My music can vary from indie/folk to classical, depending on the tone. I am self taught (though only because I find music very personal and the idea of someone else teaching me makes me feel vulnerable), I am very committed to my singing and song writing though. Often I try to tell a story with my music but always in an ambiguous tone.

The Nightmare Prince
The Nightmare Princethis song was written and performed by me. i was inspired to write it after reading about the mythical german tale of 'the erl king'. the name is first used by johann gottfried herder in his ballad "erlkönigs tochter" and was taken up by johann wolfgang von goethe in his poem "erlkönig".
Full Moon Lullabye - Cover
Full Moon Lullabye - CoverHey guys. If you were like me were lucky enough to see the Broadway production of 𝓚𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓚𝓸𝓷𝓰 - then WOWEE wasn't it an experience?! My favorite song in the whole production was one called 'Full Moon Lullabye' and it was beyond beautiful! I decided to do a cover of it (or at least tried to). Obviously I'm no Christiani Pitts or Esther Hannaford, but I enjoyed singing it.
Don't Look Back
Don't Look BackHey guys! This is a demo of my latest song that I was inspired to write after re-reading one of my favorite books. I love writing songs for my favorite fictional characters best!
Dea's SongI took the lyrics of this song from Victor Hugo's novel, The Man Who Laughs (which is one of my all time favourite books). The song is performed by the blind Dea at a travelling fair. I don't know how the melody is actually supposed to go so I made up my own.
How Will She Know?
How Will She Know?This is a rough demo of my newest song. For me it is about an estranged father and daughter trying to reconnect.

Turning Darkness Into Light
Turning Darkness Into LightHey guys, hope everyone's doing OK during these turbulent times. This is my newest song 𝓣𝓾𝓻𝓷𝓲𝓷𝓰 𝓭𝓪𝓻𝓴𝓷𝓮𝓼𝓼 𝓲𝓷𝓽𝓸 𝓵𝓲𝓰𝓱𝓽. I hope you like it. I couldn't help but notice after looking at my profile, people seem to just heart my songs without actually listening to them, which I'm not gonna lie hurts me. So please DON'T press the like button on any of my songs unless you actually listened to them! Thanks🙏
Letters To Bionic
Letters To BionicHey guys, hope everyone's doing OK! This is the first song I've written and performed since the Corona outbreak. I don't know why I felt the need to bring that up, I just did. More personally, it's the first time I've sung since regaining my voice after a bout of laryngitis, so that felt good!
Pandora's boxThis is my latest song 'Pandora's box'. I was inspired to write it after reading about a true story that really touched a nerve! As usual I performed and wrote the song myself. Hope you like it.

In my way
In my wayThis is a demo of my song "In my way". I was inspired to write this following the #MeToo movement. It's about some of my own experiences as well that I've come to terms with. I hope you like it. 'The Broken Ear' helped me with this one.
I don't really mind
I don't really mindThis is a demo of my newest song "I don't really mind". Its more electric as opposed to my more folksy songs. On this I collaborated with 'The Broken Ear' again.
No RegretsThis is a song about a girl who's done justifying her actions and apologizing for everything she's ever done. The music was provided to me by an artist called Broken Ear (don't know if that's irony or an insult).
Old Souls - cover
Old Souls - coverThis is my attempt to cover the song 'Old Souls' from the movie Phantom of the Paradise (which is my new favorite movie!). In the movie this is sung by the insanely talented and beautiful Jessica Harper who plays Phoenix. Obviously I don't have her talent and my voice is too high, but I just wanted a chance to let my inner Phoenix rise, lol.
Mad As Love - Official Demo
Mad As Love - Official DemoThis is my newest song "Mad as Love". Its partly inspired inspired by Harley Quinn and her love for the Joker and also inspired by Madonna's song 'Till death do us part'. Since this is a rough demo, I'll probably be uploading better edited versions in the future.
Our Kind Of Heaven
Our Kind Of HeavenThis is a demo of my newest song 'Our Kind of Heaven'. Many different, classic love stories inspired me to write this, the main one being Gwynplaine and Dea from 'The Man Who Laughs', but also others star-crossed relationships like Tristan and Isolde, Romeo and Juliet, Hermia and Lysander, Guinevere and Lancelot, Roxanne and Cyrano etc. I love love♡♡
Diamonds in the sand

The Hero with no name
The Hero with no nameI guess this is my first song of 2019. Happy new year everyone! This is a rough demo of my newest song "the Hero with no name". I suppose it could be considered a "filk" song since its about fictional characters.
We're walking in the air - cover
We're walking in the air - coverI've always wanted to cover this song and now seemed like a good time. Merry Christmas everyone!🎄
Nobody loves the damsel
Nobody loves the damselThis is a demo for my newest song "Nobody loves the damsel". The title is pretty self explanatory, but the reason I wrote this song was because I don't understand why people dislike the "damsel in distress" character so much when so often the story doesn't begin until the damsel falls into distress. That said, I don't particularly like such a character either, I just don't see them as useless.
Fierce Fairy tales: Beauty + Bravery
Fierce Fairy tales: Beauty + BraveryI decided to start narrating some of my favorite poems, because - why not? I enjoyed doing so. This is from a book called "Fierce Fairy tales" by Nikita Gill https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fierce-Fairytales-Poems-Stories-Stir/dp/0316420743 This particular poem "Beauty and Bravery" is told from the point of view of Belle/Beauty from "Beauty and the Beast". The background music was provided by Noud van Harskamp https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOIOKPmOrYYs0Idqn7fstSg Obviously I own nothing! I'll probably narrate some of the other poems from Nikita's book (I love it so much) as well as other non related poems, so if you like this keep your ears open.
SaoirseThis is my newest track "Saoirse'. it is a different genre from my other songs, more Celtic. Most of the words are Gaelic Irish words. I'm just trying something new.
Everybody wants to rule the world - Acoustic cover
Everybody wants to rule the world - Acoustic coverFor ages I really wanted to do a cover of this song. I could only provide an acoustic version (for a song that doesn't really scream acoustic). Well no one can say I don't like a challenge!

A Thousand Fears - Demo
A Thousand Fears - DemoThis is a rough draft of my newest song 'A Thousand Fears'. It was written as a way for me to cope with the loss of my father and its also written to several friends of the family who recently lost their dad too. The background music isn't great I admit as the program I use to make the background music isn't working so I provided the acoustics myself.
Our Favorite Friend
Our Favorite FriendThis is a demo of my newest song 'Our Favorite friend'. I was inspired to write this song after reading 'Aurora Leigh' by Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Hope you like it.

Once Upon a December Cover
Once Upon a December CoverOnce again I know the background music isn't quite right, but that's not what concerned me. This is a song I've always wanted to sing, but I wanted to do it to the best I could and I wasn't satisfied with the other one.
Hello Evanescence - Cover
Hello Evanescence - CoverThis is a cover of one of my favorite Evanescence (they rock) songs 'Hello'. I know the piano notes aren't the same and I'm no Amy Lee but I think this has a simple charm...
Nothing Lasts Forever Lullaby Version
Nothing Lasts Forever Lullaby VersionWith most of my songs I always feel compelled to create a 'lullaby' version too (I don't know why). With this song it felt especially right to do so.
Nothing Lasts Forever
Nothing Lasts ForeverThis is my newest song. I'm actually quite proud of it. I know the title is hardly original but the lyrics are. Like all my other songs, it was created in ujam (what would I do without ujam?).
Home - Cover
Home - CoverAnother Belle song from Broadways 'Beauty and the Beast'. This is the song I really wanted to sing. My favorite rendition of it was done by Dianne Pilkington.
Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again - Cover
Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again - CoverThis is my rendition of 'Wishing you were somehow here again' from my all time favorite musical 'The Phantom of the Opera'. This song is personal to me, because I thought of it after my Grandma died. I was recording this in ujam (which I love) and it only gave me a certain amount of time to sing before it cut me off!
A change in me - Cover
A change in me - CoverThis is my rendition of 'a change in me' from one of my favorite musicals ever 'Beauty and the Beast'. Like many woman of my generation, Belle was my idol growing up so I really wanted to sing one of her songs.
