Disability Talk – Scottish Musician Born Profoundly Deaf

Posted by admin222 Category: Lady Geraldine News

The life of Geraldine Elliott feels like a work of fiction, with every combination of heartache and achievement; it epitomises the strength of a woman who went from being profoundly deaf as a child, to discovering sound after an operation in her early twenties. That ignited her love of music in a way no-one who has always been able to hear could possibly imagine.

Add to that an abusive and violent marriage, followed her resurgence as a celebrated entrepreneur and you are just about starting to get a true understanding as to why she has become such an inspirational figure. Her latest album Fast Cars & Movie Stars, is her most accomplished yet, marrying stellar production with melodic riffs and lady G’s signature, crystalline vocals.

Fast Cars & Movie Stars is in many ways the album Lady Geraldine has always been destined to make. Always one foot rooted in her life experiences, she sets off on a theatrical, sometimes eerie journey through the self-destructive nature of love, the shattered American Dream and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit.

The strange other worldliness of Hollywood glamour is the perfect backdrop to Lady Geraldine’s songs, her own story packing in more cliff-hangers and twists in the tale than any number of blockbusters.
