How long have you been singing?
I was classically trained throughout my childhood and teens; but didn’t really sing again until about 15 years ago. Since then, I have sung lead and backing vocals in a variety of bands spanning a range of genres/eras – country; rock; pop; jazz; folk; 60s pop. I took a few years out to concentrate on being a mum but SO happy to be back singing with Ultimate Floyd!
Who are your main influences?
Vocally, there are a number of singers I admire greatly including Ella Fitzgerald; KD Lang; Sarah McLachlan; Dusty Springfield to name but a few. I also love vocalists who really put on a performance, so artists such as Andy Bell from Erasure and Rufus Wainwright are also right up there amongst my heroes!

Until recently, I was a children’s entertainer, face painter and tattoo artist (of the glitter variety!).
