Her second album MYTHS & FABLES won a performance grant from the Artist Foundation, and her third, AMERICAN SAMPLER, placed in the top 10 in the iTunes Great American Songbook category its first week in release and won Best Cabaret Album in the Independent Music Awards (where she was recently a nominee in the Spoken Word category)
