Hello and welcome

Thank you for visiting my singing page. Below you will find music players to both of my solo albums co-produced with Matt Tweed - Ordinary Day (2011) and The Wild Places (2014) which feature songs inspired by a deep love of nature, birds, everyday miracles and the sacredness of life.

I have worked as a singer-songwriter and musician since 1994, recording, performing and touring with various bands including the eco-bardic Tribaladelic folk band Spacegoats.

From 2000-2003, I played in various Jazz outfits, including the Brighton Swing band Rockin' in Rhythm, and went on to form my own Jazz trio Stella by Starlight.

I have been trained as a Classical Soprano and have also performed for many years with Lewes Sings Gospel (Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year 2015). 

Currently, I am enjoying working on new material and also facilitating Joy of Singing workshops.

 

*Upcoming Summer Show Dates to be added soon!
