Reconnecting to Joy & My First Podcast Interview!

Reconnecting to Joy & My First Podcast Interview!

Since May, I've traveled to 22 cities and three countries with the 80s crew. I’m extremely grateful for the gigs (the Lost 80s & Freestyle bands are the best!) But more importantly, I’m grateful for the fans who show up to them. For now, I'm so excited to be home. It feels like it’s been forever since I've been in one place for more than a few precious days!

As the quiet of winter opens up some time and headspace to work on my Living A Vocal Life eCourse and Podcast, I’ll continue to keep you posted here.

The DIY Approach to Branding & Website Design

If you’re a DIY entrepreneur like me who wears many hats in your business - you know what a relief it is when you find like-minded folk who can help you do what you do and do it even better.

I was drawn to both of them because of the very REAL way that they market their courses. No hype. Authentically themselves. Great writers. Plus their courses are well organized and beautifully presented.

If you'd like to create a website or business that reflects who you are and what you care about - check out these two women and their courses. I highly recommend them!

Who knew winter would turn out to be my favorite season last year? Nestled in my home office in Portland OR, I got to immerse myself in learning and creating - two of my favorite things. The result? This website. Why? Because I needed a home for  “Living A Vocal Life” — an eCourse I’m creating that integrates over 30 years of my experience in performing, teaching, and coaching to help singers who want to create a sustainable LIFE in music.
