Hello to everybody who has taken the time to check this out. Thank you for affording me the opportunity to share my story.
Coming from a family of musicians, I could not deny the burn in my heart to try my hand at the whole music thing.
I started at the age of 20 in a pop dance band at a horrific 4 O'clock club, where big 'muscle men' bouncers threw people out on their heads...serious! Then I got saved, literally, and quit that band, and that bar! I got married to a jazz piano player who introduced me to a whole new world of sound, recording, and writing!I began playing the jazz club scene for a few years in the U.S., and then landed a gig in Japan that lasted for seven years! Those were some of the best and most difficult years of my life! I started writing a LOT, which then led to the studio end of things where I found my passion was just that...recording. I love to perform live but the thrill of getting behind a great mic with a good producer/engineer in the studio with a great song in your pocket is somewhat of a dream.
I have to say my BEST and most rewarding musical years were spent ministering musically at Spanish River Church in Boca Raton, Florida, where I was afforded the privilege of writing and performing many songs that ministered in step with the sermon message. Apart from salvation found in Christ, I think the gift of music is one of the greatest blessings that God has given us as we dwell on His earth.
I sincerely pray you enjoy my contribution, I am humbled that you took the time to visit, and I thank you so very much.
P.S. All the Christmas songs are from a project I did entitled 'This Christmas' which is a compilation of Christmas recordings I've performed on over the years for various productions/producers.It received airplay on Love 94 in '08 and '09. Thank you Stu Grant!
