Music is my life work and passion. I have loved music all my life and have been performing since I was in my early teens, professionally for the last 20 or so years. I sing and play (solo or with other musicians) in a variety of styles from jazz standards (Great American songbook; the repertoire of Tony Bennett, Sinatra, Diana Krall, etc.), to more contemporary songs (60's to the present) from smooth jazz, pop, rock, blues, funk, latin, Brazilian, New Age, Broadway, country, as well as traditional and contemporary folk songs including Irish and Spirituals, and some classical pieces. As a performer I hold myself and the musicians I work with to the highest professional standards and always put my heart and soul into everything I do.
