The Latest

"WORDLESS" instrumental album RECENTLY released.

Composing inspirational, easy listening instrumental music on the piano is something I have always wanted to do. 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 and cultivated my love of music by making sure I had plenty of exposure to it.


I had the pleasure of bringing home “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 and I’m going back in 2019 nominated or not. Woo-hoo!!!


In 2016 I was nominated by East Texas Performing Arts for a Texas Sounds International Country Music Award. Didn’t win but was honored to have been nominated and invited to perform at the event.


Discography:

“Strayz” 2008  (limited edition now out of production)

“Say A Little Prayer For Texas” 2009

“Life Is Good” 2011

“Wordless” (instrumental album) 2019


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.
