I just joined and looooove the whole concenpt. I did a ton of songwriting in my childhood, teens and 20s, but career, family and kids tooka front seat and the writing, singing and performing suffered.
Now I have an outlet where I can collaborate, sweet!
My influences are anything jazzy and bluesy. Etta James, Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, Ella, newer R&B ala Aretha, and all the new girls too like duffy, winehouse, adelle.
I also digg morcheeba, zero9 and that type of sound.
That's not where it ends, I like the 80s power rock female vox like Benatar, Heart.
I can come up with a melody and lyrics to ANYTHING fast. It comes to me very quickly and easily once I listen to a track.
I hope to collaborate with some of you soon!
