A protégé of the late Joe Williams, Yarling currently performs throughout South Florida in jazz, rock, r&b, experimental music, and various other styles.

She will sing "Everything I've Got Belongs To You, "Blame It On My Youth," and Neil Young's "Down By The River" with the jazz orchestra. With the combos she will work on tunes like "Del Sasser," "Freedom Jazz Dance," and Brian Blade's "Stoner Hill."
