North Hollywood, California, USA. Flint was a pop vocalist whose ‘Angel On My Shoulder’ was her only big hit. In the late 50s she was signed as a songwriter by west coast publisher/writer Barry De Vorzon who took her to Cadence where ‘I Will Love You’ (1958) flopped. Flint then followed the folk boom, forming an acoustic trio before recording the Top 30 hit ‘Angel On My Shoulder’ for De Vorzon’s label Valiant in 1961. The song also appeared on the first album by labelmates the Cascades. She continued to record for Valiant during the mid-60s when her most successful single was one of several vocal versions of Vince Guaraldi’s tune ‘Cast Your Fate To The Wind’ (1966). During the 70s, Flint worked as a session singer for artists such as Batteau (1974) while DeVorzon found a niche composing television themes like ‘Nadia’s Theme’ (a US Top 10 hit in 1976) and ‘Simon And Simon’.
