Brief bio not in their words:
I grew up in the Alaskan wilderness.
I was determined to make my living by music no matter what that as a six year old I was performing in Eskimo villages with my Dad.
I had spent many winters before my teens honing my craft at the Anchorage.
I quit my day job as a waitress before I was even in my twenties in order to live out of a van to tour the states and perform my original music.

GUESSED WHO I AM YET?
I once said: "In silence you hear who you are becoming, you create yourself."
I landed a Thursday night gig at my local bar where I would charge listeners $3 to listen to my original music and storytelling for four hours a night.
I had made and composed 100 original songs while I was unsigned before I turned 20
I lived on peanut butter and carrots for my lunches while I would later perform on streets
I have been busting my ovaries (balls) since 1989 but only got my commercial breakthrough in 1995
I established a non-profit humanitarian organisation with my mother called Higher Ground for Humanity
I once said: "Cynicism isn't smarter, it's only safer. There's nothing fluffy about optimism."
I brought the folk back to the masses
HAVE YOU GUESSED WHO I AM YET?
