I hail from a pretty amazing musical family. Everybody sings, plays musical instruments and has wonderful harmony (when we're all getting along). My mom and dad used to love listening to all types of jazz along with Frank Sinatra and The Glenn Miller Orchestra, The Andrew Sisters and Louis and Ella. The rest of my family was blasting soul and R&B along with Joni Mitchell, Earth, Wind and Fire and Creedence and the Stones. Music was pretty much playing all the time.
A few years back I decided to enter the Today Show's Superstar Contest It was their version of American Idol and I was one of the finalists. I caught the attention of legendary producer Nile Rodgers (who wrote We Are Family and founded the band CHIC and produced Madonna and David Bowie and Diana Ross, to name a few). We made my first jazz record together. I then sang with Diana Ross on a collaboration of her greatest hits.
Since then I have been writing and gigging and putting out my own music. I am proud to say I work with the best cats in the biz. Thanks for being a fan of my music. it's always a total blast. See you at the gig!
