NOTEWORTHY HIGHLIGHTS ON THE VANCOUVER LOCAL SCENE
DUO, TRIO & BEYOND...

Her scintillating piano styles, B3 Organ, and a mystique of smoky, sultry vocals generate a delicious potpourri: From the nostalgia of Jazz Piano, to Funky B3 Organ, a tasty compliment to any club/event.

   Enchanting and sensitive pianist / composer / vocalist is a talent to be heard. Her warm, smoky, naivety in sexy vocals – judiciously interspersed between piano solos – beguile the listener.
