Live Singing

I started taking music lessons when I was 16, wanting to improve my voice so that I could get larger roles in the high school musicals. In the process, I discovered a love for singing that has become a large part of who I am. I went on to perform in musicals regularly for the next 10 years, but when I moved to the UK I found more film and TV work coming my way. A few years went by and I realised that something was missing: I needed to bring singing back into my life. 

I now have my own vintage-style microphone, stand, amplifier, and a collection of classy backing tracks (no karaoke-style synthesiser songs for me!). These include jazz standards from the 1920s-60s, Swinging Christmas tunes, and a touch of Jazzy Disney. 

Please visit my Audio Page to hear my Singing Reel. You can also visit my Instagram or Facebook Fan Page for some live videos from recent gigs. A music video and CD are in the works as well, so stay tuned!
