ABOUT

I am a Front Woman with over 35 years of experience. I'm a versatile music artist, meaning, I perform and record different genres. At present, I am a solo music act [meaning, I am considered a 'one woman band'] and I perform with professionally arranged music tracks? I would like to add a decent playing, seriously minded guitarist, someone who's a bit versatile and can play a few solos before, during and after the shows. If you would be interested in being a part of what I do as an artist. Please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

I work with what I like to call, a "Top 50" song list. I've worked this way for years, because I believe being overly prepared is always best. The following is a list of some of the songs I perform during my shows. Your guitar playing [and/or Keys ] would be a enhancement to the music tracks. Also, the music tracks that I perform to has been professionally recorded, with my backing vocals on them. So no backup singers are necessary, unless you would like to sing along. In short, your musical instrument would be used as a enhancement.
