Ever since I was young, music has been a part of my life.
My first instrument was a gift of a guitar from my parents, and then I moved onto keyboards. At one point I even played a little on the drums, but my passion has always been singing.
Early on I performed concerts for Girl Scouts, several outdoor shows, and even at a friend’s wedding. I recorded several tracks at a small country recording studio in the late 90's. This had been a lifelong dream which I could finally say I accomplished.
Life changes then bought me from Australia to the United States and my new friends encouraged me to take up singing once again. Now being a Long Haul Truck driver, I figured this would give me plenty of time to practice, so I thought… why not!
My first project when I returned to the recording studio, this time in the United States, was to record three songs to be played at a friend’s memorial service. This was then followed that up with a Christmas album that was given out as a Christmas gift for friends. My music was becoming popular and friends wanted more and more!
In 2014 I was selected as a finalist in the Overdrive Magazine's "Trucker Talent Search" and following this opportunity I realized that my sights were now set on releasing songs outside of my circle of friends and go public.
A few years ago I became an American Citizen, thus becoming dual citizen with Australia; my country of birth.
My first album, "Home Away From Home" is a collection of some of my favorite songs from both Australia and the USA. Yes! I am still considered an "Aussie" by my friends, but I am also recognized as an American following completion of citizenship in 2010. This album is a fun way for me to show the love I have for both countries and the reason why I call both my "Home Away From Home"
My new single "I Became an American" tells the story of how it felt to me, to become an American citizen. How grateful and proud it feels to be a part of this great nation!
I hope you will join me as I continue my journey towards my music goals.
