She draws strength from her experiences and exposes the raw emotions of her soul through her songs. "Songwriting has always been a natural process for me," she reveals. Cherish began singing and playing the piano at age seven and playing bass and guitar since age 13.
Early on Cherish landed a multi-album deal with major label RCA/BMG and publishing powerhouse Warner-Chappell. This partnership enabled her to hone her instinctual gift for songwriting. Since then, she has written six successful records and has recorded and toured nationally with many different bands. Her repertoire includes three albums as lead singer with the Los Angeles based rock band the Painkillers, as well as her own solo record "Fallen Awake" (distributed in Europe on XYZ Records). Her music has been used in TV and film soundtracks like "The Crow" and she has written and jammed professionally with lots of different artists including playing lead guitar for Cyndi Lauper.
