Monday 17th September: Myself and Justin Paton will be joined by Richard Thomas on cello at Power Lunches Arts Café.
Tuesday 4th September: I'm singing at The Klinker with Justin Paton and guest musician Nicole Nagel on percussion and backing vocals.
Sunday 19th August: I'm singing with Justin Paton at the Windmill in Brixton. It's a BBQ gig, so hopefully the weather will be
kind! Sounds like it'll be a really fun day, so come down if you can make it.
Friday 27th July: I'll be singing at a lovely night called Scaledown, performing as a duo with Justin Paton. The monthly night is always entertainingly compered with an eclectic line-up of acts, so there's lots to enjoy. Come along!
I had a brilliant, fascinating time performing in 'Walking Piece,' a promenade dance piece by Matthias Sperling. It took place at Siobhan Davies Dance studios and comprised of the dancers acting out a series of tasks, whilst moving in a loop in and around the building. It was an enjoyable challenge to retain physical poise and composure while taking part in playful
activities and interacting with the audience.
My next gig will be on Thursday 26th April at a very interesting performance night called 'Mirror Mirror' at Ryan's Bar on Stoke
Newington Church Street. The other acts on the bill include a male burlesque poet, an accordion playing DJ and a duo who improvise with steam railway sounds and electric guitars. I can't wait!
Tuesday 3rd April: I'm excited that tonight at midnight I'll be singing on Art Terry's 'Is Black Music' radio show on Resonance 104.4fm, with Raphael Mann playing moog synthesiser.
We'll also be performing this Thursday 5th April at the Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston as part of the 'Parade' night hosted by Frizz Records.
I'm very pleased to say that my next gig on Thursday 8th March will be to celebrate International Women's Day with a donation from ticket sales going to Amnesty. I'm performing as a duo with the very talented Raphael Mann with an amazing line-up of female fronted acts including Jess Bryant, You Are Wolf, Nancy Wallace and Roshi featuring Pars Radio. The event is happening on the Bar & Co boat, Temple Pier.
I have a gig coming up on Thursday 16th February at the Bird's Nest, Deptford. The excellent Roshi featuring Pars Radio and MFU are playing before us, so it's going to be a great night. It's free!
Have almost finished working on a new song called 'I'll Believe What I Can' with Justin Paton.

Tonight at midnight I'm singing on Art Terry's 'Is Black Music' radio show on Resonance 104.4 fm or you can listen online on
the website. The show will be repeated on Sunday 9th October at noon as well.
Still busy with song writing & recording & very pleased to report that I have a gig on Thursday 6th October. It's at a monthly night called Parade hosted by Frizz Records at: Servant Jazz Quarters, 10a Bradbury Street, Dalston, London N16 8JN. The
gig is from 7pm - midnight & includes loads of great acts & DJs.
I've posted my latest song 'Where It Starts and Stops' and a new version of 'No Chance' to the songs page. Collaborating with
Justin Paton is going so well and we had our first live performance on 12th June. Can't wait for the next one!
I'm very excited to say that Daughters on the Stage are performing our debut show 'The Linzee Way' at the Hen & Chickens Theatre (near Highbury & Islington tube) from Tues 24th - Sat 28th May at 7.30pm. It's a brand new comedy show that we've created. Come along for a fun night out!
UPDATE - The Linzee Way was a great success and really fun to perform in. It
was amazing to have such an enthusiastic, sell-out response from the audiences
for our work.
Recorded a new song called 'No Chance' with Justin Paton. Have a listen!
Have started rehearsing with Daughters on the Stage theatre company, of which I'm a co-founder member. We're having a really productive, fun time so far, working on our debut production.
Finished working on 'Help Myself' and another song called 'Who I Am' with Justin Paton.
Performed in 'Raise the Roof' at the Hayward Gallery, as part of the 'Move' exhibition at the South Bank Centre. We had great fun dancing on the roof on our own individual stages wearing very high heels! Thankfully it didn't feel as cold as I was expecting!
Made a radio drama in a day during a course with the radio director Gordon Lamont. It was inspiring to discover that it was actually possible to improvise, write and record a radio piece in one day!
Started developing and recording a new song, which I think will be called 'Help Myself.'
Have worked with Justin Paton on 'We Know When To Shout,' which was an amazing process.
Collaborated with Justin Paton on one of my songs 'Space to Hide.' It's so exciting to hear how far we've developed it beyond my original melody and lyrics.
Took part in Acting for Everyone course, taught by the director Patricia Doyle. It was great to work on spontaneous improvisation, monologues and scenes with her guidance and feedback.
Finished my primary teaching job this month. Looking forward to giving more of my time to performance.
Played the part of Rachel in 'Move Ahead,' a short film about teachers. I enjoyed drawing on my own experiences of teaching to help with playing the role.
