Welcome!! Thanks for stopping by to browse my website! My music is one of the most important aspects of my life and I'm so happy to be able to share it with you.
This just in: I recently started a Go Fund Me campaign to support production of my next studio project. I'm hoping to raise enough to at least get started by mid-to-late summer 2014. I'm really excited because I'll have award-winning national keyboardist, Bob Baldwin, on a few songs. So, if you can spare a few dollars, click on the Go Fund Me widget above and help me make this happen.
I'll be performing at the Ohio State Fair 2014 in Columbus on July 25. I'm on the Main Street Stage at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. I'll also be doing a :30 minute jazz set at the Fine Arts Center at around 2 p.m. And, I'm also preparing to schedule my return visit to tne Metropolitan Room in NYC. My inaugural show there was fabulous, (if I do say so myself), and I've been invited back. Summer 2014 is looking good!!
I'll wrap up summer with a return performance at The Metropolitan Room in NYC. I'll be there on September 13 at 11:30 p.m. for a jazz/cabaret performance. If you happen to be in the Big Apple that evening, come down and check out the show. It's going to be really nice…I promise.
Ever the journalist, I'm also doing some freelance writing for the Jazz in M.E.E. Magazine. My first piece was a critique of the latest project from guitarist Rob Tardik. In the current, which came out in April, I have an article from my in-depth interview with legendary jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves. I was really excited about that! In the upcoming issue I have reviews of projects by saxophonist/vocalist Marqueal Jordan and guitarist Jay Gore.
The thumbnail is the cover for my "Gee Baby" cd. It contains some of the most beautiful songs and standards ever written. Click on 'merchandise' at the top of the page to order yours today. It's also available digitally on iTunes, Spotify, etc. Check out some of the reviews it's been getting that are posted on the site.
Well, my six night cabaret show "Something Wonderful: The Music of Rodgers and Hammerstein" was absolutely fantastic. Shout out to CenterStage in Richmond, Virginia, those who attended the shows and all of the media outlets where we received coverage and promotional opportunities.
So, I have a lot going on that's keeping me busy and challenging me vocally; all of which helps me grow as a musician and as an entertainer. Please know that I really appreciate the support I get from you. It's always nice to know that my work is enjoyed and appreciated by others.
Now, go on and take a look around and please make sure you click on the titles at the top of each page to maneuver around the site. Make sure you check out "Catch Me Here" to check out my calendar and find out where I'll be. Hopefully, you'll be there, too.
After your visit, please make sure to drop me a line and let me know what you think of the site...and the music!! I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
