Prior to her 2004 debut, One Moment More (Vanguard Records ), the New York native contributed her rendition of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” for the Parton tribute album, Just Because I’m a Woman. She subsequently released Long Island Shores (Vanguard, 2006), My Holiday (Vanguard, 2007), and Stupid Love (Vanguard, 2009).
