Thanks to legendary Northern Soul DJ RUSS WINSTANLEY the single Lorraine recorded for PYE RECORDS in 1965 ‘LOST SUMMER LOVE’ became an iconic track at the legendary WIGAN CASINO in the 70’s without her knowledge. Due to high public demand the single was re-released on Casino Classics label  in 1978 and sold in excess of 30,000 copies. 

In 2004 she recorded a brand new album of Northern Soul anthems ‘The Northern Soul Sessions’ which still sells well on download today under the new title ‘Northern Soul Diva’. This includes  the Burt Bacharach/Hal David penned ‘LONG AFTER TONIGHT IS ALL OVER ‘ which was always one of the last three records played at Wigan. 

’LOST SUMMER LOVE’ is still a much loved record on the Northern Soul & Scooter scene today and is featured on numerous download & CD compilations. Original copies are extremely rare and are sought after by record collectors 

She is now recording new Northern Soul tracks under the wing of one of the original pioneers of Northern Soul Ian Levine 

In 2018 she released on the Rochester Hills label her first single STANDING AT THE INTERSECTION /THE BEST TIME OF MY LIFE  this was followed up in 2021 with FEVER RAGING OUT OF CONTROL /THE LAST TO KNOW  and her latest single in 2022 SUNNY DAY /TWO WAY STREET which has received extensive airplay.
