return to Artist Profile Playlist: Laree Cisco

When I was about seven or eight living in Newark, NJ, my grandmother and I took piano lesson every Saturday at a local music school. I'd over hear my piano teacher telling her and my mother that I had a "good ear" and that I "picked up things pretty fast."

In 1997 I started filling up books with words and poetry, and in 1999 I bought my first guitar. All that talk about being a "fast learner" and having a "good ear" came in handy. I was able to teach myself how to play guitar using only a guitar chords poster and Nirvana's Nevermind album. In 2005, with the help of some good friends who helped me get over any possible hints of stage fright, I got up on stage and did a set at my first open-mic which consisted of 3 originals and a Foo Fighters cover. Later the same year I played my first show as a featured act.

My name is Laree.

I am sincere.
