ABOUT

I am an eclectic feminist musician (pianist, trumpeter, producer and songwriter) interested in collaborating with other musicians (particularly vocalists) to create edgy electronic tracks.

I want to create ambitious music that says something about our time and helps imagine a radically better future.

Influences

Ultimately, I am very multi-dimensional as a musician - resisting / pushing against the limitation of labels, box ticking and categorisation. Yes...this means that the industry will struggle to reduce me in to a commercial package…but so be it…

I draw upon lots of different influences from the Western Classical Canon (especially serialism and minimalism) to 20th Experimental Music (e.g. Sound Art and Musique concrète) to pop (Lady Gaga) to RnB (e.g. Janelle Monae) to Hip Hop (e.g. Missy Elliot, Angel Haze) to indie (e.g. Radiohead, Muse) to punk (e.g. The Slits, Le Tigre) dance (e.g. Kraftwerk, Moby) to electro (e.g. Delia Derbyshire, Planningtorock, Chicks On Speed, F K A Twigs).

I am very open minded is this regards - as long I can perceive innovation and integrity.
