As a youthful lady in 1969 I discovered my approach to the Blues stage in the initial Ann Arbor
Blues Fest, and was entirely smitten. Tunes had captivated me and that i experienced actually
identified my calling. Following a short stint on Broadway I'd the opportunity to land a
recording agreement on Motown Data to report a duo album with Meatloaf, known as Stoney and Meatloaf.
My time at Motown was wonderful and following these many many years in LA, I had been
invited to record and tour with my old good friend, Bob Seger, what an honor!
For the duration of a hiatus with Bob, I had been questioned if Iâd be interested in coming to
document the backing vocals on Eric Claptonâs âBehind The Sunâ album. We recorded
this excellent report, and Eric questioned me if Iâd like to do the tour, it absolutely was way too very good to be
It was on Bob Segerâs tour in â86 which i satisfied Monthly bill Payne and Fred Tackett, two from the
members of the legendary band Little Feat. A little right after recording on the re-grouped
bandâs CD, Permit It Roll, they questioned me to affix being a entire member in 93â, and for the following
practically 16 years, it was my house.
It absolutely was following this stint with Little Feat which i realized Iâd arrive entire circle back again to where
I started, in the world in the Blues.

In the Year, and also earn Ideal Modern day Blues Album Of the Calendar year for my launch of
Request The Moon, at the same time as a few Grammy nominations.
With my most recent launch, Mighty Gates, created a cross genre CD of which I wrote 7 from the tunes, and incorporated a couple from my favored artists. Dobie Grey had sent me âMighty Gatesâ a little above 5 several years back, and that i considered it an ideal in shape for the occasions!
