Multipersonalitied recording artist Fiona hails from NJ, USA. Pushed on stage by desperate teachers since first grade because of her unusually loud speaking voice and complete lack of stage fright she was handed a shillelagh, a clarinet and finally a microphone. Cast as a singing bandleader in the high school play she knew immediately her destiny. Encouraged by her father to be a newscaster or a nun she ignored this advice and moved to NYC. The normal series of demos with Eddy Offord and The Dixie Dregs and a day job with iconic photographer Andrew Unangst led to her Atlantic Records debut.

Talk to Me, produced by local hero Peppi Marchello of The Good Rats, was an out of the box sensation and the MTV rotation caught the eye of Miami Vice producers where she was kept awake for 158 hours to star as Jackie in the New York Times hailed Little Miss Dangerous episode of the hit TV show. Two more albums on Atlantic and then a jump to Geffen for the AOR melodic rock smash Squeeze album followed. Along the way she dueted with her friend Kip Winger on the radio/MTV most requested hit Everything You Do and starred with Bob Dylan and Rupert Everett in the movie Hearts of Fire.

Now, after a hiatus (during which she got married, graduated from UCLA, worked for the late great Danny Sugerman and the Doors, got hired away by PriceWaterhouse then retired six weeks later to reproduce (first one child, then another) here is the return of one of the early Queens of Rock.
