I am thrilled to announce Candyrat Records has released the music video for my fingerstyle arrangement of the 80s hit, “Take Me Home Tonight” by Eddie Money. I first discovered Candyrat Records when I was in high school back in the summer of 2011 - it was the turning point that led me down the path of pursuing modern fingerstyle guitar performance and composition. It’s surreal to see everything come full circle 10 years later in 2021. A longtime fingerstyle fan-girl’s dream come true! Many thanks to Rob and Holly Poland for having me as a guest artist on this legendary channel/record label, and shoutout to Alex Anderson as always for an excellent mixing/mastering job on this track. And last but not least, I couldn’t have done it without the support of my friends and family!
Available now on Spotify, Apple Music, and other streaming platforms.
Engineered, mixed, and mastered by Alex Anderson at Tree of Life Studio.
Video by soulfunksoulgood®. Opening scene filmed at Armadillo Music in Davis, CA. Shot entirely on iPhone 12 Pro Max.

My set from the 2nd Fingerstyle Hub Festival on April 11, 2020. Thanks to everyone who tuned in, and shoutout to Tommy Loose and Jon Hart for organizing this epic event and uniting us as one big fingerstyle community.
The Fretmonkey Women of Fingerstyle Concert at the Anaheim House of Blues was a success! Sharing the stage with the most legendary female guitarists in modern fingerstyle guitar, Kaki King, Muriel Anderson, Christie Lenee, Vicki Genfan, and many more, is definitely the biggest highlight of my music career thus far. It was an honor to be a part of such an iconic and historic event. Easily the best night ever and would love to do it all over again. Huge thanks to Alicia Cotabish and everyone at Fretmonkey Records for all their hard work in making this possible.
