Born: Milinka Viorii, though she adopted the sobriquet “Lady” shortened from the affectionate “M’Lady”, a pet name from her father.
On Record (regarding her custommade violin): “Somewhere in Romania, a craftsman had heard my soul and had illustrated my life in wood and wire.”
Before moving to The United States, Viorii spent a majority of time “flitting between Europe and North Africa”.
Fiercely dedicated to her instrument Viorii has spent “..two decades pouring my soul into my art; often practicing until my fingers bled.”.
Discovered, on her first American tour, she was a distant cousin to Jack Tabby after hearing his performance of a family lullaby with his then group: ‘The Lost Shoe Strings Company’. The event instantly transformed the two from strangers to longtime writing partners; the lullaby was later adopted for The Throes’: “Night, Restless Night”.
