Jazz vocalist and songwriter hailing from Newcastle. Albums to date are “Now That I Am Real” (2007), “Looking Glass” (2010) and “Twelve Stories” (33 Records, 2013). The latter two albums feature a band including Andy Champion (double bass), Mark Williams (guitar), Richard Brown (drums) and Noel Dennis (trumpet & flugelhorn).
"A mix of intelligent original songs and innovative arrangements of tunes by both jazz and pop composers. It's the quality of the original songs that make this jazz vocal album stand out from the pack."
"A show that combined excellent musicianship and literate, intelligent song writing and arranging with good humour and a pleasingly unpretentious approach."
