I’m a retired Air Force Senior Master Sergeant turned political singer, songwriter, activist and have had a passion for music my entire life performing in choirs and bands in school, at church, and in military clubs while stationed overseas. In 1990, I competed at the annual Kadena Air Base, Okinawa talent competition, won “Best Female Vocalist”, went on to compete at regional and worldwide competitions, and from there was one of the 28 cast members selected from over 200 worldwide finalists to tour with the Air Force’s elite “Tops in Blue” expeditionary entertainment troupe performing for military families at 137 bases around the globe.
While I may have hung up my uniform, I still take my oath to protect and defend the Constitution very seriously…and am now using my music to continue the fight. My songmate, “BigDawg" Andrew, and I have been composing and recording original songs since the 2008 Presidential election. Our songs have focused on the events that have transpired since then with the hope we will motivate others to use their God-given gifts to spread the message of freedom.
I’ve been very blessed and honored to have had the opportunity to perform at many local and National TEA Parties, rallies, conventions, marches, and political campaign events over the past two years including an Independence Day Celebration in Charlottesville, VA, the Free Republic National Convention, the Prince William County Republican Committee’s Lincoln/ Reagan Dinner Dance, The National Organization for Conservative Women’s Inaugural Luncheon, The National TEA Party Convention in Nashville, the Code Red Rally in DC, the Stafford County and Washington, DC Tax Day Tea Parties, 2nd Amendment March in DC, the Republican Party of Virginia Victory Convention, Keith Fimian Fundraiser with Gov. George Allen, Windows to Liberty’s “Rhapsody Concert”, Freedom Work’s “Take America Back” Convention, Michelle Bachman’s TEA Party (8/28/10), M.O.M. for America’s “An Evening with Michelle Malkin”, The Virginia TEA Party Patriots Convention, Thank You Vets March, Freedom Works’ 9/12 Tax Payers’ March on DC, Smart Girl Summit 2010, a Project Healing Waters Baseball Game, Freedom Ride Across America Rally’s final stop in DC, the Jackson Purchase TEA Party in Kentucky in honor of Rep. Rand Paul,the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2011,theProject Healing Waters Annual 2-Fly Tournament, We the People - An American Event, the American Grassroots Coalition's Hold The Line Rally, Columbus County Constitution Day TEA Party, We Stand With Gibson Rally, GOPink Women Working For Change Conference, Campaign Fun-Raiser for Chris Perkins and Jamie Radtke, Road to Repeal Rally, Celebrate Liberty Festival, the Project Healing Waters 6th Annual 2-Fly Tournament, Rock the Red 2012, and most recently the Liberty Republican Women's Club Anniversary Celebration.
Having met so many great fellow conservative artists at these events, we saw a need to rally fellow grassroots, conservative artists to help ignite a “Conservative Pop Culture Revolution”. In August 2010, we launched “BigDawg Music Mafia“, a social networking site to help promote conservative artists and their messages and encourage others to join the “fight”. We have attracted some amazingly talented patriots and look forward to recruiting many more conservative culture warriors at upcoming events leading up to the 2012 elections.Our songs, ranging from blues to country and pop to rock, have been featured on numerous internet blog sites, local and National news sites, AM/FM radio stations, internet radio (regularly featured on Windows to Liberty), a virtual world called “Prototerra” (featured in the Lone Star Saloon), and in SPIN Magazine’s April 2010, 25th Anniversary edition.
