Growing up, there was always music in my house.  My father played the

bassoon and my mother played the cello and string bass.


I loved the folk music of the sixties, so I taught myself to play the guitar, based

upon my knowledge of the violin, and I learned all my songs by ear from

listening to records.

New CD's abound!  Sleep Like Fish and Goslee Reed & Kean's live CD in 2017-2018.


The year 2012 brought a new CD to the proverbial table.   plenty  

is a cornucopia of songs about the earth, the garden, planting trees,

feeding the soul, love and loss and much more.  It is also a fund raiser

for Black River Middle School in Sullivan, Ohio to support mental

health  in memory of a friend's grandson, Wesley Garrett.


In the efforts of recording "plenty" a band was formed!  FIREFLY is the name and consists of me (of course!), Tom Martin on bass and

piano, and Skip Trask on drums.  Join us this summer for outdoor gigs - perhaps you will see fireflies then too!                    



My CD, It’s About Time is a tribute to my dad, George Goslee, 

former principal bassoonist with the Cleveland Orchestra.

You can also hear his bassoon on two other CDs: Like The

Light of the Moon and Cowboy on the Highway.

Songfest CD

For many years I have been

involved with Camp Nuhop, a

camp for children with special



The Songfest CD

includes all the songs I

have sung at camp celebrations in the past 25 years!  $5 from each CD sale

goes to the endowment fund for the camp.  Find out about the camp experience






Two artist-in-residence projects with elementary schools have

produced two fun and educational

CDs of songs written and sung by children -

Songs of Science and School Rocks!

You can hear those songs on the music page,

as well as in some of my shows.







Over twenty years ago, Lisa Biales and I formed

the award-winning duo Prairie Orchid.  

We loved performing music for children and families., and our songs are available on three different CD's: Pocket Full of Lizards,

Plant a Little Seed and New Day.

As for the classical music where it all started...

I still play violin in my local symphony orchestra.   My education has

even been put to use several times by being a microbiologist. 

However I have retired from micro to devote time to my family,

garden, pets...oh yes and to singing, writing and playing music!! 


Rounding out my days, I volunteer as a bluebird monitor through the

environmental center at Kenyon College and at SPI, our local science

play space where all ages learn about science through play. 


I live in rural Mount Vernon, Ohio with my husband and numerous pets

and garden friends.
