She has performed professionally for 21 years. She admires Tina Turner, Bette Midler, Pat Benatar, Stevie Nicks, and Melissa Etheridge.
William Garrett: Guitars & Vocals -
Heavily influenced by blues legends, BB King, and England's Robin Trower as well as classic rock
players including Neal Schon of Journey and Alex Lifeson of RUSH to name a few, William has developed
a dynamic,emotionally charged style of playing that is his and his alone. His highly improvisational
and melody-driven guitar work is powerful and aggressive.
Those key elements are from both the blues
and classic rock genres and are clearly present in his playing. He can truly be described as rockin' blues!
