What is your favorite song to whistle or sing in the shower? Changes according to mood and what's in my head. Sometimes just a bass groove or some earworm picked up from the morning news on the radio. Some of those earworms are deadly! God help me.

If I weren't a jazz musician, I would be a: Zombie. I am a jazz musician. Whether I am making a living at it or not, whether I am doing it frequently or not.
My college major was Philosophy of Science, so perhaps I would be a philosopher, but that sounds so arrogant. We're all philosophers of a sort, in our own ways.
My goal is to be as authentically human as possible. So if I weren't a jazz musician I'd be simply a human being.
I love jazz because with it I found my true voice. I have always sung since I was a very small child in school and church. And there have been many genre that I have enjoyed including spiritual, folk, country, latin, soca and pop
I love jazz because with it I found my true voice. I have always sung since I was a very small child in school and church. And there have been many genre that I have enjoyed including spiritual, folk, country, latin, soca and pop. But nothing has touched my artistic sensiblities like JAZZ! Two years ago I moved to Sarasota, FL where I renewed my focus on my singing career and I was so impressed with the quality, quantity and generousity of talented jazz musicains in the Suncoast area. I soon partnered with piano legend Billy Marcus and his trio with Don Mopsick and Stephen Bucholtz. What a blast working with these guys and having them back me up on my first jaz album, Here's To You... which was just released on October 1st. I can't wait to see where the coming year brings me!
