    Chris, it was good seeing you! I'm a WOOG. Worn out old guy after yesterday. :D

    Let me know if you want to spin some vinyl. I rarely listen to the system by myself. Navigating retirement, adjusting.

    I have read that this gal is pretty good (as well as her albums) and a Pacific Audio Society has actually had her play live, followed immediately by a reproductive effort from a nice system. How would you rate her recordings/music?

    Someone posted a thread @ ASR with links to a bunch of Reddit photo thingies he's posted from AXPONA. I'll point to the ASR link which has links to the Reddit thingies, FWIW. :)

    She is terrific! I have a numbered HQ-180 gram Blue Minds double LP album signed by her. Met her at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest. Carl took a pic of me with my arm around her telling me to keep my hands to myself....lol. She laughed. Her recordings are very good, worthy of demo material as you heard.

    She is an excellent pianist, been playing since she was young and has an intimate, silky smooth voice. Excellent framing, timing and inflection. We heard her play in the atrium at RMAF. She writes of human passions, and whether she writes or covers, she puts her heart and soul into the song. I rate her very highly.
