For Dec. 4 I'll be joined by my friend, the wonderful singer, pianist, and teacher Jen Parde. We'll trade songs and swap stories, and try (but not very hard) to keep the stream from going long.
"Jen's solo work is deeply influenced by fellow singer-pianists such as Vienna Teng and Norah Jones, and well as by the heartfelt, blues-tinged popular singers Adele and Eva Cassidy. Her deeply interpretative singing style is informed by her extensive jazz training (from high school onwards), including a music degree from Goucher College and studies with the late Pam Bricker (a well-acclaimed jazz singer from DC)."
(I love when writers talk about their writing process, and Jen does a fantastic post about Lillith's song here: http://www.jenniferparde.com/2017/05/liliths-song-story-lyrics-video-link/)
