I am an aspiring singer/songwriter with a unique versatile voice. I love to entertain and have often been compared with Michael Jackson, Sade, George Michael and Nina Simone. Although i can appreciate these similarities I always put my own unique stamp on any song that I do.
I have been singing since I was about 5 years old and have been performing sine the age of 12.
My fist pubic performance was when I was the lead singer in my local church band. We performed every sunday and during certain holidays a special show was organized. At this early age people always told me that I have a lot of talent and should pursue it.However, I always remained humble and believed that I still had a lot of work to do.
During my mid to late teens my music took a back seat while I focused on my studies. I gained very good A Level grades and got into the University of Surrey. I studied Biomedical Sciences at the university and gained a 2:1 classification. While I loved studying, I really wanted to get back to my music as soon as I graduated.
Once I finished university I spent a year working in London for a medical research company. During my days off i would write songs and develop melodies for them. I then auditioned for Downtown management and they accepted me. That was when I recorded my first ever original tracks. The first was a dance/electro song called "Don't cry" and the other was a pop ballad named "You keep me going".
Both of the songs were of very good quality and got good reviews from those who heard them.
After the recordings I decided to leave Downtown management and pursue other opportunities. So I auditioned for a boy band in London and got through. The band was very good and there were 5 of us vocalists. We recorded songs and went to a few auditions.
One of the members of the band managed to book a meeting for us with Universal records. We were in talks for a while but nothing materialised and we decided to go our separate ways.
This was really when I decided that I wanted to be a solo artist. I had always been told that I had a unique voice and style which would help me stand out. I soon started looking for jobs and eventually landed a role as a backing and support singer for a Tina Turner tribute show. The show was hugely successful and we performed all over Rhodes (Greece). In the show I did the backing vocals for Tina and also had my own solo slots at the end of the show. The songs I performed were mainly Michael Jackson hits and this allowed me to develop my falsetto. I previously did not realise I had a strong falsetto and the experience really strengthened and widened my vocal range.
The show was very popular and after many performances members of the audience would congratulate me personally.
I am currently working with a Southampton based producer on some new songs. I have played the songs to people and they have received promising reviews. I am looking for management and other musicians to work with so that I can move closer in becoming the artist I was born to be.
I am a hard working, humble and driven individual who wants to use the gift of song to bring joys to millions of people all over the world. I believe that all of us have an unlimited supply of talent and when we work together we can create the most beautiful things. As we combine our unlimited potential we begin to truly understand that everything is possible.
I also have a sound cloud page that houses my original songs so far.
