I am a professional, experienced, hard working, powerful and versatile female vocalist based in Edinburgh, Scotland. Dynamic, charismatic with strong stage presence and an outgoing personality.
I am a full time self-employed vocalist and I perform all over Scotland and Northern England. I mainly perform as a solo singer but I also provide lead vocals for an exciting live sax and vocal duo, we are called Sax On Legs and perform in cocktail bars, restaurants, nightclubs and weddings. I dep for various wedding and corporate function bands, I am hired for session and studio work and also provide vocals on occasion as part of an 80s party duo.
Over the years I have built up a solid reputation and network of clients and venues with repeat bookings each year. I am engaging and have a good rapport with audiences. I have many people come to the same venue to see me again and again or many follow me on my Facebook page to keep up to date where my next performance will be.
I have performed at many prestigious events and venues – private parties/events, weddings, hotels, upmarket cocktail bars, ticketed VIP events etc, and have an extensive repertoire of hundreds of songs from rock, soul, motown, pop, disco, jazz, blues, funk.
I have a wealth of experience working abroad from singing with an ABBA tribute band that toured in popular holiday resorts around the Balearic Islands for two summer seasons, to performing as a solo Disco Diva tribute act for a full summer season in Cyprus. I have also performed in various venues around Gran Canaria and Tenerife.
For two years I sang with a local blues band called 'Stevey Hay's Shades Of Blue', this band was highly respected in Scotland's Blues scene and I had the opportunity to sing in The Famous Spiegeltent as part of Edinburgh's Jazz & Blues Festival with them twice and at well known venues such at The Voodoo Rooms and Whighams Wine Cellar Bar. The only reason this band stopped was the sudden unfortunate passing of Stevey Hay.
During The Edinburgh Fringe Festival I have sang in various venues around the city as a solo singer and also with other collaborations. I have won many singing/talent competitions around Scotland and have sung at VIP events with celebrities in attendance such as the world famous boxer Sugar Ray Leonard.
