I was a Drummer / Performer / Leader in Theatrical alt-samba drumming band Deatbeats for 5-6 years (www.deatbeats.co.uk) performing at festivals (Kendal Calling, Beatherder) club nights (Manchester Academy, House of Vans) and opening for artists such as Ibibio Sound Machine, Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, Krafty Kuts, Sub Focus) until 2018 when I left to devote more time to pursuing acting. Predominantly I enjoy singing for fun & to expand my range. I am experienced contralto & have a semi-professional training standard (have performed at the Royal Albert Hall, London & DeMontford Hall, Leicester) and have an aptitude for learning by ear, picking out interesting harmonies and learning lyrics quickly.
