ABOUT

I'm a singer/pianist/saxophonist based in Cambridge. Singing is my main passion and I'm involved in various projects - a Massive Attack influenced duo doing covers and originals (currently looking for a drummer / bassist), a giant (not your average) choir that likes to perform in the dark and has sold out their last 9 gigs and a band called The Pawn Hearts who do covers and originals and enjoy rocking around each other's living rooms/local venues.

I was classically trained to a high standard at school in flute, saxophone and piano and played in various orchestras / swing bands. Then life got in the way and I had a 14 year break but am now throwing myself back into music with all the passion I can muster and a very different approach (more in line with my music interests). My main goal is to play/create music I love and eventually escape the dreaded day job to perform, sing and write full time. I have a long way to go and it's a little tricky as a single mum but so far dogged determination is winning the battle!
