About Me

From StarNow!
*I'm now managed by Sofia Spencer for ITV or other professional work.* I've learned over time that I have a super perky personally, or more recently know as being eccentric. Well, I'm just being me I suppose. I am looking for that right person to get me where I would love to be; with national and international recognition and radio play. I would love to just show the world who I am and I'm looking forward to getting started, maybe its you?!
----
I'm also looking for places in singing competitions such as The Voice, The X Factor and any other mainstream singing/talent competitions. I am also interested in smaller untelevised singing/talent competitions with industry personnel attending. I was scouted for The Voice earlier last year (2017) but unfortunately didn't make the blinds. I would love to be given a fantastic opportunity as I think getting experience in all areas of performing is crucial to gaining confidence on a commercial level.

Instruments I play

1- Keyboard (Piano)

2- My vocals (Obviously :P)

Software I Use

I've dabbled into various pieces of software, but I tend to go all out when making my music. I like the full experience in going out and making the music. What I mean is, I like to be immersed in the scene of composition and not just sat at home making my music. Yes, I do that for writing my lyrics, but thats about it. I tend to like to work with people online or in a studio recording my music as getting the experience in my eyes is just as important!

Hardware I Use

1- Yamaha PSR-E333

2- TC-Helicon VoiceLive Play

3- Ibiza Sound UHF-20

7- Sennheiser SKM 9000

My Influences / Fav Artists

My 2 big music influencers are Katy Perry and Sia. They both have a way of making their songs sound so unique without intimidating other chart of mainstream songs.

What's my sound? - Well view all of them here: https://goo.gl/xXPiwV ;)

My Music Sounds Like

Right, lets not get into the sound-alike category. I'm not trying to sound like anyone to be honest, I just want people to know me for me and not just another copycat cover artist. I like to perform my originals more than anything as those songs show me for me and not just copying another artist or person. I like to be myself and nothing or nobody will change that for the better!

In My Other Life I ...

..am a Singer-songwriter. IT'S MY PASSION!

2- Swimming (I enjoy)

3- Tennis (It's fun)

4- Badminton (It's easier fun)

5- Bowling (Split pin fluker, I also enjoy)

But most of all, its music; obviously! ;)
