I have also been involved in Whisky Dram (Mel, Aus), Closet Octopus (Ham, NZ), and the Nobody Girls (Ham, NZ). I have performed with talented musicians James Hickey (Adelaide, Aus), Pepper Jane (Qld, Aus), and Aorangi (Ham, NZ).
I have done session work of vocals and violin for Coral (Ham, NZ), Reece Gielan (Ham, NZ), and Aorangi (Ham, NZ).
I have been performing from an early age as both of my parents are musicians and my mother would bring me onto stage with her to do vocal harmonies. My dad had his own home studio and often recorded me singing or playing violin onto his original songs. I have been playing violin since I was four but am mostly self taught. I improvise and play by ear. I began performing guitar, singing and jamming on violin at open mics when I was 18 and have since been in several bands in New Zealand and Australia. When I perform as a solo artist I play guitar or ukelele and sing, but with other bands I usually play violin and sing. I love to harmonise.
