Notable --About a year ago, Putchinski decided to write, record and produce music full-time from a small recording studio in her house. She works with other singer/songwriters and on her own project, which she oddly named ellen cherry.

Quotable --"It was easier than trying to get people to spell my last name," Putchinski said. "That's why it's in lowercase - it's not supposed to be anybody specifically."
