I am retraining in contemporary voice at Kingston University (having historically been classically trained). I am looking for all types of suitable vocal work. As a professional I can be counted on to be there on time, rehearsed, and ready to go if I commit to a project. I love to sing and I love to do it well. I love the art and craft of making music with other professionals who love what they do. TO GET IN TOUCH: merrellenem@gmail.com (or) 0773 999 6060
