More About Me…

I never dreamed I’d be lucky enough to be a wedding saxophone player and singer!

When I was at school I wanted to be an author! So becoming a wedding saxophone player and singer was not something I thought I would ever achieve. Some people are born with talent, while others work hard and discover theirs. The latter describes me. I started playing the saxophone at the age of  11 when my Dad encouraged me to learn an instrument.  From there my interest in music began to grow. I regularly performed as part of the school orchestra and formed a 4 piece girl-band called ‘Obsession’ at the age of 13, performing in our school music shows and at local events. The buzz I felt when performing was addictive and I knew it was something I wanted to continue to pursue.

Studying for the love of music

I took my saxophone studies seriously and went on to pass my Grade 8 Jazz Saxophone exam with a distinction from Trinity Guildhall.  I continued my studies in Musical Theatre at college and earned a distinction in my Grade 8 singing exam from London College of Music. Since these early days I’ve continued to study music and have a teaching diploma in Popular Music Vocals. 

I always knew that I was destined to be on stage, and started my entertainment career at the age of 18.  Over the years I have worked with several bands and show teams as lead vocalist in the UK and abroad.  As a member of Vocal Works Gospel Choir, I’ve supported celebrity acts including Susan Boyle and Take That. I also played lead vocalist in the ‘Bobby Socks and Blue Jeans’ touring theatre show, the ‘No.1 Christmas Show’ and a the sell out ‘Rock n Roll back the year’ music show hosted by former Radio 1 DJ, David ‘Diddy’ Hamilton.

Flying solo

In 2010 I made the decision to launch my solo music career, working as a wedding saxophone player, singer and events musician. Since then I have won the hearts of many and established a reputation as one of the UK’s Top wedding saxophone players. Most recently, I won the Event Entertainment Awards’ Best Wedding Ceremony Act for South West UK Region. 

I truly love what I do and this passion for my craft is evident in all my performances.  Music is such a powerful tool and can encompass so many thoughts, feelings and emotions. My primary mission is to delight my audiences; and so I use a variety of genres from moody blues to modern day pop to ensure there is always something for everyone.

Sharing my passion

When I’m not busy entertaining audiences, I share my skills as a Singing and Saxophone Tutor at my local music school ‘The Music Makers Academy‘ and as a visiting peripatetic vocal tutor for Taunton Music Service.
