Genevieve

A versatile and mesmerizing entertainer who has performed in places as diverse as the South African bush, the White House, and Dodger Stadium, Genevieve started her musical career as a child, sitting on the curb in front of her house and entertaining the neighborhood with her renditions of Disney songs. She grew up on stage, playing leads in musical theatre productions and singing in bands in her teens, and then moving on to off-Broadway shows. After a short stint in NYC, she headed west to the warmer weather of Los Angeles, where she started her own label and began a very busy career as a touring singer/songwriter.

With two cds, an EP, and several national tours under her belt, she hit a crossroads with music and decided she needed to take a break to pursue her other passion in life - wildlife conservation. She packed up her life and moved across the world, and for the last 8 years, she's worked in conservation in South Africa, lending her considerable writing, photography, and marketing skills to well-known NGOs and spending days in the field observing and researching animals like black rhino and meerkats. While she continued to write, record, and perform when possible, she essentially put her touring career on hold while she worked to 'save the planet.'

Now back in the US, she is busy returning to her music roots, writing and recording new songs while also working on wildlife- and conservation-oriented children's books (and accompanying soundtracks). Keep an eye out for a lot of new projects from this feisty fireball.
