ABOUT

Let's JAM NOW!!
After this extended isolation and idle time, I have taken my talents to a new level. Give a listen to my stuff on the "CLOUD of Sound" /mojo-handler/estimated and if you are impressed, give me a shout.
My vocals are my main thing but I like to play with groups with others who are also good front folks, but can handle tight harmonies with me.
Keyboards is always a big part for me, too. And I also play rhythm guitar well.
I welcome players with eclectic tastes who know how to improvise, or at least can keep up with unexpected twists and turns that imaginative jamming can create. DEAD HEADS STRONGLY ENCOURAGED!!!
Now that things are looking hopeful again, I can't wait to play with others again. I miss that interaction SO MUCH! I love to bring my guitar and buskers' amp outdoors and strike up impromptu jams whenever possible.
***IMPORTANT: I do not own a car (by choice) and I live in East Lakeview.That means if rehearsals are far away it probably won't' work out.
*****Until I am vaccinated, I will wear a mask when rehearsing in a closed space and expect that to be required of all in the room.

The greatest compliment I ever got was that I sound like a black woman when i sing!
