Forde was born in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia. She was the sixth of the eight children of Lott Flannagan and Phoebe, who also had two children from a prior marriage.

She became an immediate star, making the first of her many sound recordings in 1903 and making 700 individual recordings by 1936 ...More at the: Music Hall and Variety page.
