WOW! So many things to share, where do I start? Well, here's a few things about me to start :-p
I am a professional singer, musician and performer with 30+ years industry experience. I am a passionate songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, theatre-maker and arts manager. I also work in the arts and music advocacy space with a range of organisations, including music streaming start-up The Pack Australia, and the Perth Music Committee. I manage two professional bands and perform regularly in Western Australia and beyond.
I co-wrote and recorded my first album of swing inspired original music in 2002 and held long term residencies at the Crown Casino (previously Burswood Casino), the Mustang Bar and the Ellington Jazz Club. I have also opened for or supported acts such as James Morrison and Joe Camilleri and performed with the UK’s House Gospel Choir as a part of the 2016 Perth International Arts Festival in the Chevron Gardens Elizabeth Quay Perth.
