*I'm now managed by Sofia Spencer for ITV or other professional work. I've learned over time that I have a super perky personality, or more recently know as being eccentric. Well, I'm just being me I suppose. I'm looking for that right person to get me where I would love to be; with national and international recognition and radio play.
I'm also looking for places in singing competitions such as The Voice, The X Factor and any other singing/talent competitions. I am also interested in smaller untelevised singing/talent competitions with industry personnel attending. 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. I have completed a contacted Singing Flash Mob and BBC's All Together Now as a Control Singer!
1- Keyboard (Piano)
2- My vocals (Obviously :P)
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!

My big music influencers are Katy Perry, Faouzia and Sia. They have a way of making their songs sound so unique without intimidating other chart of mainstream songs. Creativity and uniqueness is why I love them so much!
Right, lets not get into the sound-alike category aha. 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!
