Family & Companions
Petite, stylish, Scottish-born pop music diva who enjoyed a steady stream of hits during the 1980s alternating upbeat, danceable, synthesizer ditties with occasional love ballads. Possessing a rich, well-trained voice and considerable vocal range, Easton achieved immediate fame with her effortless renditions of such light, innocent fare as "Morning Train," "Modern Girl" and "Telefone/Long Distance Love Affair" and such lush, dramatic songs as the title song of the James Bond film, "For Your Eyes Only." Later tunes such as "Strut" and "Sugar Walls" (written for her by Prince), however, added a slightly more torrid edge to her image, which continued when she essayed a recurring role as Don Johnson's girlfriend on the slick TV crime series, "Miami Vice." By the 90s she was concentrating on developing acting roles for herself on the stage and on TV, though she did still enjoy occasional hit singles such as "The Lover in Me" and "What Comes Naturally."
