The Songs

The Stilettos consisted of me on lead vocals, harmonies and rhythm guitar, Tommy on lead guitar and backing vocals, Alan on bass guitar and Cliff on drums.

It was 1978, we were young and ambitious, music seemed the best way forward and it was definitely exciting!

My songs are about daily life, being in love and relationships, the haves and have-nots, people in lifestyles they’d rather not be in, about having fun, seeing favourite bands and dancing til dawn.

I am moving along my music career, to showcase other styles and genres. First though, have a listen to new release “People of today” below, a real crowd-pleaser when I gigged with The Stilettos. Don’t worry, there are still a few more songs to come from The Stilettos!

“Special to me” is a new mini-album of songs with a distinct 80’s vibe. A small collection of songs from my back catalogue. This is the starting point of an exciting decade, a taste of what’s to come over the few months. The title track was a favourite of my Mam’s!
