About Me

Country music has always been a part of my life. I grew up in rural western New York in farm country. My father, Peter Volpe, was an accomplished musician and fronted our family band with my mom, Eleanore, on bass guitar and brothers, Don and Bob on lead guitar and drums.

When I was a little girl I learned to sing in the band and have never stopped. My love of Classic Country Music was born in that little one-room schoolhouse on Thornton Road.

Now I am an accomplished musician and actress and perform professionally throughout the country. I have appeared on CMT’s “Can You Duet” and alongside Ryan Seacrest on TNN’s “Ultimate Revenge”. I have made people laugh on the Disney Cruise Lines and Unpacked My Adjectives in the National Tour of “Schoolhouse Rock Live”. Last year I starred in “Funny Girl” as Fanny Brice and received rave reviews and have worked with such Broadway stars as Shirley Jones, Adam Pascal ("Rent") and Cady Huffman ("The Producers").

My latest venture is as 1/3 of the 60's girl group The Boobé Sisters with fellow singer/songwriters Leah Finkelstein and Heather Stewart. We are a comedy show that thinks it's a music act or a musical act that thinks it's a comedy show! Check out our monthly show at Corky's Cork Bar in Sherman Oaks or hire us to entertain at your party!
