Hello from the other side

Wish I could steal that title (and voice) from Adele. I am emerging after the gut punching couple of years that were 2014 and 2015. I have new music in the works and a new band. Stay tuned for news…

Too-Much-Information Age

I am an artist. But I am not much of a self-promoter. And I am not much on social networking these days. I don't know where we're going with this all bragging, politicking, and gut spilling that we've become so…

Round Two

Finished the Vocal Tech I class and am beginning Vocal Tech II tomorrow. I'd like to be putting this money directly toward making the record. But this is a vital investment towards this record, all future records, all future gigs…

New, improved voice

Taking a vocal tech class from the Nashville Jazz Workshop. After only 1 class and 3 days of exercises my voice feels stronger and sounds clearer. Looking forward to trying out my "new voice" Wednesday evening at Two Old Hippies!
