 The crowd had thinned out by the time I arrived near the end of her set. The blonde bombshell looked absolutely stunning in a leather skirt as she belted out pop and rock music which sounded like a blend of Katy Perry and Pink.

 She strummed an electric guitar and tapped at a keyboard, sometimes banging on a drum set before her. She  blasted through a credible cover of  the Police’s ‘Roxanne,’ but could have used a band to fill out the extra space.
 She had a huge, beautiful , resonant, soulful voice which grabbed the listeners’ attention.

 She played older, more pop inspired songs as well as more experimental songs, inspired by nature and animals from   her new CD ‘Kodiak.’

 Her guitarist Carl Janzen joined her on stage to add a little extra ambiance, which freed her up to experiment on keyboard and tap her drum.
