Use Your Voice!

I’ve been singing since I was a child and vocal performance has always been my biggest passion. I’ve made a living with my voice for over 25 years, starting my recording career at 16 as I fumbled through recording sessions with no clue what I was doing! Over the years I earned a degree with a minor in music, signed numerous record contracts, released 13 albums, sang at crusades, toured extensively, and managed to navigate my way through vocal opportunities. I’m thankful for the guidance from those who went before me-graciously sharing their knowledge with me. It takes years to gain experience which is why having lessons, a coach, or mentor is so advantageous.

This is why I am now offering online vocal coaching, in a one-on-one setting. You may be in need of guidance, direction, or encouragement. Maybe you want to improve your pitch, tone, and range so you can better lead worship. Maybe you want to be a professional singer or simply learn a new skill. I have years of experience to help you USE YOUR VOICE.

Route 66 at the Bucktown Review

This is a throwback to 2013, in Davenport, Iowa. I was invited to sing at the ‘Bucktown Review’ by the amazing guitarist-Jim Van Winkle. This is the first of two songs we performed, and one of my favorites to sing, not in small part due to my love iof the road and touring! #Route66

Online Church

When the world shut down in 2020, we launched ‘Sola Church Online’ to fill the void felt by so many church goers. Fast forward to 2023, we are now thrilled to be meeting IN-PERSON in Santa Monica, but with the continued demand for an online option, we’ve continued producing an online service at Our biggest challenge was getting good sound for the worship segments, but with some creativity we managed to make these worship videos with nothing but an iPhone and a microphone! Here is my version of “Defender”, from one of our online services.


Here’s a peek at one of my favorite experiences professionally. In the 2000’s I was invited to be a part of the ‘Harvest Crusade Worship Band’, as well as Greg Laurie’s ‘Monday Night at the Grove Theater’ series. My band ‘Sparklepop’ also led worship on Sunday Nights at Harvest Christian Fellowship during their Day 7 season!
I have nothing but great things to say about the leadership and band mates I worked with at Harvest and what fun it was to sing to filled crowds in Anaheim stadium for the crusades! It was amazing to see the sea of new believers spill onto the field during the alter call with Crystal Lewis standing beside me belting out ‘Come Just As You Are’. This is one of the few photographs I have from that era as it predated ubiquitous cell phone cameras! Haha!

Covid 19-In This Together

This map shows the countries affected by Covid 19 as of March 15, 2020. As social media posts from around the world scroll through my feed, glimpses into the anguish in China, the month long quarantine in Italy, and the friends who are stranded in foreign countries that are on lockdown-I am reminded of just how unique this experience in time is.

I can remember when Russia was our grave enemy and we did “nuclear bomb drills” in school, hiding under our desks in case the Commies pushed the button. I remember being on an airplane flying over the west coast when the pilot announced that we’d begun bombing Iraq in the first gulf war. I remember waking up in Washington state to see terrorists flying planes into our buildings, killing everything in their path. I have seen the political hatred in our country, dividing us in ways I never imagined possible.
But in these past weeks something unprecedented has happened. Suddenly every nation on earth has a common enemy. Human beings around the world are protecting themselves from the same attacker. For the first time we are seeing humanity in a new way. From the violin player serenading the people holed up in their apartments in Spain, to the Italian chorus of patriotic songs from their balconies, or the gospel singing in an Alabama grocery store.
In the midst of the fear, anxiety, and even hoarding, there is beauty, community, and relatability. We can empathize and feel each other’s pain regardless of our language or social station. Communist, Socialist, Republican, or Democrat-we know what it feels like to be sick, to be scared, and to feel grief.
It’s ironic isn’t it? I mean we somehow seem closer together than ever while being forced apart-isolated in our six feet of space, or even quarantined. Maybe we need each other more than we’d like to admit. And maybe it took a pandemic for the world to realize that family, love, friendship, and community are what really matter in this life.
Let’s rise to the occasion. Be kind. And stay well. ❤️🙏🏻
