My Bio

Well I started out playing violin when I was 3, then piano, then violin again until I was ten. I got really sick of instruments but I loved music, so I tried singing in the choir. To my surprise, I loved it, and even got some solos. I quit violin and started competing in talent shows. Won a couple, but my first, I got booed offstage. I started writing songs when I was 13, when my friend taught me how. We formed a pop group called Aquamarine, but we split up cause I had to move. I was always moving around a lot. I formed a 2nd group called Addicted, a trio, but we split up cause I had to yet again move to a different place. I was in a duo called Midnight, and I decided to go solo after we had a huge fight.
I made a lot of changes then in my sound, image, everything. Since then, I'd been faking in order to get along with my bandmates. We dressed the same way other pop groups did, sang the same love songs and party songs, the usual dance routines onstage thing. Now that I was solo, I wrote songs about what I really feel, inspired by rapper Eminem. I spoke my mind freely, and I never wrote about something I didn't feel. Sometimes I wrote about really risque stuff, like suicide. I did back-up vocals for some underground soul singers. Laid back R&B was what I loved the most. I still dresed sexy, but now it was more of a mixture of punk and hip hop.
I did a lot of wedding gigs and variety shows around DC and Baltimore. I ghost wrote for this producer and provided vocals on his tracks, but he was scared by my lyrics and decided to stop working with me. I was also Asian-American, which he was scared the public wouldn't accept. I won a songwriting contest but wasn't able to accept the award cause I was locked up at the time. I'm out now, and I'm looking to record a demo on my own and sign with a major label. I need a good producer and engineer to work with before I think about representation to shop it. If you're scared to work with an artist who's different from the masses and will definitely stir up controversy, don't even bother talking to me.
