In 1973, with Kay Gardner and Marilyn Ries, I produced Lavender Jane Loves Women, the very first album by, for and about Lesbians in the history of the world. From then until now, I have focused on the lives, concerns and perspectives of women who love women.

Most commonly defined as "music by, for, & about women," the category of Women's Music has been entertaining and enlightening a vast network of Lesbians, our friends and supporters at concerts, festivals, conferences, gatherings and parties, on vinyl, tape, disc, and songbook since the early 1970s.
   

Now my focus is often on my 3 grandchildren (Thank you, Adrian and Chris!)
