What a delight it was to find out PARADISE made the Hot 16 List on Soulbounce amongst an eclectic list of young and emerging talent – that is quite fabulous for a vet like me. To remain fresh and true to myself always keeps my soul rooted in my work. I always hope my efforts and collaborations resonate with audiences large, small and diverse as well as the young without pandering and the young and heart. It’s in the music!

I was quite pleasantly surprised when one of my favorite house remix producers sent me this mix he’d done for my single “Candlelight” from a few years ago. He’s given ‘Candlelight’ an updated tribal house feel. Casamena will be remixing “The Dawn” from PARADISE as well.
I can’t wait to hear what he comes up with.
The remix was premiered on Soulbounce: Here

Read the review of “Sanctuary” from the forthcoming “Paradise” on Soulbounce: HERE
If you slept on the album, it’s a nice one to discover for the first time or revisit or you haven’t played it in a while. I’d already made a decision with my third album to broaden the scope of my artistry and the songs I wrote and recorded – not wanting to be trapped in the pop box and all that that entailed. I’d accomplished what I’d wanted with my first two albums and wanted to move on creatively. This album also went against the grain of Hip Hop and New Jack Swing which was the dominating sound of this era.
“Intimacy” remains a warm and beautiful album written and recorded during the demise of my marriage and a difficult time in my personal life.
