Cheryl - Live
I hope you will be entertained and inspired. It is only then I am fulfilled as an artist. It is an honor to be a part of this wonderful community. I have met many life- long friends over the years. Shows are free to watch but positive energy is priceless.
My grandfather sent me home with my grandmother's "Kay" guitar when I was seven years old, just days after she passed away. That guitar started the course of my life which rescued me as a child, and gave me a purpose and a dream. All of which came true, and for that I am grateful. Now as a senior adult I now only play a few venues, events, festivals. I also volunteer my music to bring joy to patients in rehab hospitals, and senior centers.
Thank you for stopping by!

Recording a few custom backing tracks is part of the creation process, which I have enjoyed since I was a kid on my old "reel to reel" tape recorders singing harmony and playing various instruments by ear. I try to keep my tracks simple, for the type of music I play... just enough to enhance the vocals and my acoustic guitar a little. Like my old combo days.
I record with a 24 track digital stand-alone recorder Zoom R24
EQ the single tracks and mix-down later using Mixcraft 8 Studio Software
