I am eternally grateful that I get to make the art -- and create the imagery! -- that I want to see in the world. At the moment, there's plenty of auditions and callbacks and gigs (oh, my!) and time must be spent honing all the tools in the proverbial toolbox (voice lessons, piano lessons, on camera acting lessons, etc) As for what I'm making: there's a new song cycle in the works, I'm developing a jazz musical (The Billie Holiday Project) and I've finally started Georgette, the twang-drenched, feminist, country & western band of my dreams.
Click here for what I'm up to in February -- and here's a heads up for what's happening in April.
- Uncharted: Georgette, featuring Lee Ann Westover and Queen Esther -- April 9th, 8pm. Country comes to the Village. Yes, there will be a house concert deep in the heart of Billyburg in late March and yes, we'll get to you via Concert Window if you can't get to us. We're on Facebook! For tickets, click here.
- Queen Esther Sings Billie Holiday: The Rare Sides at Minton's Harlem -- every Tuesday in April. With direction from Talvin Wilks and music direction from Jeremy Bacon, a different program will be presented each evening -- including an abbreviated version of The Billie Holiday Project -- to illuminate unexplored facets of Lady Day.
