Q: What got you to start singing? Is it something you’ve always done or did you find your talent later in life?
A: I have been singing from day one. My earliest memories all revolve around music. My Father has played guitar my entire life and there was always music on in the house and in the car. My Mom is not musical at all, but that never stopped her from singing and dancing every day. I took a few years of musical training as a child and did recitals from time to time that taught me the value of practicing and how to handle being on stage. Music has always been my number one obsession in life from day one and I am very lucky that my family encouraged me to develop my voice.
Q: How many bands have you sang in?
A: The only band I have ever formally sang in is KT8. Aside from my KT8 sets over the last 6 years, I have been singing live as a guest with various bands, such as White Knuckle Driver, and recorded multiple projects in the last few years that are yet to be released.
Q: What was your first WP song you ever heard?
A: It’s obviously not WP, but my whole journey into RAC started when I heard the “All Skrewed Up” album by Screwdriver. There was nothing racial mentioned on the album, but once I heard it I was curious and had to hear more from them immediately. That was when I heard the opening drum beat to “Boots and Braces/Voice of Europe” and I was consumed.
Q: You are currently working on an album. Can you give us any details about it yet?
A: I cannot! But I am hard at work on it and I can’t wait for you all to hear it.
Q: Any good stories about being on stage?
A: I have many great stories about being on stage! My most favorite memories are the shows I did when I was pregnant. I did 2 shows with my first pregnancy and it was really special for me to be able to do that and have those pictures to show my children - there you are up there with Mama! I noticed that I was a lot shorter of breath as the pregnancy went on and the later show that I did was actually a challenge to get through the set with the energy level i’m used to performing at and my diminished lung capacity. Very special memories!
Q: Musical Influences?
A: I couldn’t fit all of my musical influences into a single interview, it’s not even possible! Music has been such a big part of my life for as long as I can remember and the music I listen to is quite diverse. From True Norwegian Black Metal to classic country to various eras of punk rock to classical, jazz, thrash and everything in between. There is absolutely no way I could ever even identify how all of these groups have influenced me!

Q: There are many different paths your music could have taken, what influenced you to take this route?
A: I’ve actually been asked this question by people very, very close to me over the years to be sure I was sure this was the path for me. To me, its always been the only option. I never even considered doing anything with my voice that was not 100% true to me and my beliefs. I have no interest in writing or playing for people who are not like minded. It would never be authentic if I were to attempt to censor myself so I can play to a neutral crowd. I have a beautiful life in Orange County and have no interest in notoriety - I simply want to share the music in my heart.
Q: What is your favorite song to perform?
A: My favorite song to perform is Streetfight by Skrewdriver - the 86 version. When I first added it to my set, I messed it up almost every single time - on stage, in front of people, like a bad nightmare. It comes at you so quickly and the way the song is structured you have to concentrate on what part is coming at you next - there is no room for error. The first time I successful played it live it was such an accomplishment for me because I left it on the setlist specifically to challenge myself and I did it! Every time I play it live I still get a rush when I pull it off because I struggled so hard with it for a few years.
Q: Any songs from another band that you would like to perform?
A: I would love to do a Landser set in German! I dream, of course - but, that would be amazing challenge for me and I think it would be awesome to share that fresh perspective with people.
Q: Your first recording was recently released on the Kill Baby, Kill! tribute album “Violent Times.” Why did you choose to cover and record ‘My Name is Hate’
A: I choose to cover “My Name is Hate” because I am always looking to add aggressive and challenging songs to my set list. My Husband actually approached me when I was preparing for a show a few years ago and said he thought it would be a great song for me to cover. We practiced and practiced and it ended up working quite well with my spin on it. It has always been a dream of mine to record, so when I was contacted to be part of the “Violent Times” release it was an immediate YES and I was hard at work. To have my first release on the B side to an unreleased Kill Baby, Kill song is an absolute honor.
Q: What is your writing process like?
A: My writing process is chaos. I write whenever I can. My phone is filled with notes that range from phrases that inspire me to fully developed verses to 2 minute voice recordings. I am pretty much always either humming or have headphones on at all times. The other day I wrote a complete chorus for a new recording while I was cleaning out my children’s old clothes in their dressers. I close the door and sing while I do chores or cook or even at the gym - my gears are always turning!
Q: What has been your biggest challenge as a singer or just biggest challenge as a female singer in this movement/scene?
A: This is another question I get asked quite often and my answer always surprises people. They expect me to tell of my eternal struggle as a female in this scene, but I have been treated with nothing but the utmost respect from the men and women of our movement. The fact that I am a female has never negatively affected my journey with KT8. The things I struggled with and the trials I have endured are very standard and something every new band trying to earn respect experiences. It makes me even prouder to be in the position I am in now because I get to represent and interact with people all over the world who have been so righteous and encouraging towards me. The treatment I have experienced over the years of playing shows across the United States has only solidified and intensified my dedication to our people.
The biggest challenge that I have had with my own development as a singer is building courage. To push things forward and make progress, I needed to learn that no one is going to just hand me opportunities - I need to speak up and create them. There have been times when I have had to really push myself to get over the initial intimidation that comes along with performing, writing and recording - but i’ve actually learned how to manage that fear. When things really started happening for me because I was fighting for what I wanted for KT8, it made me realize that the more I push forward and speak up, the more progress I am going to make. What’s the worst thing that can happen if I put myself out there? They say no? They laugh? None of that affects me anymore - I only focus on my next move.
Q:What are your musical goals?
A: I keep having to set new ones! First I wanted to play a live show, which happened in 2012. Then I wanted to record, and that has happened in 2018. Now, my current goal is to finish an original KT8 record. One step at a time!
Q: What inspires you to do what you do?
A: My children, my family, my loyal friends and the people I connect with around the world through KT8 inspire me to push this forward. I truly feel a calling to use my voice to speak to people who have the same views and may need a reminder that they are not alone. It can feel very isolating and exhausting to constantly fight for a vision that only you and your folk can understand, but if one person is touched by something I’ve done then I want to keep doing it forever.
Q: Do you have any rituals you perform before you go on stage (voice exercises)? And do you get nervous?
A: I never allow myself to get nervous because I get hyper focused before I go on stage. I always sneak somewhere and do voice exercises, stretch out and get my mind ready as a ritual before I go on stage.
Q: What led you to become racially aware?
A: I never had a realization or a moment that opened my eyes - this is who I am. I come from an ultra-traditional, ultra-patriotic bad-mother-fucker bloodline where race mixing and multiculturalism is not acceptable. Period. I was never sat down and lectured because I never needed that - we never questioned it. There was trouble in my home throughout my childhood, so I idolized and spent time with my Grandparents more and more as I got older. They spoke in old languages, had unquestionable loyalty and flat out rejected the narrative the media was trying to portray about a new, accepting society. I observed them closely and built the foundations of who I am with their examples. I am excited to set such an example for my children that they may never fall victim to the media narrative, as well.
Q: Any racially aware woman who you would consider an positive influence in your life ?
A: I am so fortunate to have an incredible network of women who are very close to me and share my same views. They have shared in the joy of my successes and supported me through finding myself. They know who they are! The Nationalist Women's Front is also hugely inspiring to me through your activism and camaraderie.
Q: Any advice to young white woman out there that questioned our beliefs do to societies negative pressures ?
A: My advice is pretty simple - don’t buy into the media narrative. It’s all bullshit. Our core beliefs are not as unpopular as the media and trolls would have you believe. We are everywhere. You are not alone. You are not wrong. There is a HUGE push right now to eradicate traditional values, push multiculturalism and demonize whites. Because they have a huge platform to spread their message, it can seem factual and intimidating. Don’t let it get to you. Push forward with a purpose. You can have the beautiful, righteous life of your dreams without compromise!
Q: Any advice to young white women who share our beliefs and also have a musical talent?
A: My biggest piece of advice is that no one is going to simply hand you an opportunity or career - you have to make it happen for yourself. You have to work hard and push forward every single day. Speak up and challenge yourself, even if you fail. Brush off people who doubt you and keep refining your talent. We need more women in RAC and it may seem like a daunting task, but there is a planet full of like minded people who are looking for the next generation to speak up. Fight for it!
