She has written two Number 1s and four Top 10 hits in the USA and singles in the Top 50. She has had her songs recorded by the likes of Trisha Yearwood and James Morrison among others. She's worked with producer legends such as Bill Bottrell (Sheryl Crow, Michael Jackson, Tom Petty) and Hugh Padgham (The Police, XTC, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie) as well as Giles Martin (The Beatles "Love") and Steve Earle collaborator Richard Bennett, plus she's had her music featured in films and TV (Gray's Anatomy) and has toured all over the world.
