She began honing her skills as an artist by performing throughout Texas and Oklahoma at various venues that featured local artists and national acts.

THE IDYLLISTS

THE IDYLLISTS

Los Angeles/NYC

 

The Idyllists put a modern twist on 60s Britpop and mix it with traditional American pop sensibilities, ultimately creating timeless rock & roll -- California style. Their new CD THE LONG HOURS BETWEEN SUNSET & MORNING plays like a throwback to drive-in movies, Sunliner convertibles, carefree walks along the water, and romance -- all while maintaining relevance to 2009.  The Idyllists not only prove that they could've been The London Fog house band during the 60s, but also a steady mainstay at The Viper Room in modern day 2010.
