Miss Hope SprIngs
I may still be wearing the sequins and feathers I left the Pink Pelican Casino with in 1972, but I'm sure to leave you spellbound (and possibly speechless) with my scandalous showbiz tales from my 'Ritz to the pits life'. You'll hear my unique blend of finger-snapping pop, romantic rhumbas and sassy Bossa Novas as I take you on a rollercoaster ride , spilling the beans on my erm 'unusual' lovelife (Liberace, Noel Coward and Barry Manilow were just a few of the guys who got away)my erm 'interesting' career choices ( I turned down the role of Samantha in I Dream of Genii for a spot on a wintercruise...around Siberia!) and i now live with my husband Iriving and his close personal pal Carlos in a camper van in Dungeness.
I'll tinkle the ivories and hypnotise you with songs from my multiple (mostly unreleased) LPs including Je m'appelle Hope, Miss Hope Springs Swings with Strings, Das ist Miss Hope Springs and my 1972 Memphis Album which I was lucky enough to record in High Wycombe.
Join me as I pack my suitcase of dreams and take you on a trip down my, by now somewhat potholed, memory lane.
