I'm off on a new adventure here in South Florida. Right now, you can catch my act at Sand & Spurs Equestrian Park in Pompano, every day from 3:00 - 4:00, you'll hear me singing away while I clean my horse's stall and give him some hay. It's sort of where I started, singing to the horses on the hill at Peacock Hill Ranch in Los Angeles, and then suddenly I was singing with Big Bands to lovely humans, while horses passed by on the trails outside the window at Rancho Viva Cantina in Burbank. Life took another plot twist and if you want to read about it, you can click below on my blog. But I'm not as interested in the past as I am with the future, so follow along and keep me company as I discover new things here in South Florida. You can sign up below if you like. Thanks!
Follow my journey below.
I was born in the 50's and as soon as I could crawl, I crawled right to the long, sleek stereo unit my parents had in the living room - just the right height for me to lay down and listen to all the wonderful music coming out of those big, fabric covered speakers at the bottom. Big bands, little bands, jazz combos, R&B. That music, that energy, seeped into my bones, my blood and my soul.
I think I understood the words of those lyricists long before I even knew how to speak or what words even were. Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, George Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael. The List is long, but unfortunately, not endless. These men and women knew what words meant, and how to string them together like beautiful gemstones that could be worn a million different ways. The words stayed the same, but the meanings changed from vocalist to vocalist. Sinatra, Billie Holiday taught me to speak while I was learning my ABCs. I learned to love the words and the songs and the images they created in my mind. Who needed TV?
I can't believe how lucky I am. How grateful I am. And how intimidated I am to be able to sing with some of the best musicians in town. Musicians who have played in some of the best bands - big or little, ever. Ever.
I want to introduce all of them to you, so that you know what I am just starting to learn about them. How dedicated they are, to their instruments, to the music and to the other musicians they play with. They are truly amazing people who may never pass this way again.
