Arlene has been in the Hotdisc Country Charts for the past two years, with her last three singles reaching No.1
A fresh New Face in Country Music
Arlene was born in the Granite City of Aberdeen, Scotland, and grew up in a household consumed with 60s and 70s music and plenty of Country. Songs from the legendary artists were continually reverberating from the family home along with the iconic pop sounds of the 70s.
For 25 years Arlene explored the world working as an international cabin crew member, however, music was her first love and it was inevitable she would concentrate on that.
Following a 10 year spell working as a duo with Doug Stewart, where they appeared on Britain’s Got Talent, and toured the world on cruise liners, Arlene decided to concentrate on country music as a solo artist, and her first solo recording project was an EP which she brought out in 2018. She performed in a mini tour with Scottish country star Ruby Rendall which gave her valuable exposure and her breakthrough song, “Right Time Right Place” which was written by former heart-throb with the New Seekers, Marty Kristian, and gave her a number 1 placing on the prestigious British & Irish Hotdisc Country chart as well as a high placing in the Hotdisc Top 40.
This was a springboard to fulfil a life-long ambition of recording in Nashville. This venture brought about the recording of six songs with some of the best musicians in the business, and the first three singles all went to Number 1 on the Hotdisc British and Irish charts, with “Bring The Curtain Down,” another single written by Marty Kristian, also making the top of the Hotdisc Top 40 as a duet with Marty.
The latest track to be released from the Nashville session is “Trouble With Twang.”
There’s no doubt about it – Arlene has arrived on the country music scene in a big way, and the future looks very rosy indeed.
