I have just been accepted as a voting member of The Recording Academy, the organization that presents the Grammy's. I hope to have my fourth CD, Destiny: Moment of Jazz nominated in the 57th Annual Grammy Awards. (hey, a girl can dream!!)
Before The Voice airs on television a contestant must go through rounds of auditions. In Washington DC I sat with many new friends, and tried to go from the fourth round to the fifth. After one more song, I was eliminated and my journey came to an end. It's been a fun, crazy...wouldn't change it for the world 'ride'. I congratulate and root for my new friends as they continue their journey to the live taping in LA before meeting the four celebrity judges.
I have been on the play list of hundreds of terrestrial radio stations worldwide, as well as internet stations Pandora, Live365 Radio, AOL Radio, Spotify, M3Radio, Taintradio, Soundcloud, ReverbNation and CDBaby.
I am presented on the Europe Jazz Network. EJN is a Europe-wide association of producers, presenters and supporting organizations who specialize in creative music, contemporary jazz and improvised music created from a distinctly European perspective. Major airplay in Amsterdam and Hamburg.
My European Work Permit Application is in process and under review, International Jazz Festivals here we come!"
