I'm an Oakland jazz salsa singer-songwriter, fluent in a few languages thanks to my itinerant childhood. Since 2004 I've done more than a dozen studio recordings for my own & other bands. In 2010, I sang on the Grammy-nominated Bien! Bien! In 2011, I made a fan-funded CD, and in 2012 my singing/songwriting was on Pacific Mambo Orchestra's debut CD. In 2013, we won a Grammy!

The Singer’s Survival Guide: 12 Ways to Save Your Voice

After the gig, you never see a sax player toss his $5000 instrument on the ground and let it get kicked around by the sound man a few times before throwing it into a garbage bag and dragging it to the car. Gigging singers often treat their instrument like it’s a $5 kazoo. Broadway singers...
Thank you, KRTU San Antonio!

Thank you, KRTU San Antonio!

Just a note of thanks to KRTU, the jazz radio station in San Antonio, Texas. Multiple DJs, including Katchie Cartwright and Carl Stewart, have played songs from all three of my full-length albums — and I think I’m forgetting another DJ who played Calling You.
