Singer * Songwriter * Guitarist * Pianist


"I like to describe PJ as the female James Taylor," Jess - Coal Yard, York, SC

The music has been described as acoustic...eclectic...refreshingly memorable, meaningful and fun. It's thought-provoking, emotion-evoking, genre-bending and just-got-to-sing-along kind of tunes.

PJ embodies the best of new folk music in her singing, songwriting, and finger-picking styles. She is an accomplished musician and songwriter who has a keen ear for great new music regardless of genre. Above all else, she is an entertainer. With her easy and engaging stage presence, she has a way of reaching out and pulling an audience in, one person at a time. PJ is a member of BMI.

I am honored to be a part of the Trio 2020 project, a collaboration of authors, artists, and songwriters. I find myself in such amazing company that I have to pinch myself. I had the opportunity to compose songs for two wonderful books, and am looking foward to touring with these fine folks over the next year. Check out the complete list of creative individuals and see and hear their works here: Watch for upcoming events in your area.
