NEW live music video shot at 25th Street Recording in Oakland!

 

I'm excited to share our live music video of "The Wizard and I" from Wicked! Christopher Hewitt​ and I recorded it as part of 25th Street Recording's 2nd Live Music Video Shoot Day which provides up-and-coming musicians with the opportunity to record a professional acoustic music video in a recording studio. If you know me, you know this is my favorite song and this video captures it beautifully and with the energy of a live performance. I hope you enjoy it and consider sharing it with your friends. The equipment was amazing: a 1909 Steinway Grand B piano and a Nuemann U47 vocal microphone!  I hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends.  Thank you for your continued support of live, local independent musicians!

VIDEO: A cappella rendition of Gershwin's "Summertime": 2006 NYC Show @Don't Tell Mama

 

Here's my a cappella arrangement of Gershwin's Summertime from my show at Don't Tell Mama in NYC. It's influenced by versions by Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald. It was 98 degrees that summer day in NYC and I was so happy that 70 people showed up on a Sunday night to see an unknown singer from San Francisco! Hoping to see 70 smiling faces on May 13 at Society Cabaret for my local show!

Full Length Live Video "One Moment in Time" - my tribute to the great Whitney Houston

 

I have loved "One Moment in Time" since I first heard it when it came out in the late 1980's.  It is such a gorgeous song about hope, perseverance, dedication, hard work and believing yourself to achieve your goals.  It brings me pure joy to sing it from my heart.  I hope you enjoy it and share it with your friends and provide them with an uplifting 5 minute music video break :-)
