ABOUT

I am a soul singer by nature although i can sing anything .. and I have a huge range to top b/c - I write songs too and have had some encouraging minor success with one or two of them. My voice is distinctive/dextrous & very powerful (I trained extensively with David & Carrie grant). I've toured canada, Europe, asia and australia with my own shows and I have regional and west end theatre credits. I seem to have a particular gift for vocal impressions over a wide range of styles and genres so my tribute shows have done well - although i do have my own distinctive voice personality as well.. and i would like to develop the original songs side of what I do.
