A lot of my inspirations, ideas,and energy are focused on the survival of the people, plants and animals of this planet. Through music we reconnect to the essential ways and movements of the natural world.
My music is a little Roots, a little Gypsy, and a little Protest... No doubt that it came from my Irish father's side of the family. I love to be outdoors in nature where all kinds of magical things are occurring every minute. And, I do believe that the leprechauns must have come into being just so humans would never forget to dream, imagine, and be creative. I came from an era that thought it was on the verge of changing the course of history by transforming the world into a global community of peace. And despite the many disappointments since then, I still carry that torch. A lot of my songs are about the human condition originating from the lives of ordinary people like myself, and are embedded in the Irish roots of balancing struggle with the joy of music. I hope my music and other creative ideas give you some comfort, joy, hope and peace.
My husband, Craig Smith, is the superb Guitarist on all of my recordings.
One of my original songs ,"I Guess You're Everywhere", from my MYSTIC DREAMS album, is featured in the movie "Like It Or Not!"(Ob ihr wollt oder nicht!) The movie was released on April 30th, 2009 in Germany, where it was produced. It is on DVD in Germany and available for distribution elsewhere.
