I've been singing and playing for many decades, in almost every venue, including concert halls, colleges, coffee houses, nursing homes and other institutions, and more.
My voice has a three-octave range, so I can sing soprano and alto with equal ease. While I'm quite comfortable as a lead singer, I also enjoy supporting other lead singers with harmony backups as I have an excellent ear for harmony.
My award-winning songs are in the pop-folk-theatrical vein. One of my goals is to record an album. But I'd also like to play in a group, large or small, because the creativity from other skilled musicians always makes music better. I'm open to doing covers as well as originals (by me or you).
My time is fairly flexible, so I'm available to rehearse several days and evenings a week, as well as gig. I wouldn't mind gigging every week--not in a dive or bar, but in classy places that appreciate good music: resorts, hotels, special functions, that sort of thing.
