I met Susan shortly after I moved to Berkeley, California after answering her voice lessons ad. It was the start of many musical adventures we would share: singing in a cappella ensembles and Motown bands, co-leading workshops for singers, and recently, writing and arranging songs. Susan is a smart, witty, and insightful singer/songwriter, a talented arranger, and an awesome teacher. She is also the most disciplined person I know, as well as a networking Goddess. Susan says about I Forgot I Was Strong: "I had two surgeries in one year that left me feeling pretty shaky. I was so relieved when my strength and spirit returned that this song poured out of me."
I met Lea through a colleague and my life has never been the same. She is hands down one of the most dynamic and enthusiastic people I know. Originally from Long Island, New York, she has been teaching voice for kids and adults for over 15 years, lived in Paris for 12 years and performed throughout Europe. Classically trained, Lea is a powerful jazz vocalist, author and songwriter. Her song, Open Sea, is used as a vocal training tool. ("Breathe girl! Sustain that note!") I fell in love with the tune and was thrilled that Lea gave me permission to record it. Take a voice lesson or class with Lea. Believe me, you won't forget it!
