Who I Am
You’ve found me! I’m so happy!
I sing, I write, I record and I live in paradise, also known as Prince Edward County, Ontario & lovingly referred to as “The County”. I have released 6 albums since 1994 including my latest album, “I Wish I Had Wings”. I am currently working on 2 more for release in summer and in fall 2012.
Singing & writing are where I have found my groove (so to speak) in life and my biggest dilemma is how to classify what I do into genres. I can tell you what I am not: hip hop, jazz, blues, pop, rock, folk, etc. So what am I? I can best sum it up by saying that I write & sing uplifting songs about women, my country, God, social issues and things that matter to me. I also LOVE a good turn of a phrase and like to write “goofy” songs like “I’m a Canadian, Eh” or “My Forgetter’s Getting Better” or “The Hardware Song”. I’ve written many songs about the County – a whole album’s worth in fact. It’s on the list.
I love what I do, I love where I live and the people in this community – I feel a true sense of place and of belonging. God is the centre of my life and My family & friends are each my compass.
