I moved to Seattle from Chicago in 2003.
When I lived in Chicago, I wrote songs and performed in local venues with Chicago-area musicians.
When I arrived in Seattle, I volunteered in a local middle school during the day and enjoyed playing at the city's open mics at night. I eventually became a teacher in the Seattle School District.
I went to an open mic at a local jazz club in downtown Seattle and really enjoyed singing with a jazz trio. I've been pursuing that for a while now and play at Egan's, a club in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood.
I made the CD, Any Kind of Fool She Wants, with these wonderful Seattle-based musicians:
Darin Clendenin - Piano
Clipper Anderson - Bass
Mark Ivester - Drums
Alexey Nikolaev - Saxophones
Jeff Busch - Percussion
Christopher Woitach - Steel Guitar
I'll be playing selections from the CD at Egan's Ballard Jamhouse on Friday, March 24th at 7pm
