Thank you for visiting my website.
Can’t believe it’s a new year already and what happened to January? It just disappeared. This site could do with an update and I have started to add some shows until end of March, I promise I will add the rest very soon. These days I also run a successful, busy Swedish micro-bakery here in Exeter called Fika Exeter. Don’t worry I haven’t stopped singing, I am simply being more selective with my gigs and take on a bit less these days but I still have jazz shows several times per month and some months several shows in the same week even. Please do visit my Live Shows page for all my upcoming gigs and/or follow me on social media and subscribe to my mailing list on Contact page to keep up to date with my performances, any music videos and collaborations.
Thank you so much for your continuing support. I am sure 2023 will be a fantastic year for all of us.
I hope to see you all at a live gig soon!
