About Me

I try to convey different emotions that I feel in my heart in my music writing and studio recordings.

Life can't always be happy. Life is not always sad either. I like to have a little bit of both on each album's recordings. The melody of each song is a different life's journey for me. I start each song with something personal in my life, then embroider the specific sounds to create the mood. After that I love to surround each songs from experiences in my life.

People ask me how do I write the songs that I do. I try to write songs about personal events in my life that either moved me to laughter or tears.

Robert Frost once said, " If a story does not make the writer laugh or cry, it will not make anyone else laugh or cry either." I have also learned from listening to Janis Ian's music that if a song is true to an artist's heart, it will create a story picture in the listener's mind. I strongly agree, as a song writer, with these philosophies." Even though I do not sing on my CD's, ( yet that is ) I do write lyrics for most of my ballads. Lyrics helps complete the story of what each song is about. You'll find them on each CD page."

All the songs that I eventually end up recording on my CD's are the ones I can play over and over again and never get bored with the story they tell. That is because the songs mean so much to me personally."

Thank you for taking this musical journey of my life... with me.

Please feel free to write to me

HOW THE MUSIC GOT STARTED

Shirley's talent was discovered by accident when her brother injured his hand. Her parents bought him a theater organ to help rebuild the dexterity in his hand.
It was during that time Shirley took an interest in music from listening to her brother. Years later, her Mom decided to purchase Shirley her first synthesizer. after that...four more keyboards followed, enabling her to expand her sounds. From then on,Shirley had all the sounds she ever needed to record her music.

THE EARLY YEARS : Loss of Shirley's Parents

During her early years, life dealt Shirley her first tragic blow, her Mom became ill and passed away. A few years later she then joined a band called QUEST. They toured the U.S. and the Virgin Islands. Shortly after coming home from the tour, life once again would be unkind. Shirley lost her major source of inspiration, her dad, that built all her keyboard frames & sets for her 6 keyboards. The music died within her. She retired from the music industry and pursued a college degree in accounting finance. While attending college, a good friend mentioned that the university had a grand piano in the mansion’s ballroom at FDU. From that point on, a secret marriage developed between Cason and that baby grand piano. At night, after class, she would go to the ballroom when no one was there and fill that grand ballroom with one spirited soulful song after another. During this time is when she was able to heal her wounded spirit to be able to return to the world of music. Shirley then went on to build her recording studio, at the lake, and started her own companies,
