Biography

In the beginning was dance. Having studied ballet, tap, jazz and contemporary from the age of three and piano from the age of 6, classical piano was the intital musical direction and is the foundation of my technique today.

My professional career started in musical theatre at the age of 10 and continued until I went to University to complete a Bachelor of Arts in Contemporary Dance.

In 1997 I travelled for the first time and worked with a dance company in New York for 10 months. During this time I also performed as a piano/vocalist in various smaller venues in Manhatten (eg The Kitchen, Le Bar Bat, Eden Lounge).

In 2000/01 I embarked on my first originals recording - VSL "The View From Here". This was released to sell out shows in Sydney in 2002 and toured throughout Europe, UK and US in 2003/04.

From 2003-2006 I choreographed, composed and performed in London. Working in a jazz duo (Too Darn Hot) and creating a show for conferences and events (Cheek To Cheek), in the style of Fred & Ginger.

Now back in Sydney the latest project is an electro, neo-classical, chilled fusion. And also working with another singer/songrwriter, Dave Anderson (www.daveandersononline.com) Stay tuned for more....V

Today

Written By: Vanessa Seymour-Lee

Today the world seems to big
I'm working hard to be the best I can
I know all I have to do is be
Today, I can't remember me
