    KaitlinMcGaw and DivaJC

    in Music

    Singer and composer Kaitlin McGaw grew up in Boston and graduated with honors from Harvard University before moving to San Francisco. Like fellow Harvard grads Bonnie Raitt, Rivers Cuomo, and Yo-Yo Ma Kaitlin left the academic realm to pursue music (though recently someone called her a "genius" behind her back). From the age of four, Kaitlin was jumping on stage to perform, joining children’s music performers RosenShontz onstage to sing and dance with them at the first live show she attended. She was on stage throughout her childhood, only slowing down while at Harvard where she studied African-American Studies, followed by literary research in post-apartheid South Africa. On November 8, Diva JC embarks upon a Borders Book Tour with her book, IN PURSUIT OF A MELODY and the companion CD. The book contains her memoirs and the history of Women in Jazz, plus 40 original songs and 35 poems. Also, in the book is a lecture on the business of music - So, You Want To Be A Singer?
