She released her debut CD, Singer at Work (available on CD Baby) in 2012, followed by If We Only Have Love (available on iTunes) in 2014. Cabaret superstar, Marilyn Maye said, “Her great love for the art of singing comes through beautifully. She delivers the lyric with understanding, honesty and caring.”
“ ‘Singer at Work’ is just what’s ‘right’ with the art of singing. Her take on two Jobim songs: “Dindi” (Gilbert) and “Quiet Nights Of Quiet Stars” (Lees) is spellbinding.” – Dan Singer, In Tune International
