Influences: Tori Amos, Tina Arena, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright, Stevie Wonder...many More
I have 20 years experience performing in pubs, clubs, cafes, festivals etc as a lead singer performing original material, as a harmony singer, flute player in bands and as a lead singer in cover groups.
For the last five years I have been playing as a soloist acoustic musician,lugging around and setting up the PA! so my voice, and performance/gigging endurance is quite strong! But I would now love to play with others again!!
In November 2011 I completed a 9 month contract on a cruise in Japan as the lead singer, singing popular songs from 70`s, 80`s 90`s.
From 2005 to 2006 I played 2 weekly cover gigs in a professional duo, playing 70`s 80`, 90`, 00`s music.
I have managed my own original band.
I have produced and funded 2 original cds.
I believe I have a talent for communicating a good song to an audience, I love performing and I am great at it! I have great stage presence and feel strongest when I am performing.
I can't tell you how passionate I am about a great song...From Joni Mitchell to John Farnham, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Roberta Flack, Donny Hathaway, The Eagles, Tori Amos, Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright...The list goes on...great singers singing great songs...These are the kinds of artists I aspire to.
I teach music in High school from years 7-12. I am completing another original recording and constantly writing new material. I also continue to gig solo, covers and originals. I am always learning new songs that I love and that audiences will hopefully love.
I have the ability to sing many styles, a large vocal range with a rich/soulful tone, strong natural belt and contrasting light aspirate tone with every other shade inbetween whilst still sounding unique. I am very experienced in singing covers, writing originals, performing in many different venues,recording, producing, managing my own band, touring, teaching singing and classroom music.
