Story behind your band/artist name: Alto- There aren't many female singer that are praised in the music industry for having deeper voices. The last mega stars with Alto voices were/are singers like Toni Braxton, Anita Baker, and just a few others.

I'm so passionate about music that certain songs bring me to tears when I hear them.
My mom and step dad are very eclectic and creative individuals. My step dad is an accomplished pianist in Northern California and has earned gold and platinum plaques for 80's hits he's contributed to, including Tina Turner's song "Private Dancer", and Gerald Levert's song "Casanova."
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: I have a new EP out called "Feminine Wavez." What sets my project apart from others is that every lyric that I wrote means so much more than what they seem on the surface. This project is for people who are true lovers of music and who may be able to relate to some of the circumstances discussed in the songs.
