My taste in music is quite eclectic. I have a passion for and favour songs from the Great American songbook, Jazz standards, Swing, Big Band and Blues, but I am equally 'at home' singing songs from other genres such as Popular Music, Country ( new/rock ) and those from Musical Theatre. The music & arrangements of Eva Cassidy & Norah Jones are particular favourites.
I perform as a Solo artist, using 'background' music but other options are with:
An acoustic jazz guitarist
A keyboard player
A keyboard player & drums
A keyboard player, sax & drums
A 6 piece band (keys, guitar, 2 saxes, base guitar & drums)
I have studied piano and have taught myself to play the Guitar and the Ukulele.
Musicality, it seems, runs in the family (3rd generation). My daughter Krys is a singer/songwriter and son James is a composer who plays guitar and piano. James' piano playing is featured on my 40s cd in the song made famous by Vera Lynn "Yours".
