Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


There was a girl who one day around the tender age of 32 listened to the piano music her mother used to play her as lullabies as a child. Somehow she was able to start writing songs, mostly lyrics to begin with, and very fortunately for her, her first real song called “Miss the Magic Music”, a soulful hip hop number, made it to the finals of the Australian Songwriters Association (ASA) Awards in 2005 (entered as “Where did Mozart and Co Go?”).
She fell in love with Etta James, Ray Charles, The Beatles, Nat King Cole, INXS, John Butler and many others. Growing up in an extreme religious group, most music except classical and church styles was banned, so it felt like the world came alive through music in her early 30s. As a child she loved listening to the radio down low, but it didn't have the same effect on her as listening in a full room much later on.
She wrote a very little rock ditty called “Altered State of Existence” and this reached the Semi Finals of the ASA Awards in 2006.
Then at the end of 2009, a soulful r ’n b song called “The Music in People”, which has always needed collaborating with, reached the Semi Finals at the UK Songwriting Contest.
Her latest song "Waiting on a Song" is a soulful, modern croon which she began writing 5ish years ago after watching the blue estuary near where she lives. She can't afford professional demos or instruments but hopes the music will be there in the voice recording she has made.
She has also just finished writing an explosive soul number called "I am a Rolling Stone", which she began writing in 2009 and which would suit an artist with lots of soul, such as Jennifer Hudson or MJB when she is singing songs like "One".
