I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on a cold Foggy morning on November 27,1981 at the old Grace Maternity Hospital. From the day I left the hospital until today music has always been a part of car travel for me. Whether it was Joan Baez, Nana Mouskouri, Rita MacNeil or Bruce Springstein we sang to them all. I’ve travelled from one end of Canada to another, across the USA, UK and Europe, music was always a part of those trips.

Through this I have developed a love of all kinds of music. When I attended our “Milne” family reunions in Eastern Ontario, my mom could always find me next to my cousin Peter Milne (who sang with the Royal Canadian Opera Company) and my other older cousins who had a love for music.
When I attended school in Valois, Quebec I was in the school choir, plays and played the clarinet in the band. At the age of 16 I decided I’d like to take voice lessons. I attended the Canadian Conservatory of Music for two years. There I performed in various recitals. Then came a chance to study with Jeri Brown the internationally renown Jazz singer. I was given the chance to perform in several of her choirs, as well as being an Assistant Stage Manager on her play “ Four Walls of Blue”. To this day Jeri remains my mentor.

I was with the Maritime Conservatory for one year, where again I entered the Kiwanis Music Festival and placed in two categories, one being the Folk song class, I sang Loch Lomond. While at the Maritime Conservatory I took clarinet lessons with Ruth Blackie for several years.

I danced in various Highland games in Quebec, Ontario, and New Hampshire for several years. I was even given the chance to dance on a float in the Montreal St Patrick’s Day Parade in 1994.

While I was growing up I volunteered by helping out for various celebrations in Nursing Homes and Senior Residences. I sang on the Christmas Telethon for the Nova Scotia Coloured Children’s Home for several years under the direction of Althea Tollivar.

Then three years ago I decided to follow my Scottish ancestors and learn to play the bagpipes. I am still learning under the direction of Liz Drury at the Halifax Citadel.

That brings me to date by my financing and recording of my first Celtic CD “CELTS UNVEILED”. What an amazing experience it has been.

I leave with you what life means “Singing is as Important as Breathing is for Me”!!!!!!!
