I've been a hair stylist for more than 35 years now, and continue to love what I do. Doing hair for all these years has provided me with independence, many valuable long-term relationships, and a lot of creative gratification.
I am also a singer/songwriter and performing musician and have been practicing my craft for the better part of 50 years. In my youth I pursued it as a career and it has remained a passion for me. I am currently a member of The Big Jangle, a tribute band playing the music of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Stevie Nicks, Traveling Wulburys, and more.
In 2008, I formed a band called Dream Posse that has written, recorded and still performs original music combined with eclectic rock music. In 2018, Dream Posse released it's long anticipated CD, "The Album." It features 10 original songs and is available on all major platforms such as iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Spotify. It is the satisfying culmination of many years of collaborative songwriting.
For nine years, my husband and I produced an annual local event called The Lafayette Community Music Festival where musicians donate their time and talents to raise funds for the historic Town Hall Theatre, a non-profit here in Lafayette where we live. It was a source of pride and satisfaction that also supported our local music scene.
Many years ago, my wonderful vocal coach, the amazing Judy Davis inspired me to write a Christmas song. Finally, on November 5th, 2018. "Christmastime Once Again" by Kiki's Christmas All Stars, featuring the talents of Tony Lindsay (Santana) and Lisa Leuschner (Foreverland) was released. Producer/Arranger, Jeff Tamelier and I feel it has all the elements to be a classic, RnB Christmas hit! Enjoy it with along with a cute video on YouTube. It's also available on all major platforms, and played around the clock on world wide Holiday internet stations.
These days, I'm so grateful to still be writing, collaberating, producing, and recording. My most recent work, "Something To Prove" by Kiki Stack's Rock Paper Scissors will soon be followed up with four more original tunes in 2023. A true and lasting passion in my life.
And, of course, the greatest joy in my life has come from my wonderful, and entertaining family... my husband Tom, and our son Sam, both of whom I adore beyond belief. Who, I ask, am I without their support?!
