Lianna's main drive. The metal and pop worlds run her life, her music a generous mix of heavy and catchy. Currently focused on the magical instrument known as the ukulele, she gigged locally in Bloomington and will continue to broaden her singer-songwriter career in her hometown, DC.
Lianna has a Bachelors and Masters in Jazz Studies, and is a member of Shannon Gunn and the Bullettes big band and combo. She has a steady Washington DC gigging streak, and has performed at Bohemian Caverns, Bargemusic in Brooklyn, The Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club, and at gatherings featuring General Petraeus and LTG Bostick. Most of her studies involved post bop, arranging, and teaching.
Lianna is an experienced composer and arranger, with close to 10 full arrangements of jazz combo tunes and big band arrangements, as well as a plethora of personal material. She's got original rock/jazz/pop, musicals, and developing film scores. She recently did the score for the independent 2017 film, Stardust and Moonbeams.
