Traditional Country & Swing originals
delivered on a billow of sultry,
Meet the singing, songwriting, cigar smoking, pink pinup whose heart & swingin’ hips belong to fiddle & steel, sultry horns & the gentle sway of the palm trees. Raised on the wrong side of the tracks in a sleepy town in the California desert, this Samoan cactus flower writes about life with wit, grit & honesty. She’s out to prove that good music is timeless and tradition is relevant.
