I am a singer/songwriter based in NYC. I'm one of the very, very rare people who was lucky enough to get signed by sending a demo in the mail. Eddie O"Loughlin, President of Next Plateau/Polygram, heard my voice and arranged for me to come to his offices in New York City. I'd always imagined something like that would happen to me but looking back it is quite amazing that the events transpired as they did....most unsolicted material gets thrown straight in the trash. I remember thinking that I had really made it - fame and fortune seemed to have landed in my lap...boy was I in for a big surprise. I recorded my first album under the name "RadioVenus". My producer, John and I were a dance music duo in the vein of Utah Saints/Sunscream. I spent a few months in the studio and fell in love with the recording process. We had completed the album and were about to begin filming a video when Next Plateau and Polygram decided to part ways. I was pretty devastated. I had a choice of staying with Next Plateau or going to work with Polygram. At that point I had grown very fond of Eddie O and could not imagine having a career without him. So, a year later Eddie formed a new partnership with Roadrunner/RED and my solo career was born. We put out a single in 1997 which was a cover of the song "Set It Off". The song did very well in the clubs but failed to make it up the charts. When Next Plateau and Roadrunner agreed to terminate their partnership, I took a break. By this time I was eager to learn how to write songs - I'd always had little melodies and words running through my head but no avenue for their release. I was introduced to a number of NYC songwriters - Sandy Fredrickson, Kit Hain, Jimmy Greco - and began to write. A publishing contract with Machola Music in the UK soon followed. I've had a number of cuts in Europe and a few in the US. I had wrote and sang "Let me feel your arms around me" under the name Boulevard East. Boulevard East was the group created by Giuseppe D (one of my favorite songwriters/remixers). The song went to number 1 in Greece and Spain and did very well here in the States. At the end of 2003 my solo career got a bit of action when my song "American Girl" was released by Next Plateau/Universal. The song was inspired by the Dixie Chicks backlash after speaking out against President Bush....some people don't understand the irony behind the song and I've been told that I get a lot of airplay from a very right winged, lesbian DJ (how you can be right wing and a lesbian I have no idea) who uses the song as her opener. Needless to say - she doesn't get the song either.
Recently, i've taken a little break to start a new adventure, have a child and concentrate on family - but I'm still writing and hoping to be presenting some new material soon - some of my own songs, some music that I hope will eventually be sung by another artist and a few songs inspired by being a mom. Songs for you, my son and all your little friends around the world..
