Ann’s career began very early on. While singing in the church choir, she attracted the attention of a local promoter and her professional career began.
A native of Washington, many of her first’s were in the Seattle area: she sang with a Motown Revue Band, a few Top 40 Bands and Jazz Trios, and even performed in a traveling show band that sent her from the Northwest to the Midwest.
On the road is where Ann says she paid some of her dues. While out on the road there was nowhere to sleep but on the tour bus along with 15 other people. A meal was hard to come by and a shower was even harder. It was a tough learning lesson, but one that was invaluable. From it came a lifetime of memories and laughter filled with friends and a unique, musical journey.
