Thank goodness I've found this page...!
Several years ago, I picked up a promotional CD at work that nobody else wanted. Once I listened to it, I was hooked on the artist. That artist was Schascle. I made a tape and loaned it to a friend of mine at work who was a singer/songwriter and had just received a contract with Polygram. She loved Twinkle's music so much that as a going away gift, I gave her the CD -- but I haven't found it again since.
Now I know that Schascle is still recording and will keep looking for her music. Her voice is raw and powerful, and I would love to see her in concert given the chance.

I live in Sarasota and "discovered her" before I found her album. Which doesn't do her justice. She is a phenomenal live performer. Though she was late the last two times I saw... seems to be a trademark. But god can that woman sing.... hubba hubba

Like yourself, I was intrigued by the cover of Schascle's cd cover and took a chance when I bought it in a used CD store. I had never heard of her before. I really like her voice alot...and I guess if I was going to compare her voice to anyone..it would be Joan Osbourne. She also has a very bluesy-soulfull voice... I found your website very interesting...keep up the good work!

Do you live in Australia? I just heard a rumor that the new CD was out....apparantly she does have a new single out and it is getting alot of air play in California. I think this new CD will really showcase her talent in a different light; more like how she sounds live and in person! I have been waiting for it for a long time as have you I'm sure. I am going to see her tomorrow eve. so I will find out about the new CD and let you know. Her newsletter is just so "twinkle" ....shows some pictures of her beautiful children and some personal editorials....if you give me your address I will send you a copy, as well as any other info I can dig up about her from my collection. She is really a beautiful person with such a gift and I would love to share the music with a fellow fan! Take care.

So great to see a Twink web page! I live in Sarasota and have been a fan of Twinkle for many years....I wish you could see her live; she is fantastic! Her new CD is complete on Newtown Records and she recently got married. She is truly a beautiful person on the inside and outside and I encourage you to write to her for a copy of her newsletter..Schascle P.O. Box 18231 Sarasota, FL 34276
peace and thanks!

Schascle, though she has a major record deal she signed a five album deal with warner reprise, is still a local act in the area. As I said her first album kinda bombed not to any fault of her own...The guy who produced her Haunted By Real Life album was the same guy who did Madonna's (if you see her live you would know just how scary that really is) Therefore since the album did not do so well her label really has not really given her much in the way of promotion. If you are in contact with her please please please find out if she is playing out in south florida ,,, cause I would love to go see her. She has been compared to Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin many times in articles I have read on her. She has apparently been working on this new album for a few years now, I hope it is really going to happen. Well let me know what you find out ...Thanks for responded, I appreciate it.

I found your web page on Schascle she is my favorite females singer. I have seen her perform many times....all I can say is her album Haunted By Real Life actually sucks compared to her live. She is so raw. On that album they tried to make sound like a pop singer, and it is not her at all. If you get any information on her I would appreciate it if you could pass it along to me. I have not heard anything on her in over a year. The last time I saw her play in Miami, she said she was doing another album but haven't heard anything on it...am also interested in if she if playing out anywhere.

She does indeed live in Sarasota, and I discovered her the same way you did: looking thru the bins at a store and saying "Who's this?"
I just got an address for her, and I'll let you know what response I get.
