Lorna is making her debut as she unleashes a lifetime steeped in music. Not to be defined by one style, her own personal art of music is a blend of R&B, Pop, Jazz, Soul, Funk and Folk. Her training started early at age 3 under the guidance of her father, one of Portland’s greatest jazz legends, composer & pianist Warren Bracken. Her father’s influence in Jazz, Bebop, and Blues as well as exposure to other jazz greats of the time, led her to be selected as the first child to join the St. Rose Church all-adult choir at age 12, where she sang and soloed up to age 18. After moving away from Portland for 4 years, she made a brief return, then moved and lived in British Columbia. While concentrating on family life and work, the music still called. At work, Lorna met local folk guitarist, Jason Tyler Guest and recorded on his album in 1995. A year later she returned to Portland where she was happy re-connecting with her musical roots, sitting in on the occasional jam session, and melding with musicians of various artistic styles.
