Still working on that hot first release.



I am a late bloomer into the music/songwriting scene in comparison to the norm. It all came about during a period of serious illness where I had a lot of time to think about what I truly desired from my life. I gained so much clarity during that time and began writing down my thoughts and feelings, which were eventually constructed into songs.

Friends encouraged me to move into performing my songs at open mic nights late in 2009, but its been all systems go this summer of 2010/11 and I'm doing as many local gigs as I can.

In August 2010, my song 'Beautiful Girl' won the Adult Contemporary/Acoustic Ballad section of the Annual North Coast of NSW, Dolphin Music Awards, and was a finalist in the Emerging Talent section. You can listen to the song on this site!

My main influences come from many Australian singer/songwriters such as Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins, Kasey Chambers, and I also like the Dixie Chicks, Laura Marling, Sting, and many more, way too many to list. I could be showing my age..... ;-)

My music style is sweet, sometimes catchy and poppy, other times melancholic and heartfelt, and somewhat moving in some respects. I tend to write ballads and stories about my own thoughts feelings and experiences. It's music to chill to, cry or laugh to, be inspired by, and other deep and meaningful stuff!!
