  • Born in Nashville, living in Japan from the age of two as part of an International Community, this slide guitar legend grew up listening to a combination of New Orleans R & B, European Classical, Grand Ole Opry, Japanese Shamisen, Indian Citar, and much more of what is now called "World Music".

  • Her high energy Rhythm & Blues, along with Middle Eastern laments, Indian, Pakistani & West African influences and a capella Gospel numbers all drive her amazing Slide Guitar and Vocal Acrobatics to make for a dynamic show. Anecdotes & stories from her forty-some years in the business add warmth and humour to her unforgettable performances.

    Thank you all for your contributions to my go fund me campaign.
    I had the freedom to work on my autobiography every day
    during July & August 2015.
    So far, I have gotten as far as 1970 and continuing on school breaks,
    hope to complete a final draft during July and August 2018.
    I couldn't do this without all of you.
    Thank you thank you thank you!
