I had the distinct honor of participating in a 2-day marathon recording session with Melba Moore! Producer/songwriter Dennis Johnson and songwriter Zoiea Ohizep created two songs for Ms. Moore’s upcoming release, Forever Moore: It’s My Time Again and I performed the background vocals. I learned so much from her about the industry (both music and theater) and of course, studio techniques. Any time I can learn from a Tony Award winning, Grammy nominated veteran is time well spent!!
