From the Artist
Why jazz? "Because when I hear it, I feel like I have velvet in my veins. It's visceral. If I walk into a shop and unexpectedly hear some Miles Davis, it can pull me away from whatever thought bubble I've been in and pull me right into the song. I want to have that sort of an effect on people. To pull them into an intimate moment, connect them with a story, thought, or emotion, and ultimately bring them joy. As a performer I want to make an audience feel comfortable, and drop all pretentions. A great singer can take people soaring, not necessarily by swooping up and down the scales, but by tapping into themselves, and sharing what is found there. That is what I strive for as a vocalist and as a performer. Jazz offers me a framework to build this upon, and I love it. Pure and simple."
