‘Hello everybody! I know, I know it’s been nearly a month since my last blog post (naughty, naughty!) I’m not sure where the last few weeks have gone!? It’s been crazy times (as per). On the plus side this means I have a lot to talk about! 😉 So where did we get up to? Oh yes, I was jetting off to Holland for ‘New Skool Rules’ music conference. Well! What can I say.. I had an absolutely amazing weekend where I met some awesome talented singers/musicians who have been so inspiring and have made some great new friends and associates. I really can’t recommend this event enough to fellow singers/musicians. It is such a fantastic networking platform, the organisers Henca and Greg work so hard to make this event happen and I can’t wait to go to the next one.
In other news, I have also started recording my very first music video! Filming kicked off Saturday 13th June and the second day of filming is due to take place Thursday 25th June. I am working with Robert Watts of Robert Watts Photography, who is filming/directing the video. Big thanks to Cuckoo Farms of Colchester, Essex who let us hire one of their art studios for the day! The video is for ‘Brushing Off the Dust’, which is the first song on my EP. Haven’t heard it yet? The links to the digital platforms are all on my homepage, take your pick and let me know what you think 🙂
Other news; I am excited to say I am working and co-writing with Simon Gogerly, who is a Grammy Award Winning Producer on a new song.. Stay tuned on developments! There’s also the possibility of collaborations on the horizon.. stay tuned on developments!

Please see links below, which all relate to everything I’ve spoken about in this blog. I’m so grateful and excited about all the opportunities, which have come my way recently. I’m working hard and living proof that it’s never too late to change your life and go after your dreams. #dreamsdontworkifyoudon’t!
