I AM a 40 year veteran of the Acoustic Folk Wars across Canada and Northern U.S. My most recent change was to move from the Yukon to Victoria and then to Nanaimo. Just following my shoes where life takes them.
I have completed 4 Recordings so far; Danna Waldman, Alive and Well at the CYO, Stand and Listen, (3 officially released, Tales of Mother Moose to be re-recorded/ producer shenanigans, don't you know).
Throught the '70's to 2000; lots of festivals, tours, revues, theatre show, solo and combo work, other gigs aplenty, and I do have the t-shirts to prove it.
I am a lyricist,vocalist, harmonist, composer, arranger, musical director.
I have fronted ; Dance, Country, Celtic bands.
I have always been able to pick up instrument on the way, including Guitar, Banjo (5-string, Plectrum), Bass, Mandolin, Fiddle Brass, Harmonica, Saw.
In my alter ego I have acted in Theatre, Film, and TV in addition performing Standup Comedy. I still have memberships in the BC actors union (affiliated with ACTRA) and Actor's Equity (both withdrawn but not quit).
Due to my Gender Transition, I am starting a new musical chapter, the only real difference being that I am much prettier and I now sit down to pee. Life gives lemons? Bust out the tequila and salt.
