Carpenters with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

Dreams Come True

I am thrilled to be able to sing on one of my idol’s albums. This year, Richard Carpenter of the Carpenters re-recorded the orchestra and choir in many of their hit songs. Growing up my parents had Carpenters records and I used to try my hardest to sound like Karen. It was a dream come true to sing with her voice.

Here’s a link to where to find the album: https://ume.lnk.to/CarpentersOrchestralYD

Suicide Squad Soundtrack

In May, I had the supreme pleasure and honor to sing on the score of “Suicide Squad.”  This is my first time singing on a film score.  It was amazing and a dream come true.

It was a full day session at Warner Brothers Eastwood Scoring Stage on the Warner Brothers lot.  The composer of the film is Steven Price who also scored the Sandra Bullock movie, Gravity.  There were about 30 other singers on the call (SATB).  I was standing […]

What to do with unflattering press articles?

As many of you know, there was a time a few years ago that I was releasing a lot of cover songs.  Most of them were acoustic versions with piano and vocal.  I would record them myself and a friend would release them.  For me there were two reasons to do this, one was for increased exposure and the other was consistent releases without the pressure of going into a studio to do a fully produced album.

One of my cover […]

Interview with Tuoi Tre

A Vietnamese newspaper reporter recently interviewed me about my music and life. I had no idea I had many fans in Vietnam. So I am thrilled to be asked and honored to be in one of their main newspapers, Tuoi Tre. Apparently the Tuoi Tre is seen as a “reformist” newspaper based in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. The reporter, Yen Mai was incredibly wonderful and gave me very thoughtful questions.

Here’s the link to the Vietnamese article:
