A multi-talented veteran of the stage, from Westerville, OH, USA, her 30+yr professional career has been diverse as an actor, dancer & singer/songwriter who has touched the hearts of hundreds of thousands internationally on stage, screen and recording. Her magnetic presence, exuberant energy and genuine smile bring a warm authentic charm to the blues scene. With her bed as a stage and hairbrush for microphone, she started singing at the age of 6 accompanied by her motherʼs 45s on her Mickey Mouse turntable. By the age of 11 her bed was replaced by a stage and by 22 she was touring the country as the lead in the National tour of Hair. The blue notes have called to her all her life and since 2010 she’s been listening. She speaks and writes from her heart, direct and unafraid to sing of what makes her soul burn.

This blues man got his start playing classical guitar at the age of 11 on a farm in Normandy, France. Five years later when BB Kingʼs “Blues Is King” reached his ears, his focus changed to Blues, from there he became one of the most admired Blues guitarists in France. This extraordinary soloist integrates the Blues of the 40’s & 50’s with contemporary blues to create his own unique sound and style. In his 40+ year career, he has won several awards for best soloist. He’s shared the stage with many recognized Blues artists including Diunna Greenleaf, Sax Gordon, Sean Costello, Alex Schultz, Kid Ramos, Jimmy Morello, Mike Sanchez, Andy J. Forest, Michael “Hawkeye” Herman, Rob Rio, Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne, Candye Kane, Fernando Jones, Ricky Nye, & Steve Clayton. He remains ever true to the Blues and his favorite guitar masters, T-Bone Walker, Tiny Grimes, & Charlie Christian.

Produced by and featuring Dave Specter, our new CD of 12 original songs, was recorded in Chicago in June 2017 by Grammy winner Blaise Barton at JoyRide Studio. A true French/American collaboration Jennifer “Lil’ Red Milligan & Pascal “Rooster” Fouquet are joined by the dynamite French rhythm section Abdell B. Bop on upright bass and Denis Agenet on drums, with some spicy hot sauce of award winning boogie/ blues pianist Ricky Nye and Shaun Booker, Jeff Morrow and Caroline Rau on vocals.
“This is a high-quality work by every contributor and the production is crystal clear so that all of the nuances that are liberally sprinkled through every track can be heard and appreciated…and to get maximum benefit from this album, I suggest you do just that. It is somehow familiar and yet has clarity and originality that lifts it way above many similarly targeted releases…it’s like slipping into something comfortable and relaxing with a bottle of quality red wine…be it French or New World! NINE -doodle paws out of TEN ”
