I love singing songs from the American Songbook—musical treasures that are enduring, timeless and cross-generational.

When the COVID-19 pandemic upended the world, I finally got serious about my craft. There were songs I had to sing. 

Times Like These began as a “pandemic project” with my vocal coach, John Proulx, singer, pianist, composer, recording artist, arranger, and instructor. I met John through JazzVoice.com, an online vocal jazz educational community founded by Alexis Cole. It was truly a divine nudge that led me to join JazzVoice.com. Prior to becoming a member of the JazzVoice.com community, I had been a serial vocal and trumpet student floating from one vocal and music coach or workshop to the next, doing the “hokey pokey” with my singing, trumpet, and piano lessons. I had dabbled at my musicianship most of my life, taking a course here and there, mostly singing to my bathroom walls—and then came COVID. ​ When the COVID-19 pandemic upended the world, I finally got serious about my craft. There were songs I had to sing.  ​ I had my first lesson with John on August 17, 2020 and a year later on August 13, 2021, we were in Paul Tavenner’s Big City Recording Studio recording an album with two of John’s musical mentors, jazz legends Chuck Berghofer (bass) and Joe LaBarbera (drums). It was a blessing to record with John, Chuck, Joe, and Paul. Featuring songs about endings and beginnings, this album is meant for Times Like These.
