They Call Me Mellow Yellow, what do they call you?
Mellow Yellow was always one of my favorite songs ever since I was a younger human listening to music. So naturally when we (and I mean Laurent Marode and myself) were working on our album Long After Midnight, we thought it would be fun to add this song to our […]
I Am In Love…In Paris
Yes, I am in love…I have only been with him once but that was enough for me. The way he looked at my face in the mirror while gently running his hands through my hair gave me chills. His face so close to mine as he asked me a multitude […]
Montmartre in winter. I dream of Paris in the snow.
Ah, beautiful Montmartre in winter, this picture is close to where we will be living. Only 12 more days before we depart on our journey, I can’t believe the time has flown by so quickly. Am I prepared to leave in just 12 days? So much to do it sometimes […]

Source: pinterest.com via Rachel on Pinterest I remember sending these kind of postcards when I was little. The first time I went to Disneyland was in 1962 and it was a wonderous place to be. Full of such fantasy, dreams and joy I could hardly believe that a place like […]
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? That is more important than all the tea in China…okay, maybe not all the tea in […]
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 […]
