A native of Richmond Hill, Ontario, she is the daughter of singer and actress Jackie Richardson, the niece of blues and jazz singer Betty Richardson and the sister of former Polka Dot Door host Gairey Richardson. She began performing professionally in the early 1980s, both as a solo blues, jazz and R&B vocalist and with the family musical group The Richardsons.
Her first recording, the dance-pop single "He's My Lover", was released in 1985, and she won the award for Most Promising Female Vocalist at the Juno Awards of 1986. Her second single, "Peek-a-Boo" was released the following year and won the award for Best R&B/Soul Recording at the Juno Awards of 1987. The song was also named best single, and Richardson best female artist, at the 1987 Black Music Awards of Canada.
Her third single, "I Want It", followed in 1987.

She subsequently moved to Montreal, Quebec, performing with acts such as the Montreal Jubilation Gospel Choir and Jim Hillman and the Merlin Factor. The latter band won a Juno Award for Best Contemporary Jazz Album at the Juno Awards of 1995.
She continued to perform in Montreal as a jazz singer, as a performer in musical theatre productions, in continued collaborations with her mother and as a backing vocalist for other musicians.
