Hi everyone!

Welcome and thanks for checking out my site!

I’m back from the Big Apple. I had a massively good time playing at the hip joints of Manhattan with a sensational band. Ok… I should say legendary band! I had Chuck Rainey, Bernard Purdie and Crusher Bennett playing my tunes on stage at The Bitter End!

To top it off, I was joined by guitar wizard, Oz Noy (Oz Noy Trio) and Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega, Duncan Sheik).

It’s an experience I’ll never forget!! The fans were great, the venues were perfect and the vibe was unbelievable! Thanks New York.

People! The show must go on! I’m on the road in sunny Los Angeles. I’ve got a kick-ass all-girl band.

Check these girls out!

DIRTY JEN LEIGH Guitar - (Kelis, George Clinton & P-Funk, Toshi Reagon, Merl Saunders)

KAREN TEPERBERG Drums (Jesse McCartney, Chris Botti, Sting and Shawn Colvin)

VIVIANA RAMA bass (Alana Davis, Joselyn Wilkinson, Matthew Black Orchestra)

We’re funky, we’re contagious, we look good, and we play hard!

Love,
Athala

See you at the next show!
