Instrument(s): vocals, guitar.

Teachers and/or influences? Rosemary Clooney, Jo Stafford, Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughan.

Your sound and approach to music: My approach is that western swing is the same music as big band swing, but with fiddles and steel rather than trumpets and saxophones.

Anecdote from the road: I was once chased by a chain wielding dwarf in the Reeperbahn in Hamburg.
