I had known Poetry Man my entire life before my friend Jeffrey Elliott introduced me to the rest of Phoebe Snow's musical legacy . It was love at first listen. Her intriguing voice and artistry was matched by an equally intriguing backstory. The world lost a true talent when Phoebe passed away on April 26th of this year, a mere 60 years old.
This Saturday the 19th of November, Jeffrey is producing "AN EVENING WITH PHOEBE SNOW" at Davenports in Chicago. It promises to be a a very special evening and program, and will feature the magnificent talents of Julia Merchant, Becky Menzie, Laura Freeman, and my favorite Chicago Chanteuse Ms. Alma Mendoza. I can hardly wait.

Look for me in the audience, swaying to the beautiful sounds...you can buy me a drink.
And the next time you see Jeffrey, be sure to ask him about the Kimono he made for Phoebe, its a really great story.
