Sensitive Side of Love & Life
Delores is originally from Chicago, where she did modeling and films. Before moving to New York, she did several concerts in the Chicago area and decided to write her own material. She gets the words and melodies for her songs all at once. She is a natural storyteller and sees life as it really is. She has a way of singing what others want to say. She gives hope to the broken-hearted, her songs make you stronger. Each one of the songs on this CD is a gem by itself! Even better, together they tell the story of relationships. She is a member of IAJE, a full member of ASCAP and a member of International Women in Jazz. After a six-week engagement at Miss Elle's, an intimate supper club on New York's West Side, Delores became the Music Co-ordinator at Miss Elle's & Co, booking singers for Evening Jazz sessions. Sadly, Miss Elle's & Co was forced to close it's doors after New Years Eve, due to a huge rent increase. (Any singers who are interested, should call Delores at (347) 726-8925, to arrange for an audition and discuss details. Singers with groups are especially welcome.) Delores is also booking singers and Jazz musicians at other venues. Delores will, of course, return from time to time to sing, but for now she wants to help others with an opportunity. There are not enough Jazz vocalist opportunities in New York! Delores hosted a Fundraiser for Barack Obama at Jazz on the Park in New York on Thursday, July 19, 7 to 10. There was a Jazz quartet, hors d'puevers and Delores sang a song she wrote in honor of Barack.
