A little about her background....
'I started singing at age 3, and haven't stopped yet! When I was 12, I began playing the violin. That soon led to the guitar and eventually the mandolin. In high school, I began to write songs for Folk Masses and other church services. Ignoring a strong calling to compose full time, I actively pursued a career in theatre, film, radio and TV.
I have performed with professional regional theatres such as Center Stage, Alaska Repertory Theatre and Meadowbrook Theatre. I was a principal cast member of the Emmy award winning TV series for PBS called Once Upon a Town. In 1980 I joined the theatre faculty of the Baltimore School for the Arts and since 1981 I have been a member of the Interact Story Theatre.
In 1994 my original calling to compose meditational songs of a spiritual nature could be ignored no longer. Turning the process over to God, I spent 4 years composing music and began recording in 1998. With the guidance and support of my husband, Pete Baden, I have recorded and produced 7 albums since then; all of which are receiving airplay throughout the world. What a journey. God has prepared me for this role all these years. When I look back it's just like a quilt. This is just what I should be doing. I'm happiest when doing this kind of service.'
