How did the two of you meet and begin collaborating?
Laurence claims that he remembers meeting me when I was still working for Affordable Movers, and was scamming a free meal at the Hyatt where he was playing piano. The first time we met in a musical setting was at the Mill, where Laurence was the regular pianist for the Ed Petersen band on Monday nights. I was the first singer ever (I think) to be invited to sit in for an evening as guest artist, and I think LH was a little shocked that the scrubby-faced mover he’d met the week before was now going to sit in for the evening. But then we played a set, and at least some of his fears were allayed. On the break we began a conversation about music which is ongoing.
