Biography

I started singing at a very early age, before I could speak properly, therefore music has always been my center. As I grew up, I started listening more objectivley and learning from others by listening and watching, also being incredibly self critical, means I am still and will always be learning. I started out by entering various talent competitions, singing covers, I wanted to be just like Whitney or Mariah, I learned that , that is not who I am . I started writing songs at the age of 16, I was very shy about it, I went through stages where you could almost say that being able to write and bring across so many feelings and moods became an obsession, it is something I need to do. When I graduated from high school, I went on and did many live performances, in premier venues . I also wrote and sang jingles for local radio stations. This all took place in my home town. I decided that I had , had enough and needed a change of scenery and spread my wings and landed myself a contract to work abroad in the UAE, Dubai in a hotel, singing six nights a week at a jazz club. This was all very new and intimidating but I worked very hard and found yet another gendre of music that has given me new insite. I worked in Dubai for 1 year before moving to England, there I started to experiment with new ideas and songwriting styles, I also got the first taste of what it is like having a home studio, I slowly started to learn about all the "buttons" you find yourself mezmorised by when you first walk into a studio. In doing this I found myself, as a singer, songwriter, performer, and today I am very greatful for that. I feel that I am ready to share with the world , the journey and the magic of music and I just hope and pray that I can give back to music and to people what I have recieved from it, whether it be comfort in a difficult time or just something that makes every part of you want to dance with joy and passion.
