I’ve been a singer since my teens and have performed at a huge array of venues across the USA. I’ve been the opening act for famous comics on the Borscht Belt and soloed at the Algonquin, Town Hall, the Roxy, Mr. Kelly’s, and Rainbow and Stars.
Performing scares me more than anything I have ever done. But as time has gone by, I have become more myself. So now when I’m on stage, I am myself and not afraid. In fact I love it.

A MUSICAL SCRAPBOOK ABOUT LEE WILEY
Lois co-wrote and performed in a musical production with Barry Kleinbort and Paul Greenwood. The New York Times describes Lee Wiley as “Oklahoma-born 1930s jazz singer Lee Wiley, and you will hear the sultry, honey-dripping voice of a Southern-accented forerunner of the young Peggy Lee.” Lois sang Lee Wiley’s songs in her own inimitable way and brought the legend to life.
