Lady Dove

"Lady Dove"
Why this name?
The MC lost his artist lineup sheet & couldn't remember my name...
He turned to my Daughter who was standing beside him on the other side of the stage & asked who I was?
She just looked at him & said: "That's my Guitar Pickin Mama!"
That's how I was introduced & it seems to have stuck...
Kids, gotta love em...

"Lady Dove" is the name I was gifted by Lakota Winyan Wakan Elder

It's the Musicland Roller Coaster Ride I call Home...
"Lets Ride"
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Great tool!
Yes, I can definately see The Indie Revolution kicken in full tilt boogie!

It also lets you find & explore some of the great talent that has been held at the back of the pack for way to long...
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
That's a hard one, would depend on the deal.
I enjoy being a Free Spirit Indie Artist with creative control of my own music.
