What is music to you? What does it give you?

Singing is the only medium where I forget who I am, leaving all inhibitions behind .

What is your music dream?

I never had a music dream.... I just sing and look no further from there

If you could change the world - what would you start with?


Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

I Write The Songs by Barry Manilow

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Tom Waits, Nina Simone

What inspires you to make music?

That's like asking me what inspires me to eat, drink water....

What is the message you want to send with your music?

That there's room for all of us in the music pond... I grew up in a time where radio stations and TV shows played all genres of music -- it opened our minds and hearts to so many beautiful artists and varieties of songs and music styles.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

Terrified.... it's why I haven't performed in 15 years....

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I know I sound like my "Mom" when she talked about music of the 80's and 90's when I was young... but music nowadays is boxed into looks vs talent. An album cover is more influential than the music it contains.... As an older singer and not 'fitting' the mold of todays' singers - I feel like the dust covered classical music vinyl section, way in the back of the store ?

What do you think of Drooble?

I'm new to it.... let's see....

What frustrates you most as a musician?

I'm not in the mood to rant and rave.... we can share grumpy tales over a cuppa Joe....

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes. We have some local theater we support

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I have no idea.... If I knew, my audience would be larger than it is....

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

The Innocence Mission, Valerie June, Michael Kiwanuka, Muddy Magnolias
