Grew up in a small Texas town called Kirby. My mother is still thought as one of the best flattop players ever to hit the bar scene with a rhythm strum that had an upswing to sound like 12 strings instead of only 6. While teaching me the ways of rhythm playing, she got me to love singing. With terms like "milking the notes" and "growl into beat" she had a way of making Bluegrass exciting for a younger generation girl. By the age of 16, she was letting me sit in with her band for a few songs during the last set of a gig. Mother would sing high harmony while i took on the lead melody. "Sit up straight and sing from deep inside" is always the voice in the back of my head anytime my mouth opens for lyrics to spill out into the surrounding air. I know i will never sound like her, or maybe never sound good to anyone ..but my love for all of it is respectfully due to my Mother. We lost her Nov 4, 2013-she may no longer be here but she still is in my harmony with every song. The first song she let me sing on stage was called "Jimmy the Paper Boy" at the age of 14. My passion for music has only grown ever since that day.
So, please keep in mind if you happen to check out one of my recordings, it is all about having fun and doing what you feel passionate about. I hope each and every one of you here on SS get as much enjoyment out of it or even just a small percentage that i do.
May Rainbows and Sunshine fill your Days , and May the Angels guide your dreams at Night
with Love in my Heart for all...
