I have 5 decades of award-winning experience as professional singer, vocal coach, songwriter and studio producer. In my current primary role as vocal coach, I work mainly with career level singers and speakers, or those who aspire to vocal careers. If there are speakers or singers in your audience, I can offer interesting stories and give actionable information to help strengthen effective communication skills and protect the voice from strain. I don't just speak from theory, I speak from experience, and I care very much about voices and creative spirits in general.

About the song, You Want it Back
