Flossie Malavialle and Keith Donnelly

Maybe I'll Forget You

http://youtu.be/BHpUI ULkawY

written by Keith Donnelly

I don’t know what can be said about Flossie that hasn't already been said. She simply captivates all, with her sensual voice, into a web of enchantment and with Keith’s sensitive accompaniment they make such a fabulous duo. Keith is an exceptional and talented singer songwriter and a really funny man, they are both a class act and someone not to be missed.

The close harmonies that Hissyfit, Hazel and Karen accomplish, are absolutely enchanting, they leave audiences spellbound. Karen’s songwriting skills portray stories about the very perilous livelihood of the fishing industry and the hardships of the sea.
