Rock (Pop/Country/Folk overtures) best describes my music and sound. Writing, performing and managing artists along with co-producing my own music and artworks are my passions. I recently teamed up with Lindy and Miriam to form our all girl band Lace. Catch us in November when we debut at a town near you!

My most recent performances were at Grahamstown Bar & Diner, The Coromandel Musell Kitchen and resident artist at The Wharf Bar and Cafe and the Speak Easy wine bar in Thames. I am looking forward to my next challenge - to learn sound engineering/production for the purpose of completing my album and mentoring young up and coming artists. Prior to 2011 I performed mostly solo with a number of gigs with Chris Barclay my friend and guitarist as acoustic duo. We enjoyed several months in the Auckland circuit performing at the Juice Bar, Gables, The Occidental, Patriot, the Kings Arms and Harvest Bar. I also enjoyed several residencies with my band Nstinct, shows for Diablos Restaurant and Kamo to name a few. Prior to teaming up with these talented performers my career has taken me to the Civic Theatre, the Maidment Theatre, The Temple bar, Java Jive, Power Station and Rock Explosion as back up vocalist for Road to Amber. I teamed up with Sama Sugar licks for Sweet Waters and various charitable events. 10th March 2007 saw myself and Chris Barclay support breast cancer awareness at The Transmission House performing alongside a talented lineup of artists. I have produced several unreleased albums and more recently written and recorded several new songs. Currently working on my soon to be released album "Time on my hands"
