~ Bibis: Wilmington's Rock Gypsy
“I was singing in church, when I was really little, and someone offered operatic vocal training to me when I was very young, and my dad told them no because he was afraid I would lose my soul. He was afraid that if I lost, you know, these unique characteristics that I was showing, you know, vocally…he was afraid that I would lose them and I couldn’t agree with him more, at 26. In terms of formal voice lessons, my dad never let me do, he didn’t want me to take away the blues. I just, I would love to sing as long as people wanna listen”

"After working at MTV, I learned very quickly how rare it is to encounter an artist that had talent AND a presence....an ease in conversation that makes them approachable and inspires an attachment from the audience. Does it help that she and I are already good friends....of course! But I've watched Bibis maneuver crowds, and interact with strangers as if they were old friends. She is the real deal, folks.
