I started my journey performing in many local productions, shows, Eisteddfods, choir performances and local entertainment. Performing in two West End Productions in Jersey, ‘Annie’ with Ruth Madoc and ‘Joseph’ starring ‘H’ from Steps.
Leaving school and Jersey at 16, I moved to the UK to study my vocal diploma at The Academy of Contemporary Music. I then received a Distinction, which allowed me to move swiftly onto my Music Degree at the young age of 17. Which was a nerve-raking idea, but a fantastic experience for me!
During my degree course, I was asked to join my Lecturer’s (and great friend) Electro Swing band in 2013. Since joining the band, I was fortunate to be gigging in many places around England including London, Bristol, Brighton, Peterborough, Northampton, Sussex etc and these venues included Hooternannys, Fox & Firkin among many good venues.
Lunatrix played at Boomtown Fair, Winchester and supported Congo Natty in Finsbury Park. We also played and entertained for an evening at a very prestigious Wedding in London in August 2014 and throughout our time together played in many other small Festivals around the UK.
I have experience of recording and been lucky enough to indulge in some of the best recording studios in the UK. Lunatrix recorded tracks in the well-known “Jeff Becks” Studio in the South of England. Which was a great experience!
I have also spent time at Workshops and Gigs at the Metropolis studios in London, being inspired by many, one being the Legend of Funk, Mr George Clinton. Furthermore, my most peaceful experience was recording meditation chants for a Mindfulness Album called Inner Pieces.
After a two year intensive degree course in part Vocals, Music Business and Innovation. I learnt a lot more skills in other areas of the Industry.
This helped me to understand all the other aspects of being a Musician. From Studio skills, Business plans for upcoming artists/signed artists, A&R, Copyright laws on music, preparing Accounts, three year Business plans and also general terms and conditions of contracts and procedures which record companies undertake when signing a new artist.
I was inspired to grow with my Music by travelling around the world and using my Teaching skills in orphanages in Cambodia and singing at Kirtan Meditation Yoga Retreats, Bhakti practices in Indonesia.
