Wordless

Wordless

Composing inspirational, easy listening music on the piano is something I wanted to do for years. That desire came to fruition on March 15, 2019 with the release of “Wordless”.

Gordon McLeod and I had lots of fun collaborating in his studio. I hope you enjoy the music as much as we enjoyed making it.

Special thanks to Milo Deering for his flute work on "Calling To Me".

Bio

My love is singing, songwriting, playing my instruments and performing in the hope of enriching the lives of others. Plus I enjoy making music a lot!!


“Zinger” a six string, “Sweet Baby” a 12 string “Little Boy Blue” a mandolin and “Big Yama” a piano keyboard are my instruments.


My journey through music began at the early age of 6. Singing at church, in school choir and at special events.  Over time I learned to play guitar, mandolin and piano.

I was blessed with music loving parents with beautiful voices who cultivated my love of music by making sure I had plenty of exposure to it.


“Female Artist of the Year” in Folk/Americana from The Josie Music Awards 2018. The Josie Music Awards was held in Pigeon Forge, TN at the Celebrity Theater in Dollywood. It was lots of fun!!


Nominated by East Texas Performing Arts for a Texas Sounds International Country Music Award 2016.

Aside from performing and songwriting, I have produced nineteen outdoor music festivals in the Tyler area.

Co-founded and co-produced, with Lisa Byrn, the 2009 and 2010 Texas Independent Music Expo held in Dallas, TX.

Presently I perform solo or as a duo with award winning recording artist, Sheila Clark, as “Callens & Clark” at wineries, pubs, restaurants, festivals, private events, retirement/nursing centers in the east and central Texas areas.
