Orella Myers

Orella Myers came from the small mining town of Minto, New Brunswick up in Canada. Her family later moved to Nova Scotia and then finally settling in Port Arthur, Ontario.

A 1957 article gushed that Orella had been singing in "...every possible kind of musical reproduction ever since she was a child and when she wasn't chirping around the house herself, there was always something going that could make musical sounds."

The 1957 article mentions her career was being managed by Don Grashey, who first discovered her.

It was said in 1958 that she had cut her first recording and it was pending release but no mention of the label was made. This may have been the Zero label that Don Grashey owned. We found mention of a single by her - "Gonna Spend My Time (To Make You Mine)" b/w "Give A Little, Take A Little Love".

The few articles we have found about Orella indicate she was about five feet four inches tall with green eyes and fair hair.
