Biography

I've been no stranger to the stage from as early as 6 years old. I have played in my hometown Port Hood and other venues in and around Nova Scotia. Including performances at Country Jamborees in Nine Mile River, NS. I have performed at at World Famous Tootsie's in Nashville , TN. One of the best moments of my life. I have released a cd called "timing" in 2006 and just recently released a second called 'Follow Your Heart". I have a strong country sound. I have been singing in harmony with my father for years to the sounds of Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton. These are just some of my influences growing up . Emmylou Harris, George Jones were some of the many artists. I had an opportunity this past summer to record in Nashville TN. with my producer Lonnie Ratliff. The experience was top notch. My session musicians were Steve Holland, Vaughn Lofstead, Dave Martin, Rodger Morris, Jason Roller, Perley Curtis, T.J Klay and Harmony singers, Christy Cornelius and Jess Favaro. These musicians are no strangers to the music business. I work closely with my record producer, Lonnie Ratliff and my record label Westwood Int'l Records.

Lyrics

Follow Your Heart

Written By: Lonnie Ratliff/Vaughn Lofstead

Follow Your Heart

They say that lifes a mystery with her secrets hidden deep
From the paupers to the kings we're all the same in what we seek
What's the meaning of our lives is it written in some book
I can't say I know the answers but I know where to look... Just

Follow your heart follow your dreams
Don't waste your time on worldly things
You only pass through once so if you plan to leave your mark
Follow your dream follow your heart

When your standing at the crossroads knowing not which way to turn
Point your heart toward the rainbow remember all the lessons learned

Follow your heart follow your dreams
Don't waste your time on worldly things
You only pass through one so if you plan to leave your mark
Follow your dream follow your heart

Follow your dream follow your heart.

You Never Know How Its Gonna Go With Love

Written By: Lonnie Ratliff

There was a time that I believed
We'd beat the odds and make a go at love
I thought we'd rewrite history with Romeo and Juliet next to us
And I know that you thought the same
Saw it in your eyes and felt in your touch
But we both learned a hard life lesson
You never know how its gonna go with love

You never know how its gonna go with love
It might go on forever
But that's not up to us
Ol Cupid is a fickle one
And sometimes that arrow won't stay stuck
Just look at us
You never know how its gonna go with love

Sometimes love is picture perfect
Like a Prince and Princess in a fairy tale
Sometimes love goes on forever
And sometimes it just goes to .... Show

There was a time that I believed
We'd beat the odds and make a go at love

When It Comes To You

Written By: Lonnie Ratliff/Jim L. Carter

I don't go out of my way just to go against the grain
When the warning lights are flashing I don't try to beat the train
I'm not into to bungee jumping, sky diving ain't my sport
But when you walked into my life my good sense walked out the door

When it comes to you there's no telling what I'll do
I've surprised all of my friends and myself a time or two
You'd think that I'd no better and to tell the truth I do
But what I know ain't what I do when it comes to you

You're everything I never wanted all rolled up in one
All those things I said I'd never do thanks to you I've done
You're the perfect bad example and mama worst night mare
My eyes can see right through but my heart don't seem to care

Chorus

Sometimes I look at me and see a stranger
I'm doin things I'd never do in the past
I'm letting my heart lead, laughing at the dangers
Living for a moment and trusting it will last

Chorus

What I know ain't what I do when it comes to you
When it comes to you, when it comes to you.....fade
