Vocals
I have been singing since I was a child and have been on stages and long haul tours across Europe and US performing as a singer in front of audiences big (EMA Awards) and small.
As a performer, I sing frequently my original songs and tour. As a session vocalist I have performed with various artists including Snow Patrol 2011&2012. I have a number of years experience as a backing vocals in the studio and live for various artists including Rams' Pocket Radio, Joe Echo (INXS), MojoFURY and Kyron Burke. I have my Grade 8 - RockSchool Vocals and I have been a vocal coach since 2007.
I can sing in many different styles including Rock, Pop, Blues, Jazz, Traditional and Musical Theatre.

Bass Guitar
I am a self taught bass guitarist who has been playing for bands since 2004 including live and studio work. I have sessioned for Rams' Pocket Radio between 2006-2014, Joe Echo in 2005 and have played bass for amateur musicals (most recent was Vernon God Little Production, late 2013, Queens University). I play bass live in my own band.

Piano
I am a self taught pianist who has been playing since 2007 and play in a percussive pop/rock style. I have lots of performing experience with piano in my solo project as well as some session work with Joe Echo and Worship bands through church. I have Grade 6 - Jazz Performance.

Song-writing
I have been writing pop songs since I was a child. I write prolifically and in various styles now for my own artist project, for other artists, for film and TV. I have facilitated various songwriting workshops for children and adults over the last 6 years and have collaborated with many fantastic songwriters around Europe and US including James Flannigan (Kodaline), Gita Langley, Henrik Janson, Thor Lunde and Brendan Murphy (4ofus).

Composing
Last year I was chosen to attend the Edinburgh Film Festival Composers Lab where I had the opportunity to meet and create soundscapes and soundtracks to different film and TV visuals. Since then I have composed for one feature film - 'Noirland' and one short film 'Sanctuary'. Both of which have not yet been released.
I have written to brief for advertising agency 'Mammoth' where I wrote a song for a fundraising campaign for MENCAP charity and their 'Big Step Forward' Campaign.
I am trying to build up a portfolio for more work in this area.

Film & Stage Crew

Sound Crew ability

Intermediate


I have had experience in coming up with the concepts for my music videos and have had a part to play in direction.
In school, I was a lighting technician for many of the plays and studied it in Performing Arts. I also try to volunteer at events to develop my skills better.
I have been a tour manager for various bands since 2008 so I have the skills required for stage crew.
