I started out in church at the age of 15, singing gospel. In 1995 started singing in the blues band “BMW”(Blues Music Works). In 2002 formed my own band, “Blue Faze”. Go on to open for Kelly Richie, Janvia Magness, Eden Brent, and Bettye LaVette.
theCAUSE is a band consisting of 5 Pittsburgh musicians who have all been around the proverbial block. Playing tunes from Grateful Dead, Phish, The Beatles, Bob Dylan and MORE, including some very tasty originals, theCAUSE packs a punch while still paying close attention to the delicate touch.
