(I leave Wonder Woman for Kitty).... The truth is Jonny Kat is lil ol me... Cordell Crockett! But I think I'm lots cooler than

A little about me:
i sing. play guitar. act. model. dance & bartend. i love 2 work out. i like nature. i like to help people.
i have been working for some time now on my own project called "One Band Army"
about my personal crusade to make a difference in our world.
i got a plaque from the American Red Cross
for HKK's fund raising efforts for Japan. I was very proud of that.
I have now done 5 charity shows & plan on doing a lot more..& continuing trying to make a difference.

I play music to make a difference & aim to touch peoples lives.
Hopefully music can help me bridge the gap to people globally..
about a peaceful world & that we need to take care of it
so it will be here for our children & our children's children.
Our world is finite..not infinite.. if we expend our resources & trash our oceans
& pollute our air..then what? Its not out of the question at the rate we are going & we must change our thinking.
Recycle. Reuse. Restore. Waste less. Give more to people who need our help..
& Realize..We are all in this life together. We all bleed red ~one love=music

Leah- bass, vox

Hi~My Name is Leah! I love to play bass & guitar & attempt to play anything & everything else!
Before playing music, I played soccer, softball, basketball & ran track. I was very good at sports & won many awards & thought I even wanted to play professionally but ~after stealing all of my parents records & blowing out a few sets of speakers, I knew that I had found my true passion in music. When I was 15, my mom took me to see Alice Cooper & Cheap Trick play live. I was amazed at their performances & said "I want to do that!" At the time, I had no musical talent what so ever & attempted to sing in a couple punk bands. Then, when I was 19, my friends band needed a bassist & asked if I played. I told them "of course I play bass!"~ then went straight to Guitar Center & bought a bass & amp. I faked my way through the audition & got in the band. From that day on, I just kept jamming with everyone I could. At some point I picked up a guitar & played & sang in a few bands. I love playing music & don't know what I would do with out it. I also like sparkly, colorful, magical things. Unicorns, toucans & cats are my favorite animals. I also ride a motorcycle & love to be outside & around trees. I just got my BS in Nutritional Science & am ready to reach out to the world in the most musical, magical & healthiest way possible!! Yay!
