ABOUT

Seeking musicians that enjoy a wide range of music to play together for fun (and profit!) I am a lead vocalist but I love to sing harmony and would like to find others that can sing and harmonize to trade lead and backup vocals. I am a "baby boomer" with decades of playing and gigging experience. I attended Berklee College of Music (many moons ago) and fronted many bands, including all-women bands, one of which was featured in the documentary, "The Women Who Rocked Boston". I have sung and played all kinds of music, including jazz, blues, punk/funk, R&B, pop, bluegrass, country(ish), hard rock, originals, covers, GB, you name it. I have also played keyboards for the Sufi Dances for Universal Peace, sung in gospel and church choirs, a Buddhist choir in Hawaii, and bhajans and kirtans in India. I love all music!
