Lianne

Lianne was the name that Patricia Anne Deacon used for her only recording. She was born in New Plymouth and later moved to Wellington. She was discovered and helped by 'Sunday Times' columnist Barry Duncan (of Vicky & Dicky fame), his write-ups brought her to Tree's attention. At the age of 19 she recorded one single on the Tree label in 1969. It was "Mississippi Paddleboat"/"My Love Is For You". The Wedge, playing at the Downtown Club, backed her on the recording, helping produce Tree's third biggest selling single of 1969.

In 1970 she moved to Auckland and no further recordings were made. While in Wellington she appeared at Ali Baba's and the Downtown Club, with both the Quincy Conserve and the Wedge. She also performed at the Hastings 'Blossom Festival' and 'Labour Day Open-Air Pop Convention', the latter as a special guest along with the Fourmyula.
