Thank you so much for visiting my website.
It is a very difficult and crazy time for all of us at the moment and at a time like this, I am very grateful for my family and the special time I get to spend with my boys and my husband.
Whilst most of my time is dedicated to my boys now with their home learning and so on, I am hoping to finally be able to write some new music, learn new songs and practise the Piano during this lockdown period.
I hope to see you all soon once this is all over and in the meantime, if you haven’t already bought a copy of my 2018 album, it’s available in both digital or physical form, just simply click on this link Shop page.
You can also follow me on social media and subscribe to my mailing list on my Contact page to keep up to date with my performances (which of course won’t be for awhile given the current climate), any music videos and collaborations.
Sending you all positive vibes, please stay safe and see on the other side.
