My first feature CD, Travelin' Woman, was released in December 2005 on the Bessie Blue label. Travelin' Woman is marketed through CDBaby.com and through my website, travelinwoman.com. Both sites feature audio clips. Travelin' Woman is also being readied for digital distribution.

My second album, an all-acoustic set of up-tempo mountain gospel interpreted by my blues-oriented musicians, was released in April 2007.



I ama commercial airline pilot in my professional life, with a 29 year career flying FedEx jets to every corner of the globe. As such, my music has been influenced by themes of out-of-the-way places, living from a suitcase, being away from home, and life on the road.

I have been singing and playing guitar since my teens, and dabble a bit with the fiddle, banjo and keyboard.

I have had the great fortune to be associated with, and mentored by, some of the top names in blues/rock music. My songs and style have been influenced by such talented women as Maria Muldaur, Rory Block, Sandy Carroll and Ruthie Foster.
