finally bought a used upright for me to play. When did you decide it was something you would pursue to this extent, and why did you decide to do this in New York? I decided to do this in New York because I kept visiting, playing shows, and feeling at home in New York more than any other place.
Do you think our country has a distorted view of the arts? What do you think about this and how do you think communities should approach it? Oh boy, this is a big question.

I think there are many distortions in our country about many things, and yes, the arts are one of them, but it also depends where you are. One of the reasons I decided to move to New York …because I found here that everyone took what I did seriously. When I would tell people I was a writer or a musician in many other places they would ask me if it was a hobby or what else I did. When I spoke to people in New York, I found they would accept what I said and just ask me more questions about what I was doing with it, and it felt really good to be taken seriously for something.
All of that being said, I definitely think New York is one of the most accepting places in this country to be a artist.
I actually went to West Africa a few years ago to be in the midst of a culture where arts are part of life, not something separate or devalued. I found that pretty much if you are alive you are part of singing and dancing since you are born basically.
Yes, there are people who are Master Singers, and Master Dancers, but everyone engages in singing and dancing as a part of living which I loved, appreciated, and found comforting. I fear that it can divide male and female musicians more and make a spectacle out of being a female musician, especially in rock or rap, etc.
How do you straddle that fine line? Is it a bunch of man-haters? There are many men that perform with female artists, there are men on the Tinderbox Team, and we have had a lot of sponsorship and volunteer support from men. I try to create an environment that is open and inclusive, it just happens to have a focus of promoting female artists.
Macho-ness is certainly used a lot in rock music. So is femininity, depending on what the artist is going for.

Both can get on my nerves, but I feel it is really commercialized for women. When I went to purchase my first stick bag I knew I wanted the plain Vic Firth one, but the sales clerk pushed me to purchase the pink cheetah print one, no matter how many times I said no.
He lost in the end, and then I ended up playing a show where I had to use a set at the venue. It ended up being a pink cheetah print set. But I think this happens to men as well. My question is…has this ever happened to you, where people jump to make your musical image girly, or assume you will like something better because it is girly? And are there examples of this that happen to men, and do you think it is as widely criticized?

Is it criticized for women or accepted and expected? It can be particularly frustrating to have experiences going into music stores and not feel like you are being taken seriously. Lately I have been asking musicians what they think about costume and dressing for a performance.
I think that sometimes performers focus so much on the image, despite the fact that the outfit and antics may not be the best for your vocal performance, or your instrument. How do you approach this? The entire Commonwealth of Massachusetts has played a commercial and cultural role in the history of the United States.

Massachusetts was originally inhabited by tribes of the Algonquian language family such as the Wampanoag, Narragansett, Nipmuc, Pocomtuc, Mahican, and Massachusett. While cultivation of crops like squash and corn supplemented their diets, villages consisted of lodges called wigwams as well as longhouses, and tribes were led by male or female elders known as sachems.
