Bio

Born on September 11, (the year doesn't matter), to Harold and Toy Wyatt, I have lived in West Jefferson N.C. all my life.

I come from a musical family. I took piano lessons at age 6, but it just wasn't my thing. My uncle, Roger Wyatt, began teaching me to play guitar at the age of 12. That I liked, so I stayed with it. Although, I didn't want to learn lead playing, just rhythm. Years later I was intrigued with the bass and began learning to play it. It is now my instrument of choice, although I do still play my guitar from time to time.

I have been in a few bands, but one of my favorites was the one that my best friend, Ginny Tedder, and I started. Unfortunately, problems with our manager caused the band to cease. Fortunately, we did get to record before that happened. My second husband,(yes, I have been married twice. The first ended in divorce, the second left me a widow, Jerry Johnson and I formed a gospel group. Ginny and her brother Jim joined us and we became "Spiritual Life". We played mainly in Galax V.A. Jerry and I recorded a cd and some of the songs are played on local radio stations here and in Virginia. After he passed away in 1998, I got away from music for awhile.

Ginny got me back into it singing with her and Jim. Plus I started going back to the Friday night pickin's at Greenfield Campground. There I met Bill Reed who asked me to join with him and Steve Boulis to form a group. I played the bass and sang. During that time, Mike Little (who's web-site you are now on) joined us. It lasted a couple of years, then we called it quits.

Mike and I are in the process of forming a group. At the moment it's just us. He plays banjo, guitar, dobro, and sings. I play bass and sing. We do a variety of music, from bluegrass to southern rock (which we have bluegrassed-up), country, and gospel.

I have one son, Stephen, who is a very talented guitar player and hopes to pursue his music. I also have one brother, Kenny, who lives in Japan at the present time. As far as I know, he hasn't picked up his guitar in years. But that's okay, I still love him anyway
