Biography

Based in Los Angeles, Audrey grew up in rural Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. She moved to Boston to study music composition and voice, subsequently adopting the harp as a creative tool for self-accompaniment and sonic exploration. Musically, Audrey is influenced by artists such as Moondog, Patti Smith, Kate Bush, and Laurie Anderson, and she draws inspiration from vintage animation scores, mid-century lounge, modern concert music, and rock. 

Audrey has worked and/or performed with Gem Club, Hank Shocklee, Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, (Vapors of) Morphine, Roger Clark Miller (Mission of Burma) and many others. She has studied with groups such as the Kalistos Chamber Orchestra and Meredith Monk’s Vocal Ensemble, written commissions for the Cambridge Philharmonic, Peabody Essex Museum, and the Maine International Film Festival, and collaborated with chamber groups such as Verdant Vibes and Hub New Music. Audrey also performs solo with her electroacoustic harp and loop pedal in environments as varied as rock clubs, galleries, house shows, studios, and recital halls.

Currently Audrey is in the process of completing her second album “Memory Banks” and workshopping her new multi-sensory performance project "Lavender."
