I have performed many popular songs-- at high school dances and country fairs with the all girl group the Sonnelles, as a troubador in Colonial Williamsburg, at coffee houses and English pubs, in dance halls, clubs, and concerts with the Heartbeats, and long standing solo stints at hotel and restaurant bars. But the voice deep within me always emerged to write the authentic songs of my heart. Quotes from Fans: 'I listened to your CD a couple of times and was very impressed.
