As a solo artist, I’m a singer-songwriter working on a collection of songs to make into an album and share with the world. See my most recent recording of my songs here. You can find me singing songs out at some of my favorite open mics as a regular or featured songwriter in Charlotte, The Evening Muse, Comet Grill, Legion Brewing, just to name a few. I’m also a singer for hire. I sing with the Tosco Music Party house band.
Diana Wade, Bruce “BK” Keedy and I have been playing music together for a couple of years. Our love of old country, folk, bluegrass, southern gospel, country folk/rock brought us together. Sweetgrass Serenade’s big focus is on harmony; every song! BK is a rockin’ mandolin and guitar player, Diana picks beautifully and I have a blast with my ukulele. They’ve let me sneak in a few old jazz songs in too. A mandolin solo on “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore” is pretty sweet! We gig out regularly at Festivals, Farmers Markets, Retirement Homes, and Breweries. Thinking we’d be a good fit for wineries too. We like it all! We’re working on some holiday music now too. Having a party? Give us a shout!
Beauty and the blues
Keith Serpa and I teamed up a couple of years ago sharing our favorite songs. An exceptional blues and country rock guitar player, Keith’s grooves are energetically infectious. Pairing his raspy voice with my sweet clear voice, we bring our own spin on jazz, blues, country, pop/rock cover tunes, and love to sing our own songs as well. Videos are in the works! Here’s a taste of some of our tunes. We’ve had good runs at a few bars and restaurants, taking a little hiatus this summer, but are ready to get back out there to entertain y’all! From Eri Clapton, Beatles, Sam Cooke, Ella Fitzgerald, Bonnie Raitt and Ingrid Michelson, we’ve got a little something for everyone’s musical tastes!
