I've just recently finished my degree in Music at The University of Salford where i graduated with a 2:1. I am a first study singer, i have had vocal training since i was fifteen. Before University i studied A level music at college, i had classical vocal training for two years while studying for my A levels and i was the lead soprano in the college choir. For my end of year recital i sang grade 8 standard pieces. The main style of music i enjoy singing is folk music, my main influences are Eva Cassidy, Delta Goodrem, Jessie J, Martina McBride and Carrie Underwood. I also feel like this is the best style suited to my voice. I performed in college showcases performing classical pieces as well as more pop/contemporary pieces. My voice is very versatile and is suited to classical, folk, pop and country music.
