I am a 17 year old jazz vocalist with alot to offer the music industry. i have a c.d. out right now entitled the gypsy in my soul. i can be heard on many different radio channels around the world including australia and japan.


i am influenced by many different artists that are both living and dead. when i first started wanting to sing jazz i listened to the old greats like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughn and Carmen McCray and now i listen to people like Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Sarah Beralis, Sarah sleen. what sets me apart is that it is A tipical to find young people working in the genre of jazz.


Fascinating Rhythm

Written By: George and Ira Gershwin

Fascinating Rhythm,
You've got me on the go!
Fascinating Rhythm,
I'm all a-quiver.

When a mess you're making!
The neighbours want to know
Why I'm always shaking
Just like a flivver.

Each morning I get up with the sun -
Start a-hopping,
Never stopping -
To find at night no work has been done.

I know that
Once it didn't matter -
But now you're doing wrong;
When you start to patter
I'm so unhappy.

Won't you take a day off?
Decide to run along
Somewhere far away off -
And make it snappy!

Oh, how I long to be the man I used to be!
Fascinating rhythm,
On won't you stop picking on me?

I've Got a right to sing the blues

Written By: Harold Arlen

gotta right to sing the blues,
I gotta right to feel low down
I gotta right to hang around.
Down around the river.

A certain gal in this old town.
Keeps draggin’ my poor heart around.
All I see right for me,
Is… is misery.
I gotta right to sing the blues.
I gotta right to moan and sigh.
I gotta right to sit and cry.
Down around the river.

I know the deep blue sea
Will soon be callin’ me.
It must be love, say what you choose.
I gotta right to sing the blues.


almost every track on my c.d. has been played on a radio station. i am a member of radio direct that that lets me send out my c.d. to many international countries.

Set List

my tipical sets can run anywhere from half an hour to 70 min long. its done to a captive audiance who is there to listen. I perform covers so they all fall under a jazz catergory.
