For nearly a decade now I've been pursuing my career as a performing songwriter. In my past life, I was an elementary music teacher by day and a professional singer by night. I spent the last half of my college years studying the great American music style known as jazz. It's something that's near and dear to my heart and I want it to always be a part of me. Thus, my new jazz project. Eventually, I'd like to perform regularly in local jazz venues with a combo, but for now, I present my inaugural show at Opening Bell Coffee, which I will play solo. There will be selections from the Great American Songbook as well as a few popular classics, and perhaps an original composition or two. I'll also share some stories about my personal journey with the genre, as I think it reveals a lot about who I am as a person. I look forward to sharing this intimate evening with you.
