I live in Dundee on the east coast of Scotland. The acoustic sounds and vocal music of singer songwriters such as Gerry Rafferty, Dan Fogelberg, Jonathan Edwards and Crosby Stills Nash & Young were major influences in my early years.
I signed a recording and publishing deal with State Records in 1978. By 1980 a series of life events resulted in my singer songwriter ambitions being placed carefully on the sometime later shelf. More than 20 years on, a chance meeting with John Wooler, a Los Angeles based producer with 26 grammy nominations and 6 wins was the catalyst for me to lift the dreams off the sometime later shelf.
By 2002 I had started writing again. Working closely by this time with John, I was introduced to Barbara Orbison who asked if I would record some celtic influenced demos of late husband Roy’s songs. Several weeks later the demos were completed. John and I liked what we had come up with and we started making plans to record my debut album. Americelt Union was released in July 2005 and has been described as, an innovative blend of acoustic roots, folk and country laced with the finest celtic cream.
Once again life events caused me to give up music in 2007. It is now January 2015 and a few weeks ago decided to begin fairy stepping my way back to songwriting and music once again. My writing covers different genres and includes Acoustic, Americana/Country, Singer Songwriter, Easy Listening, Inspirational, Light Pop/Rock and Instrumentals
