"This is how it's done"

2 X No1 ITUNES JAZZ CHART.
I’m a singer, actress, performance coach and mother to Clara and Georgia. I'm so grateful that I get to do what I love for a living. I am passionate about how music and heartfelt storytelling has the power to spark human connection, joy and empathy.
I work with orchestras in the UK and Europe as a soloist. I perform my own shows at jazz and cabaret clubs and live events. I act, credits including leading roles in Tell Me On A Sunday, Sweet Charity and The Last Five Years. I’ve recorded 2 albums and I’m very grateful to everyone who bought a copy to get them both to number 1 in the iTunes Jazz charts. I do some songwriting and released an EP of my own work. And I work with performers on their stagecraft and vocal technique and have a particular interest in stage confidence and mind training.
