"I come from a very gifted musical family. My mom was an amazing pianist.She never took a lesson, she played by ear..She would hear something on the radio, and if it struck her fancy, she would sit down and write notes to herself and start to play. I don't know what she wrote down, to help her memorize things, because she didn't read music!! All I know is that by the end of the day, she had the song down perfect and she would play it for my brothers and my sister and myself..Music has always been a part of my life.I am excited to play out again, to connect with people on that one on one level. My mom had a lot of wonderful caregivers in her life and at the end of it...she was surrounded by love.To me, music is just connects people to each other...Strangers become friends through the connection of music and lyrics that strike a chord in the listener from the creator of the music....There is something SOOOO magical about that and so I'm excited to be a part of that again."
