Welcome to my website! Thanks for visiting.
I have been singing for as long as I can remember. At age 5 I sat my Auntie Jackie down and sung her my song I had just written, ‘Ippy Dippy Dation’. I have no idea what that means or what I was singing about but I was desperate to perform it to someone! Not a lot’s changed since then. Sure, I grew to nearly 6ft, spent years thinking I was straight (shocker, I wasn’t) and lost my confidence as a songwriter (why? Did you read that title?!) but I’m still that 5 year old singing all the time and just making music. I’ve even gone back to the haircut I had…
Since then I’ve studied music and singing from college all the way through University and on to the Royal Academy of Music. I’ve sung in bands, theatre shows, as a solo artist, dabbled in acting, travelled the world performing in hotels, theatres, Cruise Ships, recorded vocals in studios and remotely, written songs, taught singing and released a solo album! I absolutely love being up on stage and singing brings me the greatest joy. Over the last few years I’ve incorporated playing both electric and acoustic guitar into my performances and I can’t imagine being without it now!
During the lockdown in 2020 I suddenly found myself unemployed and gig-less so to fill my time I decided to record a song of my late father’s with a friend. This snowballed into a full blown album, funded by a crowdfunder campaign and many, many kind and generous souls! The debut single, ‘Greasy Mabel’ went to no1 in the UK iTunes Country Charts and so did the album when it was released in November 2020. The reception the album got was amazing and the support from radio stations, blogs and the industry in general blew me away. I’m currently working on the follow up. Watch this space!
After a battle with breast cancer, a late diagnosis of ADHD (Yay! Neurodiversity rules!) and a global pandemic, the last couple of years have been full on to say the least. I’ve toured the UK with The Sound Of Springsteen as a backing vocalist and guitarist and now I’m concentrating on my solo career. I am passionate about helping others in marginalised communities get involved with making music and was recently honoured to help with Girls Rock London as the guitar tutor on the youth camp. Being a big ol’ gay, neurodiverse woman in her (very) late thirties doesn’t stop me making music and I believe there shouldn’t be any barriers to anyone!
