Feeling a bit camera shy


About me? Born into a musical and music-loving family. Started piano lessons at 5 years of age, won a talent show singing “Ireland Must Be Heaven Cause My Mother Came From There” at 8 yrs of age (not bad for the only black kid in the school at the time). Enamored with folk songs along the way to a BA in Music Education, so decided to write and perform my own Became lead vocalist, and a contributing songwriter for one band in San Francisco, and later keyboardist for an afro-reggae band and a couple of reggae bands. Have performed as a one-woman show, the elegant/ethnic/electric/pop/rock/funk cabaret in San Francisco and Seattle. Contributed original music to plays and film shorts.

Utilized those harmony and orchestration classes to arrange songs that create a mini theatrical piece discussing love, politics, living from paycheck to paycheck, societal issues, dogs, metaphysical sensations. Create songs, ranging in style from folk to reggae to pop (rock, ballad, blues), to new age.
