Spags, has been amazing audiences around the world with her virtuosic technique, inventive arrangements, and compelling performance style.
Widely known as an innovative performer, Spags creatively merges the classical violin world with the modern music world. Her unique artistry keeps her in demand throughout the United States, as well as internationally, where she can be heard performing at corporate events, fundraisers, private parties, exclusive weddings, trendy nightclubs, and high fashion runway events.
Classical training from an early age, on both piano and violin, along with a music degree from the Pennsylvania Sate University are responsible for shaping her technical foundation, while her undeniable love for a soulful groove, an infectious hip hop hook, a contemplative melody, or a raw rock n roll beat, are at the heart of her playing.
She literally plays all styles of music and can seamlessly jump from Dr. Dre to Frank Sinatra without skipping a beat. Her natural ability to weave all genres across all eras allows her to connect with audiences of all shapes and sizes. While it may seem like there is no rhyme or reason to the diverse and eclectic repertoire that can be heard pouring out of her cutting edge, 5-string, viper violin, Spags will simply explain, “I just play music that I like!” And that music, that she likes, seems to magically connect people of all ages and all places.
Some of her recent highlights include personal performances for Magic Johnson, Mitt Romney, Jenny Craig, Tony Gonzalez, and Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys, to name a few. She has toured with rock legend Dee Snider of the band Twisted Sister as well as Latin piano sensation Raul di Blasio and performed as the opening act for Steve Vai, Jaylib, Foreigner and the band FUN. Additionally, she has produced and performed in runway shows for many of LA’s top fashion designers. Some of her corporate clients include AOL, the AVP, Aston Martin, Bentley, Cartier, Juicy Couture, Porsche, Qualcomm, and the San Diego Chargers.
Spags has been featured on NBC Nightly News, LA Talk Live, KUSI Morning Show, U-T TV San Diego, San Diego Living, and has performed on several prime time drama series, including ABC’s “Dirty Sexy Money” and “What About Brian”, as well as NBC’s “Chuck”.
