I have been somewhat classically trained- a couple of school choirs and music performance/ theory. However, I am mostly self taught; I have been singing almost every day since I discovered my voice as a child. I have performed a large number of times (in groups and solo), including some of my own work (singing and playing piano/guitar) at open-mic nights and also spent a year busking on Queen Street in my free time.

I am an alto who can go very high when properly warmed up and in practice. On a bad day I still have a two octave range. My voice is very strong- I can project it very well (enough to be heard from the other side of Queen Street without assistance!). If I had to describe it in terms of tone I would say it sits somewhere between Eta James and Portishead's Beth Gibbons.

For me music is about finding a way to make all the pieces fit together in mind-blowing harmony and discordance. I really love music which utilizes sampling, keys, strings and brass as well as the classic rock trio of drums, guitar, and bass; the more the merrier!
