Bio

I have always loved to sing. Like so many young girls I would sing & dance in my room with a hairbrush for a mic. I would listen to & sing along with the women of Classic Country like Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, & Crystal Gayle. This is how I taught myself to sing. I love singing the classics but country songs with a smokin' beat is where I really let loose.

I started singing in front of a live audience on a dare back in the early 80's. My first time on stage was a disaster but I took the advise of a good friend & the rest is history.

I would sing at Saturday matinees & enter contests. I had my own band for a while. I got involved in the Karaoke craze when it was popular & created my own Karaoke company but my real love was & is live music. I just had to get back to it.

I'm putting together another band, Denim Sky, so I can get back out on the stage & do what I love to do - sing & entertain. However I can still be found at jam nights & open mics - belting out some rockin' country, blues & rock 'n roll. I am very energetic & have powerful vocals. I try to bring the audience into the songs & make them feel a part of it all.

I have just released my first CD which I am very excited about. I had some amazing musicians working on it including Hal Bruce & Scott Ferguson from Halifax, Nova Scotia. The sound is down to earth & reminicent of Country Music in the 80's but will please even the toughest critics. The title of my CD was hard coming. I couldn't think of something that would be appropriate. I tried on several & nothing seemed to fit. A songwriter friend told me it would come to me when I least expected it & that is exactly what happened...I was listening to "You Are All I Dream Of" & there it was - part of a line in that song...that's how "Out Of The Blue" got it's name.
