Since 1989, and after many many failed auditions I got my first professional job and began touring and performing all over the world. From Tokyo to La Scala Milan, Carnegie Hall & The Lincoln Centre, New York. From someone who had been doing amateur dramatic shows this was a huge leap! I was forced to work harder than I'd ever known was possible. It was terrifying. But oh so rewarding...
That job was with The Swingles as their first soprano. After five years of concert touring and 5 studio albums with The Swingles, I went on to sing on over 350 film soundtracks and recorded two solo studio albums.
I decided at 38 I wanted to train as an actress! So I took a 2 year part time course. And through that energy came a conversation with Mary Carewe. I was singing on a film soundtrack with her and soon after was introduced by her to The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Orchestra, Liverpool Philharmonic and The BBC Concert Orchestra, who all hired me as a featured soloist around the UK and at the Proms, Royal Albert Hall.
Since lockdown 2021 I've started a new business helping musicians raise their profile and be confident in their skills. It's been a tough time for us all and this community gives support and encouragement. Musicians who mean business
IN 2021 I'm also SUPER EXCITED to be releasing a brand new album with Chris a legendary trombone player and leader of The Syd Lawrence Orchestra who I now sing with regularly.
I have always had a lot going on. I enjoy the diversity. Two marriages later and inheriting two wonderful step kids, my life can't be described a dull. But I keep moving, keep growing and the most important thing to me in life is human connection and making people feel good.
