Hopefully, this will continue as we have such a great talent pool of actors and the area can certainly support it IF they so choose..Great opportunity...Yipee!!

"I DO, I DO ! - January 15, 2010

Only time will tell....The show will Premier February 5th....email me for details....

and so the filming continues... - January 9, 2010

Just wrapped another indie film called "The Lunch Box" with David Jofre as director...I had such a great part as the "cougar" bartender. What a fun group to work with as well as efficient...gotta like that as well! Can't wait to see the final product!

"Love, Chase"....it's a Movie! - October 23, 2009

My son Keaton and I recently have been cast in a short independent film called "My Space". I am very excited about being a part of this film because it is based on true stories and is a current theme in our society today. It portrays a mom who is struggling to control her fourteen year old daughter from getting carried away with her my space page and all the boys trying to seduce her. So, she creates a "nice" guy to talk with her daughter and keep her occupied. This eventually backfires and her daughter falls in love with this fictitous character...to the point of changing her very existence.... We are filming through the month of October...I am SO happy to report ....I am co-writing a song with my cousin Janet that will be played at the end of the movie...called "My Angel" I will be singing the vocals and am very excited to have the opportunity!!!!

Ok...so now it's 2009...How Fine! - March 10, 2009

For the last three years I have put my music and acting career on hold due to family commitments. I am now formulating a plan to get back into the music scene in writing and performing...would like to create my own trio with like minds who want to collaborate writing new material with similar goals....one future goal is to create a show to bring on tour in Australia, where I have had around 20 Radio Stations playing my Christmas CD. Seems like a great place to tour, eh? So, cheers for now and I look forward to seeing you all at future gigs here in town, hopefully within the next year or so...make your dash count!

Ho, Ho, Ho and a New Musical Merry Christmas to you! - October 19, 2006

Greetings and Good News! After much prompting by promoters,friends and family,my new Christmas CD 'Gifts of the Season' is finally here! I am SO excited about this CD! It still amazes me to have an idea (let's create a new Christmas CD!) and then see it become a reality! It has been a great journey and I learn more everytime I finish a CD.I have my great musicians that are on all my other CD's. Piano player Randy Halberstadt is always a dream to work with. He comes up with great ideas on the spot for new arrangements and really is a wonderful accompanist. Next is my buddy Jeff Johnson with his soulful bass playing and great spirit. Finally, drum and percussion player Mark Ivester gave a powerful yet gentle touch to these songs with great rythems. There is a total of 13 songs on the CD, three of which are original songs that I co-wrote with my brother, David Gerstenberger. We have a system down where I write the lyrics and a form of the melody, and then my very talented brother helps create the music. Two of the original songs were already produced as singles. A new original 'Christmas Time' was added along with the others. In this new song I love the message of taking time out of our busy schedules during the Christmas season and enjoy our loved ones along with helping someone less fortunate than ourselves. I would love to see these original songs become classics someday! The other ten songs are great old fashioned Christmas Songs. On two of these classic Christmas songs I have two featured vocalists. On 'Baby It's Cold Outside' my duet partner is Johnathan Ries. He is dear friend with a great voice whom I have performed musical theatre with and actually produced,directed and performed our own Christmas show together! My next fabulous guest was brought to me by my promoter Michael Sutton. He suggested that I invite a Philippine singer to join me on the CD and sing in Tagolag, the native language. This I thought was a great idea, as the CD will be distributed by Mondo Distribution in the Philippines! My guest vocalist in 'Silent Night', Norm Santorin(stage
name:Tony Martin on VIVA Records) is a great surprise! Not only is he a wonderful person, his voice is fabulous! What a blessing to have both of these gentlemen on the CD! So, I hope I have tweaked your curiousity and can't wait for you to hear this great CD! I would also like to invite you to join my guestbook and let me know what you think! Until next time, enjoy each moment life brings... and may 'Gifts of the Season' bring you cozy, peaceful moments with your loved ones!

On the Acting front... - April 18, 2006

Now that I am back in Seattle I now have a new acting agent who is an absolutely fabulous agent as well as a great person!The agency is Dramatic Artists and my agent is Nancy Fox. Seattle is not as busy as it used to be, but I have been doing some voice over and print work. I'll keep you updated now on this new website! Sweet Regards!

Hear Oh Hear Some News of Great Importance... - April 17, 2006

A GGGreat opportunity has appeared for me that I would like to share with you all...I just signed with Broken Records/Mondo Distribution in the Philippines. They will be promoting,marketing and distributing my CD 'Misbehavin Heart in Tower Records and Music one stores across the country. This is so great because there is a great demand for the pop-jazz sound (They have already been playing my original Christmas songs on the radio nationwide last Christmas). Also, the people there still by CD's as MP3's are not as commonplace as here in the States. So, I will keep you posted...Have a Great Day! Sweet Regards...

Sisu Heart...What does it mean?... - April 14, 2006

Sisu Heart is the name of my Record company I just recently created when I was living in Los Angeles last pilot season...The name rings true to my 'heart'. Sisu is a finnish word meaning: Strength, Courage, Perseverance and Kindness. A little word with alot of meaning, all of which applies directly with being an artist in music and acting! Heart seems to be an unending theme in my life. My father called me "Heart" as a nickname from the time I can remember, and so is a tribute to him. I am thrilled to have Sisu Heart Records as my business name!
