I started following my music path when I was small. I loved sitting at the piano, exploring, moving my hands over the keys, and making. I was blessed with a piano teacher who opened my eyes to a wide repertoire of music. I have also been a bit of an obsessive writer since my teens. Journals and poems, scripts for theatre and film, short fiction, letters, lyrics and playing with words. Not much has changed.
After much time here and there, I have settled in the south of Tasmania where nature is at my doorstep. I divide my creative time between teaching voice work, producing projects and writing fiction. I am a mother and value that role as the most important one of all.
I have spent the past two and a bit decades working continuously, from one project to the next. From recording an album with a string quartet in the Adelaide Hills to stadium concerts to playing shows in the Village in New York City. I've had record deals, done the media thing, recorded quite a few albums and have songs on high rotation. I've done more projects than I can remember, back to back, all of this time, which means I've collaborated with a huge number of people from producers to musicians to writers to film makers to actors. A lot sits in those meetings and that kind of work together. I walk away from each project with new skills and a wider outlook.
I am a believer in listening to myself and others, staying open to ideas, learning from everyone who sits before me and always keeping the love in what I do. I have high standards and put my all into every project I work on. I encourage those I work with to do the same.
Right now, I am producing many projects for songwriters and theatre writers, working with a few dozen musical theatre actors and doing a lot of one-on-one voice work with contemporary singers. In my spare time I write fiction under a pen name.
I am always happy to hear from people who are looking to collaborate on projects so please don't be shy about connecting.
