Onstage and Backstage

Vocal and Stage Essentials for the Aspiring Female R&B Singer: A Guide to Technique, Performance, and Musicianship by Terri Brinegar (Hal Leonard Books)
Many of young women who come to Terri Brinegar for vocal lessons aspire to be a professional R&B and pop singer. Often, they know little of what is actually involved, how hard the work is, and how important it is to be a good musician and bandleader. This book and its accompanying CD present Terri's unique approach to vocal technique, musicianship, gigging, working with a band, stage performance techniques, and much more.   Amazon     BarnesandNoble   IndieBound

Joanna Cotten is a "funkabilly" singer-songwriter. She attended Juilliard in New York and now lives in Nashville where she produces her own music of sultry slide guitar, the lonely moan of a blues harp, the righteous thump of a fatback bass, and the sticky soulful rhythm of a Beale Street backbeat.
