About Me

My Chanteuse
      Delilah!

Born and reared in Dayton, Ohio, this Buckeye grew up, enraptured by the musical stage.  Weaned on 'South Pacific', ''My Fair Lady' and of course "West Side Story', Delilah always yearned to sing of love and life on the wicked stage.

During her high school and college years at the University of Colorado in Boulder,  she apprenticed in Ohio with the infamous Kenley Players, backstage and onstage with the likes of Ethel Merman, George Hamilton, Ann Miller, Dom De Luise and Joan Rivers.    After graduating, Delilah quickly moved to NYC, where for the next three years, she sang in the cabarets alongside Bette Midler, Barry Manilow and Melissa Manchester.

A move to the West Coast prompted a different approach, working with small bands at the height of the disco craze. Once in Los Angeles, she began to tour her solo act to Playboy Clubs in Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya Japan and the Phillippines, as well as other nightclubs on the East Coast. It was during the Asian tour she began to cultivate a repertoire of international songs, the first of Piaf - 'La Vie en Rose',  'Sukiyaki' and a signature Japanese version of 'I WIll Survive'. 

During the years of parenting her girls, Delilah taught music, voice and drama, mounted various productions and recorded two cds with Doug Davis, Music Chair at Cal State Bakersfield.  

Now on the Central Coast, Delilah has delighted local audiences in productions of  'Cabaret', 'Thoroughly Modern Millie', 'Sinatra' and "Full Monty'.  In between productions, she performs the songs of Edith Piaf, Lotte Lenya and the Cabaret.
