• RIP Edith Bliss

Thursday, May 03, 2012

Brisbane girl Edith Bliss has died at the age of 53 after a long illness. 

Edith was born in Brisbane in 1959. In 1979 she moved to Sydney and started managing an upmarket shoe store. After accompanying a friend to an audition she was asked to audition too - and her showbiz career was born. 

Later that year she released her debut single If It's Love You Want on the Grundy Organisation "GO" label. She subsequently recorded two more singles, Heart of Stone and Two Single Beds before releasing the album Sheer Bliss, in 1980.

However, on the verge of releasing a new single, written by Steve Kilbey of The Church, Bliss opted for a career in television. Two weeks later she had been employed as a reporter on children's series Simon Townsend's Wonder World  which began in 1979.

In 2006, she appeared (under the married name of Edith Tanner) as a contestant on the final episode of game show Wheel of Fortune, and won.
