A brief history

Maureen Gray began singing at the age of three, and performed solo in a children’s program at Carnegie Hall at the age of five. Discovered by John Madara at the young age of 12, she went on to record and achieved success with regional hits such as “Today’s The Day,” “Crazy Over You,” “I Don’t Want to Cry” and “Dancing The Strand.”

 

John's memories

Maureen Gray walked into my record shop in Philly and told me she could sing. Well, she was right! Boy could she sing! She was only 12 years old but already she had developed an amazing set of chops. Dave White and I wrote and produced 15 songs with her, with 2 of our songs reaching the charts, “Today’s The Day” and “Dancing The Strand."

 

what happened next?

Maureen went on to work with such greats as Arranger Paul Buckmaster, and sang with Billy Preston, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, David Bowie, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, just to name a few.

Maureen Gray continues her career as a singer/songwriter, going by the name “Girl,” which originated with a group she formed called Girl Talk.
