Vocalist

Welcome to my Vocalist pages! 


I'm looking forward to a busy Winter/Spring of gigs. They start in February at the Jazz Bar in Edinburgh and then see me head to Germany to play six gigs with a trio of superb musicians - Marten Terens on piano, Georgi Kiknadze on bass and Ole Seimetz on drums. Check out my GIGS page here for full details. 


After Germany, I jump to Japan! More on that soon.... (butterflies of excitement in my stomach!)

A bit more about me and my music... 

My music is an eclectic mix of styles and genres. It is full of music reflecting different stages in my life; from Cat Stevens to Cole Porter, punk to jazz and originals from more recent times.

Brought up in New York City, Woodstock, New Mexico and occasionally a red van, I was surrounded by art and music from the start. Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Cat Stevens and Phoebe Snow (to name but a few!) were the soundtrack of my childhood. My grandparents loved the big band swing era filling my ears when I visited them on Long Island. Teenhood started with a ‘Gabba Gabba Hey’ – the Ramones being my first major concert... Then came jazz...   Enough about me... let's listen to some of the music...
