Influences: Spice Girls, No Doubt, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears,
My early training began at Leeds Girls Choir when I was 8. I sang solo in many concerts at the Leeds Town Hall and also sang Little People and Castle on a cloud from Les Miserable alongside the adult choir at the Town Hall. I was entered into many singing competitions by my choir master Walter Bradley leading to my performance in the Top Talent Contest final in Leeds with Presenter/Actor Mark Curry.
At 11 I joined Leeds Youth Opera (see above) and widened my singing abilities. I could read music really well by now and found myself wanting to sing the harmonies rather than the melody so I was moved from Soprano to Alto. I also took up piano lessons which I did until the age of 17.
I would always volunteer myself for the solos at school in the choir and also began to play percussion and the glockenspiel in the school orchestra. I enjoyed music so much that some boys formed a band and asked me to join. We covered mainly Status Quo songs.
Leaving school I wanted to concentrate on acting so attended a college in Leeds I still found myself wanting to sing and dance too so moved on to Newcastle College of performing arts to study all 3 aspects of performing arts. After leaving full time education I got myself a full time job working in a live entertainment bar singing most weekends to around 2000 people. This then moved me into my current career of 16 years as a tribute artistes to Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga and most recently Ellie Goulding. Over the years I have been a session singer for Jive Bunny's top 40 album 'Swing another Mood' and Music Factory's 'Mastermix' albums.
