I’m a ‘story singer’ and a ‘song poet’. I’ve five albums including three with guitar-based jass trio The Fondue Set. I’ve vocal coached and taught songwriting for over 18 years and still love it. Mike Alexander said I have “a voice that imagination created”. Fiona Talron said was “mesmerizing” “an angel on E” at Hotel DeBrett last night.
