Why I love Movies.

18th February 2014 | 0 Comments

Someone asked me why I am so passionate about film. I don’t mean to sound dramatic but this is my truth and my relationship with the movies: A great movie will transform you just by experiencing its glory and taking the ride. A movie’s glory is the way in which all of its elements make [...]


Performing for the Older Crowd

13th February 2014 | 0 Comments

I had an interesting gig yesterday. I was hired to sing at a “retirement community” in the suburbs. Cast aside all of your normal visuals of a nursing home. This was a 38-acre compound that offers five levels of care (independent homes to full care nursing) a “town square, shops, library and a performance space [...]


Much Ado

Big day for me! If you know me, then you know how much I hate making a fuss. But today is a fussy day: video shoot, photo shoot, filmed interviews of me talking about me. It’s all me, me, me… Yikes! But I reckon that’s what it will take to get this showboat up and [...]

My Nina Simone Tribute is tonight. It’s finally here. All of the weeks of preparation all come to fruition in roughly five hours.

I’m reeling from a terrific rehearsal with The Shivers for our upcoming Nina Simone Tribute and I am so very excited.

A Wonderful Man has Died.

17th April 2012 | 0 Comments

I am sad today. A very dear man died over the weekend. He was a friend to the world of classical music, he was a reknowned expert and dealer of rare antique violins (Stradivarians & Guarneris) and stringed instruments. He loved life. He loved rock n roll. He loved my singing. We had great affection [...]

Mushiness alert: this post contains expressions of such happiness and gratitude that they may make you puke. But I’m just too happy to give a damn!

Weddings are very special because they involve families, and like individuals, every family has its own unique story and traditions that are present or should be present at every wedding celebration. It is important to include as many of these activities as possible during the reception because it involves all of the generations present. If [...]
