As well as being trained as a Musical Theatre singer, performing in many musicals over the years, I have taken part in live competitions such as Britain Does Variety and local talent shows.
I am a singer song writer, having performed many local gigs, both solo (with accompaniment) and with Horston Longsail's Travelling Country Band. When required, I write and perform songs for the YouTube channel Tiny bag Productions, to accompany their videos.
I have an ongoing show "Joy-Amy's Retro Flashback" in which I sing songs from the 1950's and 60's which tours locally.
As a confident comedy improviser, for the comedy show Off The Cuff, I have experience of making up songs on the spot and weaving a theme in to the words.
