Welcome to my website

Here you’ll have the opportunity to learn about my work as a singer and pianist, and visual artist.

I present a brief history of cabaret music – with its satire and political courage – as well as some tips for vocal care and singing.

You can listen to clips of some songs from my CD Cabaret Sauvignon, make purchases of music and art, and contact me for information about performances.

I consider song to be one of the most evocative of human expressions.  If you consider the image of a mother singing lullabies to her baby to soothe.  Of laborers, soldiers or prisoners pouring out rhythmic call and response chants to find strength to endure.  Of slaves creating songs to claim their humanity denied them by their masters.  Or of you and me singing to bring pleasure and beauty…

And isn’t visual art that music for our eyes?

“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you:  I am here to live out loud.”  Émile Zola

“If you walk you can dance.  If you talk, you can sing.”  Zimbabwe Proverb
