I started writing music in the last decade. Listings from Taxi and Dispatch are a great motivation and source of inspiration. They have me wanting to write 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 explored choral arranging with our church choir. I'd be happy to collaborate with 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 standard fare in our home when I was growing up. The Bergmans are one of the finest lyric writing teams to have blessed my ears. 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 classic 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 very stunted without his skills. One of my dreams is to be at a Taxi road rally with him!
