“I was born in 1958 so I grew up during the sixties and seventies in Flint, Michigan. Lots of changes took place there and around the world during that time—mostly in ways we relate to one another. My first musical memories are of the radio hits of the fifties. I was hooked. Then a musical revolution ensued in the sixties and seventies that continues to influence the shapes and topics of my songs. Music is my joy and passion. I love writing songs and I love singing them."
