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'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!!
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.
Ever the journalist, I'm also doing some freelance writing for the Jazz in M.E.E. Magazine. My first piece, in the current issue, is a critique of the latest project from guitarist Rob Tardik. I also just did a great interview with legendary jazz vocalist Dianne Reeves for the spring issue. I was really excited about that! i'll keep you posted on when it'll be published.
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.
Then there's my 'other' project. It's a single that I plan to release next spring called "They Said it was Gonna Rain". It has a jazz-blues vibe with the Sharon Rae North 'stank' on it. It's definitely a song for 'grown' folks. We've done a scratch vocal of it to lock in the melody and so far I love it. I can't wait for you to hear the finished product.
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!
