Then one became two... and two became four:
I met my most awesome drummer (and husband), Kevin Scheyer, when I finished college and moved to Georgia.  His band, Soulmites, played the same clubs as my band, Snapdragon.  One night at a show in Columbia, SC, I tried to set him up with my beautiful backup singer who told me all he talked about all night was me.  Hmmm…  We ended up moving to Nasvhille where we got married and played lots of music together, and now we’re back in Augusta still working on our best collaboration: our two boys, Felix & Nopa.  We occasionally take our little family band on the road down to Mississippi, and up to North Carolina, but mostly hang out around Augusta, GA, playing all kinds of kid events, and pretty much having way too much fun.
