My first foray into original music "Too Long Away"

garnered a Billboard Songwriting Award for the title track,

The title track was #1 for 3 weeks on Mp3.UK.

Awarded me a spotlight in the Wing Luke Museum Exhibition: "Music in the Lives of Pacific-Asian Islanders," I became the first (noted)Fil-Am Female Rock Artist in the US. I'm sure there were others but I was just too noisy to ignore.

"Help Me," made it to #1 Alternative on Soundclick and is still getting raves, probably because it's an "everyman" song.

It took a long while for that 2nd cd, "Re-Tread." Re-Tread, was my learning bar for switching to a digital computer-based system.

"Undone" was released in 2011 as a limited edition made for a private event. It is not available for the public to obtain yet. Many of the songs listed here are on that cd, though.

In the meantime, look for new songs here and for my previous releases at CDBaby.com. The tracks you hear here (??) are all fairly new, soon to be released, and/or just because I like them, I've added some old ones.

Love and Rockets!
