Kathleen was signed to RCA Records, and the Cherry Vanilla Band was created in London. Before splitting, the band released the albums ‘Bad Girl’ and ‘Venus D’Vinyl’. Blue Roses (with Man Parrish) was her other album. She is a well-known writer in addition to her singing career. Her autobiography, ‘Lick Me: How I Became Cherry Vanilla,’ was released in October 2010 by the Chicago Review Press. She has also starred in many TV shows and movies like Let’s Get Lost, David Bowie & the Story of Ziggy Stardust, and ‘Imagine’.
