Having tried on several different careers (fashion model, dancer, air stewardess) for size, and in my early thirties, I discovered a latent yet powerful desire to sing.
I studied voice technique in London and bought a piano starting initially with a classical repertoire and gaining performance experience in Opera Workshop Companies (Royal Opera House, Mayer-Lissmann Opera Centre).
Realising that this still wasn’t quite the right path to follow I moved to Ibiza, Spain in 1995 and started to experiment fusing classical and electronic music, branching off into chill-out/ethno/loungeand I developed my writing to include many songs and poems as well as some children’s stories.
I have performed at most of the main venues in Ibiza and at some of the most infamous parties such as Manumission. I’ve collaborated on a songwriting project with DJ Taucher (Millenium Bitch) which reached number nine in the dance charts in Germany and I’ve had songs included on several compilations including: Techno Nation 1 (sold more than 67,000 copies), Webster Hall Chillin’ in Ibiza, Café Oriental6, Eclipse.
I’ve given recital concerts with repertoires as diverse as music from musical theatre and film, renaissance and traditional folk music, as well as art-songs from the 20th century. I’ve had several students of voice technique over the years, some of whom have gone on to have international careers; Angela Cervantes and Bahramji for example and I’ve collaborated with composer/producer/artist Chris Le Blanc as co-lyricist on tracks such as Beyond the Sunsets (Karma Loft) and You put a Spell on Me (L’art Mystique).
More recently, I studied Music Technology at level 2, Audio Recording Skills at Level 1 and Studio Production. I’m creating a production suite in my loft apartment in Chesterfield and writing, as well as producing, some new songs. My debut EP (as a producer), called DESTINATION, was released in 2018 and is widely available for streaming and digital download. I debuted it at the Tramlines Festival in Sheffield (July 2018) at a Fringe Venue; The Mulberry Bar. Currently, I am producing my first album and composing for advertising campaigns.
I’m open to all types of artistic and production collaboration.
