It all started by being the "Seamstress for the Band".
..from Zappa to Zevon.. from Clapton to Hendrix to the local bar bands.. I was the girl with the sewing machine..who sang while she worked :)
I had one foot in the music business- while creating clothing for other musicians and at the same time I was doing background vocals on many of their albums,
I had a 45 out in the 70's for the musical production "Jesus Christ Superstar" . The single was "I don't Know How to Love Him" . It landed me a contract and a slot on Merv Griffin ..but they wanted to "make me over" and I "wouldn't wear that @#%* blue chiffon dress and tease my hair" ...so....I ripped the recording contract, left the biz, and went into clothing design ...for awhile ; )
Being the "chick singer" in many bar bands., I have performed and done road touring and worked the "loop": the ski resort circuit, the winery circuit, and playing every type of venue from the street to the big stage at a major pop festival (Miami 1968 - while I was still in high school )
I currently have two albums of original material that are charting in over 60 countries . My “Mixed Signals” album just won the 2022 Album of the Year award from the International Singer and Songwriters Association.
I play over 200 gigs a year , focusing on wineries and listening room environments throughout the US .
