'Only Jesus'
Everything I am is because of the Lord and I give all the glory to Him. The simple truth is God will take care of you. Take the leap of faith, ask Jesus into your heart, accept His gift of grace, trust and live for Him. Psalm 59:16 "But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble." I am a singer/songwriter playing for the sheer joy of it. I've been finding peace singing at my piano all my life. I'm happy to sing and play for my supper anytime. :)
Band/artist history
I've been playing music all of my life. I remember a sixth grade talent show. I was too young to realize I should be terrified. :) It would be many years before I would sing for myself in front of a crowd. Now I long for any opportunity, mainly to reach into the soul's of others through music. It is my greatest desire and greatest blessing beyond those I love.

Have you performed in front of an audience?
You can find me singing on the Christian Worship Hour. It is a Bible-based, traditional church service, which airs on cable TV, satellite and shortwave radio world-wide. Visit the website www.christianworshiphour.com for viewing details.
Your musical influences
I grew up listening to Lorrie Morgan, Anne Murray, later Trisha Yearwood, LeAnn Rimes. I also love groups such as the Eagles, Alabama, etc. I also have grown to respect and love the music of Carole King. I spend time studying her style in hopes of learning from the best. :)
What equipment do you use?
Yamaha and Alesis keyboards and my acoustic piano at home
Anything else?
When the music carries you beyond the day to day, it has truly been a gift. This is what I strive for and what inspires me. There's nothing like a beautiful, sunny day with the car windows down and the stereo blaring my favorite song - and singing along at the top of my lungs! God Bless You!
