In this special Christmas episode I am joined by my lovely wife, Leslie Smail, to interview the singer/songwriter Janine de Souza. Janine wrote and performed one of Leslie's all-time Christmas songs and it was a true pleasure to meet the artist herself.

Janine de Souza is a singer/songwriter. She has written and produced a musical (“Brand New Day”), lead and founded a Jazz band for 8+ years while working as a Kindermusik and music teacher for at musical theater summer camp and for an elementary school.  She received her Associate’s Degree in Business from Broome Community College and her Bachelor’s in Professional Music from the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.  Janine was awarded a Songwriting Scholarship while attending Berklee. She writes in several different genres: Country, Pop, Rock, and Children’s music. She is currently co-writing numerous Sync songs for ads, film, and TV.  Her goal is always the same though……to create music that will move people emotionally and authentically.

Her original songs have been performed in and around the Boston area and according to Beverly Creasey, a prominent Boston theater critic for IRNE (Independent Reviewers of New England), “…de Souza’s songs are infectious, smart, and versatile….”

In this special episode of Unstructured in time for the holidays, Randall Kenneth Jones interviews me (or toys with me). We talk about what is my history and I learned a lot about myself that I never knew. 

This fun episode is in the spirit of Norm MacDonald and "Based on a True Story" as in that it is based on me, I exist, and the much of the rest is an inspired fabrication from Randy.

I had a lot of fun with this one and hope that you do too!
