Born June 13, 1986 on a Friday, Trumpet Grrrl’s interest in music began early. At the age of 10, Trumpet Grrrl started playing trumpet in her elementary school band. Her obsession was immediate; youth music ensembles, private lessons and summer camps where just the beginning of her classical music training. She would go on to perform at Carnegie Hall and with the National Symphony Orchestra through programs such as the NSO Fellowship. She then went to college and received a Bachelor's of Music in Trumpet Performance from the University of Maryland in 2008.
During her last months of college, Trumpet Grrrl formed the rock band La Coterie where she began to play keyboard, sing lead vocals and compose. After a fun and wild two years, she decided to leave La Coterie and a few months later officially started the project of Trumpet Grrrl. Here is when she started to teach herself to play trumpet and piano at the same time.
One fall day TG sat down to record some demo tracks – a month and half later she had an album. "The Basement Tracks" was released in October of 2010. The following January TG's song "Amaryllis" was featured in the Washington City Paper’s One Track Mind column. Trumpet G. then went on to release her sophomore album on January 17, 2012. The album; “It All Starts Here," was produced and recorded by Trumpet Grrrl.
