Vocals and instrumental, a fusion of modern jazz, R&B, pop, world and folk influences - Did I leave anything out?
Spent my formative years France - spoke French before I spoke English and to this I attribute my vocal tone & sardonic sense of humor. My mom introduced me to jazz at early age and later in D.C. we lived right up the street from Charlie Bird's jazz club and early on I saw some great performers there - Early in my career I had the good fortune to work with Dave Holland, Gary Peacock, Cleveland Eaton and Morris Jennings ( of the Ramsey Lewis Trio). These experiences influenced my direction as well as the great singer-songwriters like Laura Nyro, Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen..
I use a lot of counter melodies and poly rythyms in the music - a challenge for the listener who is often looking for a hook to hang his hat on - hooks can be very gratifying - sometimes hooks just hang you up - my experience is that as the ear develops so does the soul, the mind and the heart.
