Profile Information

About Me:
I am a singer and second generation big band/jazz lover. I grew up watching my dad Bill Ainsworth playing sax and clarinet behind such idols as Ella and Tony Bennett. I love putting new twists on great old songs, both standards and obscurities. I write for radio by day and by night, work with great jazz musicians like Brian Piper, who also produced and plays on my debut CD, "Keep It To Yourself." Drop by my website for samples and to download a free Irving Berlin classic!
