Feeling a bit camera shy


You might think I am exaggerating when I tell you that I started singing from the moment I was born…ok, not from birth, but soon after, I was starting to communicate through song. I was born and raised in a small town in Eastern Ontario (Napanee) and being the last of 5 kids at home, I had to entertain myself a lot of the time so music became my best friend. My house was always filled with music and at an early age my mother realized that I could recall and sing the songs I had heard on the radio. Loretta Lyn, Patsy Cline, Reba McIntyre, and Tammy Wynette - these girls could sing and I wanted to sing just like them!! I would sit on my swing and practice my songs, so sure that one day I would be singing for huge audiences all over the world.

My first singing appearance in front of a live audience took place at the tender age of four at a company Christmas party. I couldn't remember the words so they gave me the lyrics, which would have been helpful if I could read. In grade one I sang at my elementary school talent show - I didn't quite remember all the words but I was in tune!!! Soon I was performing at school functions, talent contests, weddings and community events. My first television appearance was at the age of 12 on CKWS TV in Kingston, Ontario.

Following several years of post-secondary education, I found myself giving up on any chance of singing for a career, after all what chance did a girl from a little town in Ontario have right? Enter Avril Lavigne and with her rising success I found myself thinking what if? What if I never tried and spent the rest of my life wondering if I could have made it? In 2003 I entered and secured a showcase spot at Nashville Star Search where I was a finalist. At this time I was a singer and had never thought about writing my own material. I met with some record labels who encouraged me to try to write my own material…. so in December 2003 I wrote my first song.

At the beginning of 2004 I started performing with a local band (The Jim Patterson Band) and had the opportunity to open for several established artists including Lisa Brokop, Jason McCoy, Prairie Oyster, Jeff Healey and Julian Austin. I continued to write in 2004 and during the fall of that year I started to work with some great local musicians who have been instrumental in the whole process of writing and recording my original songs, which will be released in the fall of 2006.

What lies ahead? I hope that the release of my cd will gather attention of the music industry and more importantly that people who hear my songs will like what I have written. My ultimate goal is to end up in Nashville with the opportunity to write, record and perform my songs. I feel like I am on a road trip and where I might end up ….well the possibilities are endless!! So for now I am just going to work real hard at making the best cd that I can and sit back and enjoy the ride. After all ..getting there is half the fun!
