About Maureen McGovern
A native of Ohio, McGovern grew up in the country town of Youngstown
and was introduced to music at a young age by her father's local vocalist group. Maureen took an immediate liking to singing,
practicing her craft before she was even four years old and making a firm decision to become a famous singer by the age of
eight. Following her role models and inspirations Dionne Warwick and Barbra Streisand, Maureen's next decade would consist
of single minded dedication to achieving her dream of becoming a famous musician, a goal that would materialize gradually
over her young adult life.
As a secretary fresh out of high school, Maureen hit the local tour circuit as the vocalist
in a folk band called Sweet Rain. She would capture the eyes and ears of 20th Century Records in 1972, and under the tutelage
of producer Russ Regan she would record her first major single "The Morning After". McGovern became an overnight success,
topping charts all around and winning a best original song award at the Oscars, which was immediately followed by a Grammy
nomination in 1974 for Best New Artist.
Her musical talents would soon see her courted to the big screen for recordings
and appearances in two major motion pictures, including The Towering Inferno and Gold. Her recordings for both films would
go on to make waves all across the music spectrum, and would ride that wave of success until dire financial straits in the
mid 70s. Taking a break from singing, Maureen lived under inauspicious means as a secretary while going by the pseudonym Glenda
No secretary job could contain Maureen's talent for long, as she soon began acting and recording once again,
becoming a full swing Broadway performer by the mid 1980s. She starred in a slew of on and off Broadway musicals, including
Little Women, Brownstone, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music. Her career continues today, complemented by occasional album
releases and constant trips to the Grammys and other musical award shows as accolades rain down upon her with each and every
Maureen's breakout album would come on the 20th Century album, a 1973 release under
the production tutelage of the visionary Carl Maduri. The album would be an overnight success, egged on as a followup to Maureen's
hit single "The Morning After", which would spawn a full length album by the same name. The album climbed to the #77 position
on the Billboard 200, and featured the #1 hit "The Morning After" as well as the top 100 hit "I Won't Last a Day Without You".
three decades later, Maureen would show she hasn't lost an ounce of her drive, talent, or masterful vocal performances with
the 2008 full length A Long and Winding Road. This time produced under the watchful eye of Jeffrey Lesser, the album features
Maureen's own renditions of some of the most fundamental songs of musical Americana, including Bob Dylan's "The Times They
Are a-Changin'", Paul Simon's "America", and John Lennon's "Imagine".
Maureen's musical career
nearly came to a disastrous end early on not because of any fault of her own, but because of a predatory music industry culture
that took advantage of women performers. 40% of Maureen's profits were funneled to her manager, and Maureen was left to pay
for her band's salary out of her own pocket regardless of whether they had performances schedule or not.
