New Jersey Stage: At the age of 18, as a Vocal Music Education major at Colorado State University, she lost her remaining hearing as a result of the connective tissues disorder, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and quit music. With the aid of muscle memory, visual tuners, and extensive practice, however, Harvey learned how to produce the correct pitches when singing. She began to perform in clubs and lounges in Denver and even recorded three jazz albums.
