Someone gave me this early Christmas present of ‘No Emotion’ live on Sunday Night with David Sanborn and some of killing-est musicians, I was in Funkrockster heave and singing with the ‘oh so understated’ Pop Staples. I’m sharingit with you, my early holiday present to you, Rock on!
Sunday night after 2 nearly sold out shows at Joe’s Pub, so many people asked me how I chose such an amazingly talented group of singers, musicians, dancer and poet? I could only answer ‘it happened because it was fate’ and I am so grateful to know each of you. My fate to meet each of you at different times and to have the opportunity to witness your artistry, as Joey says, your ‘magic’. Sharing the stage many times with most of you, exploring, playing and creating music. And yes, sooooo much love and laughter. Thank you for making me look and feel so good! Working on getting a tour bus or 2 and taking ‘Parallel Lives’ on the road Spring in 2016!
