She brings to them her unique ear for harmonies and phrasing, her ground-shaking, power vocals, and her unmatched versatility to create music that is fresh, inspiring, and just plain fun. Her talent has garnered praise from diverse audiences, including South African youth in Johannesburg, attendees at the U.S. Africa Business Summit in Washington D.C., to Jazz enthusiasts at the world-renowned Scullers Jazz Club and RegattaBar venues in her hometown of Boston.

    July 4th Celebration, SLB12, Book Poetry & Live Music in Second Life

    in Current Events

    Happy 4th! Listen to my new music discovery right at the start of the show. I accidently found The Painted Pianos-Go (Ft. Olmos) on SoundCloud. This week, I made it to Me & You with Mic and Meetu Writer on Concert Window and Tranquil Cafe. On Friday, I popped in The Lost Unicorn Gallery event for the Magical Collection by Pam Estonia and Magissa Denver. Seth Regan (aka Mankind Tracer) was the featured artist. To end my Friday night, I stopped by Nashville Row for James Olmos concert which continued until wee hour of Saturday morning. James Olmos is one of those rare musicians who actually enjoys engaging with his fans. I was beyond amazed when he turned one of my poems into a song which he sang live! The highlight of my crazy week. Red Heaven performed their farewell show at Templemore in Second Life. I hope it's only for the summer and the band will be back in SL before the end of 2015. There are lot of festivities and hunts going on in Second Life this month. Be sure to make it to some of the live music shows and literary events going on. As always, Sunday is packed with open mic poetry from morning to night. Be sure to follow me on twitter and Blogtalkradio.
