September 2015 - Tick Tock, Tick Tock...

September 25, 2015: The last day of summer was only a couple of days ago. In August, I had mentioned that I was looking forward to having some downtime. I have to admit that the first few days of "downtime" were crazy! Waking up to doing nothing...nothing planned and just free time - or so I thought.  It didn't take long until the calls, private messages and emails started coming in asking when the next show was. "November", I would say. It felt like years ahead but among the numerous calls and emails were bookings for Film and TV shoots which came in abundance. My acting agent is on a roll! Keep you eyes peeled on TV shows and new movies -  on the French side.

Then came a call from the theater world. Black Theater Workshop will be celebrating their 45th anniversary and would I be interested in singing a few tunes at the celebrations?  Would I?! Would I! I miss the theater world dearly. I miss the process of discovering and becoming the character to tell the story.  I remember an interview in 2011 with The Charlebois Post about crossing over. Four years later, I've definitely crossed over but haven't closed the door.  Should "that" theater project ever present itself, you can best be sure I'll bite. I am foreshadowing here, my friends.

So it's the beginning of Fall 2015 and throughout the summer, I've felt the need to stretch my wings, to reinvent myself and push the envelope once again. If you know me, or if you've perused the website thoroughly, you know that I love to challenge myself and go beyond my borders. I am not one to sit back and wait, but is one who initiates and accelerates.

I have a new project now. It's a JAZZ project with new band mates. There is no official band name yet but it will come. This debut will start with Jazz Standards and will surely develop into something quite interesting with some original material.

The Blues Collective which I love and through persistence and hard work has garnered numerous industry still alive and well with a 4th album in the wings.

With the new project added, we've adjusted the website a bit. Please, do browse on in and I hope to see you at the shows.
