I'm originally from Birmingham, Alabama, and now live in
Newnan,GA. I have been singing since high school, and I have
been an ETA since February, 2008. I have been a life-long Elvis
fan because my grandmother played Elvis' music often when I
was a child. I remember thinking there was something wrong
with her stereo because there was so much reverb on Elvis' voice.
But the recordings actually sounded like that in the 50s! I saw
William Stiles perform IN THE "STILE" of Elvis in 2007 and he
inspired me to give it a try. William's performance really
reminded me how great Elvis was, and that's what I try to do:
REMIND people what a great entertainer Elvis Presley was. I
have had the best time trying to perform like Elvis. You really get
a new level of respect for Elvis when you try to sing like him. He
was so talented.
I also do impressions of Johnny Cash, James Taylor and Frank
Sinatra. Hopefully I'll be recording some of that music soon.
