Vocalist, Arranger, Songwriter
I am a versatile vocalist with the ability to arrange for and perform in pop, jazz, rock, and big band settings.
I can learn and sing songs and arrangements at an advanced level in almost any genre, including singing in Spanish and Portuguese. I can also arrange for one or more vocals as well as various instruments, including rhythm section instruments, brass, woodwinds, and classical instruments. In addition to singing, I can accompany myself or another vocalist on guitar or piano/keyboard. For gigs requiring more instruments, I can contract musicians for an acoustic trio, five-piece pop/rock band, or jazz quartet.
