In the words a very famous Swedish band whom shall remain nameless "mama said I was a dancer before I could walk....she said I began to sing long before I could talk...." well that's me (not really the dancing side of it if I'm honest!).
At the age of 2, I was noticed by a musical theatre director when I took it upon myself to "enhance" the number being performed on stage by singing very loudly and dancing very wildly in the theatre aisle at one of her shows. And there began the tale...being on stage started early and continues to this day.
Music remains my passion and over the years I have used my voice in both acting and singing roles, having been in various musicals and pantos. In fact, my current job is running music classes for babies and toddlers. It's amazing to bring musical skills to ones so young and see them develop. So, I sing for my work, sing for my pleasure and sing for singing's sake.
Therefore, I was delighted to be invited to join Mike Stewart-Lawrence and his band to provide backing vocals for them. Having seen Mike in action during the late 80s/early 90s and more recently too, I was always, and still am, blown away by the talent and musicality I witnessed then and now, so to be asked to be a part of it is an honour and a privilege.
