Auxerres Jazz Festival

Little is found about this festival in the small town of Auxerres, however, there is music in abundance. There is the scared music in Abbaye de Pontigny from Pentacostal Sunday through September. Then there is the venue I will be performing in The Catinallegra during the Winter Jazz Festival in […]

France Underwater?

I just returned from France where I performed and sang my little heart out for several CD release concerts for Long After Midnight. In case you haven’t heard, it the new album that I recorded in Paris about a year ago and now it’s out… but I digress, I seem […]

Headed to France

I will be leaving next Monday evening, returning to one of my favorite places on this beautiful earth. Paris, France. Visiting old friends and releasing my 2nd CD titled, Long After Midnight. I recorded it at Sextant Studios right before I left to return to my native soil. As I […]

Well, It goes from St. Louis…Route 66

Route 66, a dream come true to be riding the Mother Road, which I have not been on since…ah, well…I was a kid. Let’s just leave it at that, shall we? We depart the end of July and return to Northern Cal August 10th. Watch us on our journey down […]

Workshops!!!!

Workshops! Workshops! Workshop! Coming up at the Jazz School I will be giving a workshop on Stage Presence for Vocalists. You’ve got the voice, you’ve got the band, but do you have stage presence? ┬áThat is more important than all the tea in China…okay, maybe not all the tea in […]

Eddie Marshall

Last week the world lost an amazing and talented drummer, Mr. Eddie Marshall. The entire thing feels so very unreal to me. Last year I had the pleasure of working with him every Thursday afternoon, his insight into working with a singer and rhythm was amazing. Eddie was laid back […]
