2014 has been a great year-having performed at Glastonbury four times, including opening up the Toad Hall Stage performing my own material. I have been invited to perform again in 2015. In 2014 my highlights also include performing at The Hammersmith apollo and getting scouted for the Voice, reaching the final 200 out of 40,000 applicants. I also sang on the soundtrack for the film Harrigan, starring Steven Tompkinson.

Some of my achievements up to date include performing solo at Newcastle City Hall, at the event Sunday for Sammy, where I was amongst some fantastic performers such as Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), Tim Healy and Lindisfarne. I have supported various artists at the 02 Carling Academy (Newcastle), and I have also supported artists including Lauren Pritchard (signed to Island Records), Hazel O Connor, Visage, and blues legend Skip “Little Axe” McDonald.

I have always had a passion for musical theatre, and have performed across the country in many musicals and opera’s, including Her Majesty’s Theatre, starring as a young Marylin Monroe. This was one of my first performing experiences, at the age of 9yrs. I attended stagecoach and theatre train for many years into my late teens.

I won a Talent competition in 2011 out of over 1000 people Nationwide, which funded me to study for a year at the prestigious Brighton Institute of Modern Music, BIMM. http://www.sundaysun.co.uk/news/north-east-news/2011/06/19/song-based-on-great-grandmother-s-poem-wins-contest-for-north-girl-79310-28901515/
 

In 2013, I studied at The British Academy of new Music, Access to Music London.
I am also part of an electronic duo, Silent Houses . Please do check us out also. http://www.facebook.com/silenthouses
