"she’s developed her keenly insightful, emotionally intelligent songwriting chops, so her long awaited follow-up Big Crazy Love marks not only the re-emergence of a great indie jazz singer, but also the coming out party for an impactful songwriter who effortlessly blends her jazz sensibilities with pop, folk, country and gospel"

Nassim

 Exciting news! I’m thrilled to announce that I will be joining Berlin-based Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour for a special performance of his show NASSIM at Portland Center Stage! Each night, a new, unrehearsed local performer joins the playwright on stage while the script waits, unseen, in a sealed box...


Mark your calendars and join me on 4/21 to experience this amazing work firsthand! Don't know what to expect? Me either!
