Must Go Sees & Listens

Sufjan Stevens
His CD Illinoise is just too lovely & brilliant & odd to miss - I can't stop listening!
Jef Aerosol
Jef Aerosol is a killer stencil artist in France and amazing folk/celtic musician (multi-instrumentalist) & singer - he's a dual threat. Anyone who adores rock icons a la Warhol (but better) popping up all over the streets of Paris, London and Chicago must check his work out!!!
Devotchka
A band I am just loving - their new CD is fab and the lead singer has vocals that just make you want to get your heart broken (or drink if it already is and swoon on a fainting couch).
Kamala Dolphin Kingsley
A painter who I've bought a lot of prints from and is a hoot to hang with, as well - gorgeous images with a freaky fairy-tale aura.

Influences

Chris Whitley Website
Chris was one of my main influences/inspirations & sadly, died of lung cancer in November 2005. My song "St. Christopher" on my CD Emergency Love is about & for him. Rest in Peace, Chris.

Musicians on my CD Flirting

Amy Denio - The Magnificent & oh so Amazing!
Amy is one of the best musicians/composers/planetary forces around (she's a member of The Tiptons - one of my fave bands). And, I'm so lucky to have her singing, playing accordian & sax on my new CD Flirting. You must check her out, if you don't know her work.
Tobi Stone - hottest & nicest Saxophonist in town
Tobi was nominated by Earshot Jazz as best new artist in 2005 and man is she one Seattle's hottest players, plus damn fine & nice, to boot. Plus, she graces both my CD's Emergency Love & Flirting with her great playing - she & Amy Denio on Baltimore Oriole are killer. Her current projects include: The Tiptons Sax Quartet, Melodia Jazz duo, Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra, and Reptet.
Jeff Busch - drummer/percussionist
Jeff is one of the consumate drummer/percussionists in Seattle. He plays on 3 of my tracks on Flirting and was a great creative force to work with. Groups he plays with: Jovino Santos Neto quinteto; Cuban jazz groups Rumba Abierta, and Tumbao led by pianist Julio Jauregui; and Cuban dance band Mango Son, led by Roberto Sanchez
Victor Janusz - Seattle's Ultimate Cocktails & Romance PianoMan & composer
If you want to return to the era of sophistication, romance & Martinis, go hear him at Salty's every Friday night at Alki. And, buy his truly luscious CD Cosmo Street (I sing a duet with him, "Guadalupe" - available on CD Baby) it was reviewed most positively in JazzImprov Magazine. It was Victor who suggested I start singing Hoagy's "Skylark" and inspired me to compose my own arrangement for the CD Flirting.

Must hear musicians I'm happy to hang with

Paul Rucker - award winning composer/musician/visual artist
Paul Rucker is one of the most talented and compelling composers and musicians I know. He is also an innovative and magical artist. To see all his great works def. check his website. And, buy his CD's!!!
The Tiptons
Amy Denio, Tobi Stone & Elizabeth Pupo-Walker are dynamite musicians I've worked with on stage in in the studio. They are all part of one of my favorite bands, The Tiptons - touring Europe and the US, don't miss them if they grace your town and def. buy their CD's!!

Mark Clem - Producer/Engineer for Flirting...

Soul Kitchen Studios - Mark Clem, recording engineer
Mark Clem is the great Houdini behind the headphones working his HD Pro-Tools magic for my 2 CD's Emergency love & Flirting... ~ go to Mark for a great recording experience and a great sounding project. He is also a kick-ass dj & remix-master - he remixed my song SkinDiving into a great dance-club tune.
