Welcome To The Truth

Most vocalists who have "made it" and continue to have success year after year -- Even with constant touring and recording sessions have this in common:

They have learned by doing!

They didn't get where they are from years of music lessons or books full of methods and drills.

They have consistently put themselves in challenging and creative situations that have enabled them to 'stumble' on and grow into what we know them to be: Recklessly talented and musical!

The Time Has Come... Awake The Song Within You
