It’s Rough Out There!
Which is also the name of a song we just recorded and will be releasing in the fall! Live venues won’t promote you and if you don’t love it, don’t do it! Rejection is the norm! –  @saffy720

It’s Rough Out There!

I discovered my voice earlier on! I didn’t let anyone hear my voice till I was in my 40’s.

My voice and live performance
because when I am my true authentic self, it’s what I was put here for.

Facebook,
I love using the page to keep in touch with my friends and family in London and on my page you’ll see Music, music, music, dogs, music and dogs.

Our next gig is at Rusty’s Surf Ranch on the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday Sept 3rd.

Favorite music quote…
“And you should thank your lucky stars, cos the music is a gift”Amy Winehouse

Gregory Says…
was inspired by Gregory Porter’s beautiful song, No Love Dying. I just loved the sentiment and it helped me to stay in a loving place in challenging times and I wrote about it!

We are a great live band!
We don’t really fit any particular genre of music, although this song certainly fits the Jazz genre, we like to call our style Artisinal and we just love what we do, we are great friends.

I wait for inspiration to hit, I don’t like to seek it out, I am rarely satisfied if I do that.

I don’t separate the two! My life and music are intertwined.
I’m always thinking about the band and what’s next for listening to music. I am hardly ever not in that space.

Women’s right, I am passionate about that.
I once run a non profit that worked with Catholics for Choice is opposing the Vatican’s influence on family planning at the United Nations.
