Band/artist history
I've been performing since I was a little girl. It was always about ELVIS from the very beginning and along the way grew into a massive respect and love for Country and Folk music by Joan Baez. As I grew that also morphed into Musical Theatre and Movie Show Tunes. I grew up in a small theatre company in our home town and that broadened my horizons. I started in the music business predominantly in 1993 shortly after my brother John's death --- as did my brother Bob and my sister Anne. It was our way of coping. While my professional career began as a dancer, singing was something that always came VERY easy to me, whereas dancing was a talent I had to work at.
