Stage Manager, Actor’s Dresser, Tea Trolley Pilot, Chicken Wrangler, Madam Chair, Theatrical Milliner, Colour Cutter, Project Manager and Events Organiser are some of the jobs I did before I became a singer.
Since making the switch, I’ve been a Sex Patel, Purveyor of Fine Songs, Ukulele Lady, Big Band Chanteuse, Session Singer, Demo Artist, Soul Diva, Workshop Leader, Vocal Coach, Choral Mistress, Wedding Singer and a jobbing singer of songs. Alongside recordings with and for other bands, I've managed to record a solo album and gather some fans along the way which is both flattering and encouraging and I thank you.
I love singing, it’s the best job I’ve ever had and I’ve done it in some smashing places from The Sage Gateshead to Glastonbury Festival via many arts centres, theatres, festivals, jazz clubs and unholy dives across our fine land.
My favourite singers are those that tell stories, singers that make you forget that they are there and allow you to connect with the song, that's where I'm aiming. I don't subscribe to any particular musical idiom or genre and believe like Duke Ellington that 'there are two kinds of music, good music and the other kind'
I am passionate about songs and singing and believe in the power of human expression through song.
What is your song???
