The New Year finds me preparing for the launch of Tuneless Choir London Vauxhall. Very excited to be the first 'Tuneless Choir to launch in London!! For more info click here
I was the lead vocalist for the London based band 'Fish Out of Water'. We performed at many venues and music festivals in the UK and Europe and performed on TV and radio. In 1988 we released the album 'Red Sunset' on Stream records.
I took a break to focus on raising a family and to explore other interests such as Art Textiles which I studied at Goldsmiths College in London.
Since my return to music I have worked with a lot of great jazz musicians in London and have performed at many clubs including The Bull's Head and The Vortex. I find interpreting the jazz songbook endlessly fascinating.
I also work with Max Warner, a guitarist, with whom I sing popular jazz standards. We very much enjoy playing at parties and events where we aim to create a relaxed jazzy atmosphere.
I have created and run a range of jazz and rhythm workshops for all ages and am deeply interested in developing my own experimental compositions which incorporate voice, improvisation and sound pieces.
I am now running an open mic for jazz singers and musicians in conjunction with Creative Flowe, at Del’Aziz Clapham…..for singers and musicians who want to come and perform or try out new material or jam together in a relaxed atmosphere.
Enjoy my website and do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like me to sing for you,
