Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Harriet Schock is an American singer, songwriter, teacher, author, and actress. She made three albums for a major label in the 70s, scoring gold and platinum awards for her Grammy-nominated Ain't No Way to Treat a Lady, before moving into teaching and soundtrack work, and then resuming an ongoing recording career in the 90s. Schock, whose father was a dermatologist, grew up in Texas as one of two sisters, and was encouraged to play piano from an early age. Her natural ability to play by ear quickly became apparent. After a brief spell working in advertising, Schock became a staff writer for Colgems-EMI, and, in a deal that fell through, almost became a Columbia Records recording artist. Shortly thereafter, she signed with 20th Century Records, and her recording career began in earnest, with a series of three albums, Hollywood Town, She's Low Clouds (both 1974), and You Don't Know What You're In For (1976), all notable for their pithy lyrical approach, and musical incisiveness. On the strength of these recordings, Schock was twice awarded Cashbox's Best New Female Artist.show more
