Hello my singing Family and Most beautiful, sharing and caring, circle of friends!!

I'm very glad you took the time to pass by my SingSnap Studio where I share with you and every single person here. a love for singing and..having such an amazing venue as SingSnap. For me, it's a cosy, comfortable place to sing my heart out, where I share my love and emotion and sentimentality and as much personality as I can be comfortable doing. I truly hope you enjoy a song or two, get to know me a wee bit and don't be as shy as I can be and say hello :
)
I just wanted to take a moment to share a bit about myself and upbringing with you, as this is where 'my heart first sang out loud'.
I was born in Northern, Ontario, Canada and moved to Florida at approx. age of 4 or 5 years..then on to West Virginia...then back to Canada ...then back to Ohio, Illinois,short stints and summers in Indiana and West Virginia, just to name a few!!
Right now I live in the beauty of Southern Ontario, Canada.

My dad was an engineer and we traveled a great deal during my childhood, throughout the U.S...But no matter where we went or for how long, he always managed to start up a band and they played the local taverns sometimes on weekends..My dad currently resides in Ohio, where in his retirement, he owned a Country Music Tavern for many years.
I started singing when I was a very young girl, my father being my greatest influence. He sang only country music and although he had his very own crisp and distinct voice, he sounded like Merle Haggard and Hank Snow to me, lol.. he played many instruments, including my favorite, pedal steel guitar..but his favorite was definitely self-taught guitar..he could play anything and had chords and key changes, mastered! I am his biggest fan in the entire world..
..as well as my mother..I often dedicate songs that I sing to her (she passed at the young age of 45 years).I miss her so very much..My bestie..

I sing here today because I need a nice place to vent whats pent..hahaha..in gratitude and dedication to my father and mother, for instilling their love for country music in me. My mom was also a Country & Western music lover..she'd play album after album of Tammy, Loretta and Patsy and so many others while doing Saturday laundry and housecleaning..so I truly got more than my share of Country style music..it's where you share your heart.
Singing has truly brought my life so much joy and happiness...is something that I feel is such a part of who I am and I relate to nice memories of time spent with my mom. I sing to her in Heaven above, for she was MY biggest fan..She also encouraged me and I would always sing her fav Tammy, Reba and all the country songs she loved..I do that here too, lol....and I believe many of you feel the very same...

Well, Thank goodness, for this wonderful venue...SingSnap..where we can all share what we love so very much. I love this place~!.
Thank you once again, for listening, talking to me and commenting on my singing..It truly makes my life feel fantastic!

Sincerely,
Your friend,
Shelley
