I was raised by a single Mother and my love of music came early in life. Mother worked as a waitress at a Honky Tonk and we heard many country bands as I grew up. Mom also loved Gospel, Big-Band and Blues music. My best audience was Grandma and I sang and danced to her for hours. So, from knee high I was always singing...it was in my blood you could say.
