Album Notes
A New Kind of Vocal Group
One great thing about being an artist today is that one has the ability to draw from so many varied influences that one can create a textured sound that cannot be pigeonholed and can be appreciated on multiple levels. Vocal groups have a diverse history and usually revivalists remain true to one of the many forms. SIGNATURES combines the sounds of '40s style groups like The Pied Pipers and The Modernaires, the free jazz vocalizing of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, and pop groups like The Stylistics, The Beatles, The 5th Dimension, and Manhattan Transfer. This unique act also draws from the touching harmonies of Simon and Garfunkel, the country rock sound of The Eagles, and the inventive and dynamic arrangements of Earth, Wind and Fire.

Rarely does a vocal group have four gifted soloists, each with the ability to step to the fore to lead, and then blend back into the ensemble to support the whole. This is one such group. Each one is a headliner in her own right, with her own unique signature.

SIGNATURES has it all - solos, duets, trios, and lush 4-part harmony - along with an entertaining show that will leave you in a state of pure musical joy. These ladies love to sing and share that passion from the first song to the last.

Don't miss the opportunity to experience SIGNATURES.

While in Las Vegas she was sought after as both a lead singer and vocalist for several revues, including the award-winning "A Bare Touch of Vegas".

Signatures Review
Um...LOVE this cd. I have to admin that I thought it would be hard to match a Signatures live performance sound, but it really does represent them well. It takes something great, in my small but growing book, to entertain with a recording and a live act. Both for Signatures are fantastic. LOVE LOVE LOVE
