I am an experienced (8 years) and highly professional jazz/r&b/soul/blues vocalist. I have a wide variety of music that I cover including my own originals. I perform with either a LIVE band.
I witnessed a performance that I would be eternally greatful to had been present. I missed seeing great live performances by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Astrud Jobin, and Nancy Wilson, but I intensely enjoyed Stephanie Sallie. I have no doubt in my mind that her name will go down in history for being a great artist.

Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
I put together a sultry, captivating show which will engage the audience member and keep them on the edge of their seat ;)
I am somewhat of a chameleon when it comes to performing LIVE music. I have done jazz, blues, soul, and lots of R&B shows..a little classic rock as well. My most requested is my jazz set. I cover Julie London, Billie Holiday, Etta James, sarah Vaughan and much more. My appearance is comparative to that of the late Etta James. I have been singing for about 8 years now. I have opened for such national acts as: The Ohio Players, Maze and Frankie Beverly, and R&B artists Tank &Avant. I've performed for crowds as large as 5,000 people, to intimate settings such as lounge or dinner events. When booking me, you can rest assured that you will have a professional and successful event with only the absolute best in LIVE entertainment. Choose anywhere from a pianist and vocals to a full band of 5. Whatever you decide, satisfaction is guaranteed.
