"I Want To Get To Heaven But I Don't Want To Die". At the moment it's on, where it's played regularly in a host of podshows



I was walking in Goa, India, on a bright night with brilliant stars, feeling a bit of a lemon. To my right was a Muslim boy and to my left a Hindu girl, both of whom had the serious hots for each other. All three of us knew it was not meant to be. Into the velvety air to no one in particular but to her absolutely the boy said “…I want to get to heaven but I don’t want to die…” Cue for an album title, thought I…

Which took forever to finish, recording in two continents and three studios, and with the collaboration of a host of wonderful musicians, friends, acquaintances and passers by. I ended up being the writer, performer, producer, engineer and general one woman band, not through any specific kind of megalomania, but simply because it was expedient.

I’m a British singer originally from London and now living in San Francisco, where I gig and run a recording studio.

I worked for many years in London where I ran a successful band with fellow musician Terry Disley (successful in the Jazz field. The band toured and was recorded for TV and radio and played at the London club Ronnie Scotts etc). I also attended the Guildhall School of Music at this time and worked as a session singer.

In 1990 I joined the British band the Moody Blues and toured the US with them until 1999, when I decided to move to the States.
