Her lastest release “Transition Girl” features many styles from Blues, Jazz and Country to Rock, Gospel and Acoustic.  “When you’ve been loving music as long as I have, it’s pretty impossible to stick with one genre.  I am a product of all the greats who have inspired me and touched my heart from Patsy, Joni and Ella to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Hendrix and Coltrane.”
