I'm not very good at these at looking at my past and telling people all about me. Anyone who has been at any of my gigs or interviews will know that very well! 😂 I also struggle to write about the painful side of things if it's not in my music. Nevertheless, I will try my best! I also have a blog here which I will try to keep as up to date as possible with things going on!
So where do I start.... I think you will get from the picture above that I have always been a massive lover of music. I've even been told that I was bobbing along in time to theme songs on TV before I could walk! Music has been such a big lifeline for me and has been there when nothing else has. I will forever be thankful to music because of this.
From birth I was very poorly and although I was 8lb 6oz when I was born I wasn't gaining weight properly and was 2st 12lbs when I was 8 years old. Through many, many, many tests (and I believe what has caused my now phobia of needles) it was found that I have a mild case of immune deficiency disorder. Once diagnosed and an operation later, I was well on my way to recovery but it does still mean that I can get ill very easily and can have illnesses last longer and harder than they are in a 'normal' person (what is normal anyway?). Getting colds in the winter is a nightmare!
That aside, I have always sung, danced and performed whenever I have had the opportunity. I started out at the age of 2 performing very simple poetry on a stage at a local church. At home, I sang a lot to 'sing-a-long' Disney tapes. So much so, I sang a lot in an American accent! This love of performing led to being in shows throughout my education and after. You will get a feel for this through my performances page and I will talk more about these in my blogs.
In 2018, a friend bought me some time in a studio for a birthday present. I was completely overjoyed and had so much fun. The person running the event led on a record label and proposed a deal that if I can sell 500 units over 3 singles in the next 18 months, I will be offered a full record deal. I agreed, recorded the tracks (You Were Wrong, Moonshine and So Unbreakable), promoted and performed but was unsuccessful. However, from this I have learned so much about promoting myself, writing music, recording music, copyrighting and how to do this for myself. I may not have been successful in one way, but I feel that I have learned so much to let this journey continue.
