Music & Video
My first love was singing. I've been blessed to have written a catalog of almost 80 songs with a variety of incredibly talented people. I have also created several local bands for myself, Madalyn and Nicole, Tessera String Band, and The Ken Dircks Trio. In 2016 I made an album, LA LA LA, produced by Marc Shulman and engineered by Ted Spencer and Al Hemberger. I just finished writing a play with songs, MAYFLOWER AVENUE, with Stephanie Stowe and directed by Kevin R. Free. Our first public reading was in November 2020, before the world changed forever. I know this play will have its day– stay tuned. I’m available for demo work. I was recently the featured vocalist on Poor Lonesome Cowgirl by Ken Eichler and Dan Stone. My slice of heaven is in the recording studio.
My latest band and musical family are THE WILD LIFE with Kerry Hopwood, Miles East, Neil Herman, and Adrienne Lloyd. We play only original music! Check us out HERE. Also, for private parties, corporate events, and jazz spots, please contact me for booking my jazz band, SWING STATE with Paul Huang on keys and Tom Yarnall on bass. Special guests sometimes include, drummer, Brian Carter and trumpet player, Steph Chinn.
