Biography

Easton was the youngest of six children of a steel mill laborer, Alex Orr, and his wife Annie. Her siblings included brothers Robert and Alex and sisters Marilyn, Annessa and Morag. Her earliest known public performance as a singer was at the age of five, when in 1964 she sang "Early One Morning" for her uncle and aunt and various relatives at the couple's 25th wedding anniversary celebration.


In 1969, Easton's father died. Her mother took on work as a laborer to support the family. Easton's web site states that her mother was always available for her children, despite her tremendous workload: "Sheena always speaks very highly of her mom and the wonderful job she did in raising her and her siblings, including teaching each of them all to read at home before they were even enrolled in school."


She had not seriously considered entering upon a singing career until a viewing of the movie The Way We Were, with Barbra Streisand. Streisand's singing over the opening credits "overtook" the young Scottish girl and convinced her that what she wanted most was to be a singer and to have that kind of effect on others. Her top grades in school earned her a scholarship to attend the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama in Glasgow, and she trained there from 1975 to 1979 as a speech and drama teacher by day, while singing with a band called 'Something Else' by night at local clubs. She chose to study teaching rather than performing, because it was a course of study that would let her perfect her craft as a singer. The Way We Were is a 1973 film which tells the story of an intense Jewish woman who marries a carefree WASP following World War II. Fundamental differences in the way they engage the world – as revealed in their responses to the rise of McCarthyism – eventually pull them apart. ...

In 1979, she married Sandi Easton, the first of four husbands. They divorced after eight months, but Sheena decided to keep the surname Easton. That year, Esther Rantzen, producer of the BBC programme The Big Time selected Easton as the subject of a documentary film planned to chronicle a relative unknown's rise to pop-music stardom, after one of her Academy instructors coaxed her into auditioning. Her talent persuaded reluctant EMI executives to award her a contract, and Christopher Neil was assigned as her recording producer. Deke Arlon became her first manager, and Easton spent much of 1980 being followed by camera crews, who filmed her throughout the process of making her first EMI single, "Modern Girl."

Her second marriage, in 1984, was to Rob Light, a talent agent, but ended after 18 months. Easton earned U.S. citizenship in 1992 and adopted her first child, Jake in 1994. Two years later, she adopted again, this time a baby girl named Skylar. In the summer of 1997, she met producer Tim Delarm, while filming an episode of ESPN Canon Photo Safari in Yellowstone National Park and later married Delarm in Las Vegas July of 1997. The marriage lasted one year. In 2001, she became engaged to John Minoli, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon and married him on November 9, 2002. They divorced in 2003 and Easton has been a single mother to her two children since and currently resides in Las Vegas.

Career Overview 1980's

A screenshot of "9 to 5".

Her first single, the disco-tinged soft-synth-pop tune "Modern Girl," was released in the UK before the show aired and reached a disappointing #56. At the end of the show, Sheena was still unsure of her future as a singer, but the question was soon resolved when, after the show aired, her second single, "9 To 5," soared up the UK Singles Chart to #3 in 1980. "Modern Girl" re-entered the chart subsequently and climbed into the top 10, and Easton, who had just a few months earlier been a virtual unknown, now found herself with two songs in the top 10 simultaneously. Sheena was voted Best British Female Singer by the "Daily Mirror Pop & Rock Awards" in 1980, "Best Newcomer" 1980 by Capital Radio, and "Best Female Singer" 1980 by the "TV Times Readers Awards". In the UK Sheena Easton success has earned 8 top 40 hits and 3 top 40 albums to date. Image File history File links Eastonscreen. ... Image File history File links Eastonscreen. ...

9 To 5 was Easton's first single release in the United States, although it was renamed "Morning Train (Nine To Five)" for its release in the U.S. and Canada to avoid confusion with Dolly Parton's hit movie title song "9 to 5." "Morning Train" became Easton's only #1 hit in the U.S. and topped both the Billboard Hot 100 and Adult Contemporary charts in Billboard magazine. "Modern Girl" was released as the follow-up and peaked at #18, and before 1981 was over Sheena had a top 10 hit in both the U.S. and UK with the Academy Award-nominated James Bond movie theme "For Your Eyes Only."

Easton's first three U.S. albums, Sheena Easton, You Could Have Been With Me, and Madness, Money and Music, were all in the same soft rock/adult contemporary pop vein (although she made a grab for the dance audience with "Machinery," from the latter album), but by the end of 1982, with British synthesizer bands taking over the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, she saw her sales slumping.

The song also appeared on her next album The Lover In Me, a gold-selling disc released the following autumn that put Easton back on the charts. This album features Urban R&B and Dance-pop. The title song from "The Lover In Me" reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 and became her biggest pop hit since "Morning Train." It also became a #5 hit on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles and Trackschart.
