She writes confessional avant-garde pop/rock and concert music, having grown up playing in rock bands before studying classical composition and orchestration formally.

Her work has been described as “dark and beautiful” (Consequence of Sound), “satisfyingly dark” (Sequenza21) and “an emotional exorcism” (Sonic Scoop) as well as chosen as a TimeOut Critic’s Pick and featured on media outlets including NPR, NY1 and MNN.
Guy Fox – 8PM (www.guyfoxband.
Guy Fox is an Oakland based bands that effuses dancy high life vibes with their carefree indie vocals and hints of old soul. Infuse the energy of alternative rock with big band arrangements and funk beat breaks and you have the rare and impassioned music of Guy Fox.
The band is made up of Northeastern transplants drawn to the Bay Area by the romance of San Francisco. They played together throughout college; jamming at house parties and cultivating the free flow groove that makes their technically complex arrangements feel effortless.
A year after friend and band-mate, Pete Granquist (drums, vocals), relocated to the West Coast, Nate “Noodle” Witherbee (guitar, vocals, synthesizers) and Greg Waters (guitar, saxophone, vocals) packed up their car and moved to the Bay Area on a whim; an epic cross-country road trip ensued. The three friends were introduced to Charlie Moore (bass, vocals) at a house party, and Guy Fox was born.
