Patti is a ‘natural’ singer with an understanding of the profound need to express ourselves through our voices. Her own journey into Improvisational Singing has developed over a lifetime of creating melodies, invented language and performing, eventually leading her to venture into jazz and ’scat’ singing.
In 2004 she attended a workshop with Bobby McFerrintitled “Spontaneous Invention” and her horizon of vocal improv expanded . In 2008 completed ”All The Way In”, a master class with internationally recognized Master of Improvisation, Rhiannon.
In addition to performing as a jazz vocalist and solo singer/songwriter, Patti is a member of SongSisters - along with Sue Fink and Amy Dixon-Kolar - together they combine talents and share harmonies and ideas on stage.
She coaches others in finding a way to use their voice without fear of judgement and delights in singing improvisational music with others who are learning to let go and move into the moment!
