Hello Friends! 

  Time's really flying! Last Summer was a BEAUTY, with so much sunshine, countless flowers and almost 30 monarch butterflies raised here, though we didn't gig as much as we'd hoped and Covid ruined my Labor Day Weekend. 

 One lovely surprise was anitakeys nomination in the JAZZ category by Cleveland Music Awards!!! I didn't win, but it was sweet to be recognized and the Awards Ceremony on August 26th was Very Cool!

 Fall was very mild in Ohio, and Winter- is this Winter in Ohio now??

 We did some serious  Merrymaking at our show on Friday, Nov.24th at Millard Fillmore Presidential Library on Waterloo in Cleveland!! Here's a Favorite song from that show:

     St. Andrew's Church Jingle Bell Jam on DECEMBER 2ND was a Wonderful Holiday Program!

 My Great-Niece Maddie stole the show with her interpretive dancing,

                                I'm hoping to have a video clip to add here…

 Sharing the Love!

 I'm sending a Valentine To Everyone:

      Love So Hard

            MY 5th CD!!!!!

  20/20 Ever since Covid surprised us, I stayed busy with the CD that we were scheduled to record in-studio that doomed March of 2020, recording instead at home in our musicroom, sending files backandforth with (Special Guest Drummer) John Scully (Duo Decibel System) and engineer/guitarist/drummer Dave Mann at Mann Wolf Audio in Oberlin, and, finally, I released 20/20 last December!

It's a lovely open-air garden setting at 19603 Nottingham in Cleveland, a Wonderful Music space!
