Brawler – A new kind of song

This September I am releasing a new EP called "Hot Damn Romance". It contains five songs, all of which I recorded in Toronto at the beginning of June. The songs are all originals, but they were written at different times. One of the tracks, "Brawler", is the oldest. In fact, it was part of the same stream of inspiration that created all the songs on my first album, "Songs...

Hot Damn Romance- the EP

I am excited to announce that there is new music almost ready to release. This year I released some songs as singles, and now there is an EP of five more songs that will come out in September. These tracks are special because they feature the incredible skills of some very fine musicians from Toronto. Producer Bryant Didier of BMusique Studios is a friend of a very good friend of mine,...

I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7EqYi5ve0U I put this cover together on a whim this month because it's a fun jazzy tune to sing, and I have a lot to sing about.  This version features Marc Rivest on guitar. 2018 has been a very exciting year musically, with my first fight scene music video (Molasses), a trip to Italy to perform live jazz, and new music and collaborators in the mix. This is a way of saying thank you to all...

Here I Go Again

Jazz is such a large umbrella term for music. You can find the French gypsy style of Django Reinhardt, the New Orleans trumpet, melodic jazz guitar, meditative midnight sax, and even the club pumping style of Electro Swing. One of the well established sub genres of jazz is Brazilian jazz, and bossa nova in particular. "The Girl From Ipanema" is probably the most well known song from this tradition. When I was...

They Say (Lyrics)

This time I said I’m going to keep my cool Not going to lose my head Not going to play the fool And that four letter word I will not speak The one that starts with “L” And ends with “E” Chorus: But everywhere I go People seem to know Just what I’m not speaking of And they say…. They say “You must be in love” Stopped by a café One Saturday afternoon I had a smile on my face I was humming a tune And the barista said As she poured my...

New album release

It's been a long journey, but I am thrilled to be releasing my second album, "Borderless Sky". A project like this is always intensely personal, but it also involves many other people along the way to bringing it into being. There are 8 tracks, ranging from the romantic to the lively and humorous. Songs like "They Say" and "Traces of You" are classic jazz, and feature piano and trumpet, recalling the style of Louis Armstrong...

Georgia on my mind…

Well, it's been a long journey with a lot of unexpected delays, but my second album is almost ready to release. It will be called "Borderless Sky" and includes a mix of all original songs, from vintage jazz to a few tracks with a more folk or country twist.  This album also includes one of my favorite songs of any I've written.  It's called "Back Country Blues".  The first line is:  There's a summer...

Notebooks everywhere

                    I have notebooks everywhere.  There is one I carry in my bag as I am out doing my errands.  Another sits on my work desk.  Still others lurk on the shelves of another room, and there is one beside my bed. Why all this paper in the digital age? It's partly habit.  I kept a diary for years.  Something about the pen moving across paper, kept in a beautiful binding, was very attractive to me.  I...

Voodoo Magic: Story of a Shoot

I just released the music video for my song “Voodoo Magic Man”, and I can’t quite believe we pulled it off. Getting to the finished product was a long series of twists, uncertainties and last minute crises. Somehow it all came together and everything found its place. You could say it was luck …or maybe a bit of magic. It all started about a month ago when I had coffee with my friend and filming...

Smile when your heart is breaking

One of my favorite songs is Nat King Cole’s version of “Smile”. I first heard it as a little girl, and it made a big impression. It wasn’t until I was much older that I learned about the singer’s life. The poor son of a butcher turned Baptist minister, his musical career was set against the racism of mid century America as the black civil rights movement was taking off. Of course, Nat wasn’t the...
