Listings from Taxi and Dispatch are a great motivation and source of inspiration. They have me writing in genres I never imagined I could. Previously, my writing experience was mostly hymns and sacred songs. While I enjoy the challenge of writing both music and lyrics, I also like collaborating. I'd be happy to collaborate with other lyricists and/or composers, as it takes me in different directions. I am fond of epic film themes (Ennio Morricone, John Williams) and romantic songs (Michel Legrand, Johnny Mandel), as well as the Great American Songbook, which was a big influence on my developing ears. The Bergmans are one of the finest lyric writing teams IMHO. It's my dream to write a song that might become a classic. I'm up for writing a musical ... if I can find a strong enough story line, but would settle for a Disney love song or timeless Christmas song! I live in Sydney, Australia with my best friend/musician/sound engineer/producer husband, Miles. He is my mentor and sounding board, my other set of ears. My music would be much less without his skills. One of my dreams is to attend a Taxi road rally with him!
