A strong singer from an early age, I joined my school choir in 2000, and sang in choirs throughout my schooling (including the exclusive Chamber Voices choir in 2007/8). In 2008 I performed with the Macrobertson Girls' High School Chamber Voices group, which achieved first place in the “3BA Intermediate Choral Contest” as a part of the Grand National Eisteddfod of Australasia and were also awarded first place in the 2008 Booroondara Eisteddfod in the A Capella Choir 18 years and Under Section.
I also performed the vocal jazz duet at the Macrobertson Girls' High School 2008 Speech night.
Performing in musicals since 2002, I became more and more involved in musicals towards the end of my high school years, performing in the original 'Man in the Iron Mask' as the lead female, Louise De Vailliere in 2007, and again for the concert re-staging in early 2009.
In 2009-2011 I focused on my studies, and took up singing in performance again towards the end of my degree, performing at the Unnatural Selection Live 50th Podcast with Ukelele player and Singer Alexander Welsh as 'The Lame Ducks'.
In 2012 I started pursuing singing more intently, working with producer Kehinde Azeez on a variety of projects; and collaborating with singer/pianist Ella Motteram and singer/double bassist Tim Cochrane for a one-night-only performance at the MUSTWRAP2012.
As part of the 2012 Melbourne Fringe Festival, 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival, and 2013 Comedy Festival I performed in the cast choir of 'Choir Girl', a collaborative choral show between Attic Erratic Theatre and writer/performer Sarah Collins, directed by Celeste Cody, Music Arrangement by Tom Pitts, Choral Direction by Chrissie Robinson and Jessica Graham. As part of all three 12, 8 and 14 member acapella choirs, we sang everything from Britney Spears' 'Hit Me Baby' in both full Pop and the style of Gregorian Chant, to the Everly Brothers, to Petula Clarke.

"they spring to disconcertingly lascivious life to voice Susan’s sexual fantasies... ...To call them a ‘Greek chorus’ is to diminish both the eeriness and the hilarity with which these women satirise our preconceptions of feminine primness." -Mel Campbell for The Enthusiast
