I am an award winning composer, vocal coach (specialising in artistic development), singer/songwriter, creative director and music mentor.
In my capacity as a singing lecturer I work nationally in the UK and my clients include Royal Academy of Music, Royal Northern College of Music, BIMM (Manchester) & Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.
I am the Creative Director and manager of the vocal ensemble, Sense of Sound Singers and have successfully secured collaborations with Damon Albarn, Seal, Jon Bon Jovi, David Gilmore, Paloma Faith, Blossoms, Yoko Ono, Massive Attack, Cream Classical, Rugby World Cup at Ethiad Staium 2015 and The Netball World Cup at M&S Arena in 2019 during which I was given the title of Lady Liverpool and sang at the opening and closing ceremonies.
As a vocal coach, composer and music mentor I am adept at getting amazing results for singers, bands and choirs by focusing on emotional connection through song, vocal techniques, tight harmonisation, musicality, blend and performance skills. I encourage authenticity and individuality in all of my work.
My 30 years of teaching goes way beyond vocal technique. I specialise in artist development and as an accomplished top line writer and vocal arranger I can share my knowledge of musicality and performance to bring out the best in my students.
I believe in singing for social change and diversity and inclusion are central to that ethos.
