Slave is about a little girl who suffers from her parents not having any time for her and how that takes away our most precious human resource, our sense of belonging. There's a new term called 'economic orphan' and it describes children who are left behind or abandoned by their parents out of economic demand! In the end the little girl Sue, from my song, becomes an 'economic slave' herself and so the circle closes.....that's why I have invited children to sing with me: "... We are slave to economy......"

She was fascinated with all the creativity that surrounded her and participated as a background singer at concerts in the New York underground scene. This early inspiration laid the foundation for her musical development as an artist. From then on, she has worked with successful producers songwriters and musicians across the planet in Nashville, NYC, LA, Germany, London and Sydney to develop her own musical handwriting.
