Lisa : What do you like about house music?
Well, House Music is recognized all over the world. No matter where you hear it, the rhythm, you just cant sit still. You have to react. To this day, I love House Music!
Lisa : How did you get started?
In grade school, I was a violinist and while the other instruments were doing their part, I decided to start singing the song on the music sheet. Well, needless to say, my instructor stopped the music and asked me to go to the microphone. That started playing and thus my music career was on way!
Lisa : What did you like about working with Iley and Stride on C2C?
It came as a surprise when Iley of Stride asked me to write Coast2Coast, but I welcomed it. You see, the perfectionism in him that I have observed stimulated my whole being. It took me to different heights. His knowledge of the field of music impressed me so I had to come through not only for him but, for me, as well.
Lisa : Did you have any professional training?
No, no professional training. I call it experience. I often think that if it had been presented to me, and I had jumped to the occasion, I may have had a whole different life. I Love my Life!
Lisa : You had another club song that also did pretty well, Revitalized. It was a popular anthem in the 90s at the Loft in New York before the club closed. Tell us about it?
The one song that may actually be my favorite. It gave me so much satisfaction. I was going through divorce. That song was a sort of healing feeling for me after we recorded it and the studio engineer played it back. I am sure I shouted a few times. I cant explain the encouragement I felt from Iley of Stride Records. Felt like I could overcome all the obstacles of divorce. He kept me busy in the studio and performing.
Lisa : What was your level of excitement for the release party in Adam’s Morgan for Coast2Coast?
