I felt a strong impulse to sing, create, listen and dance to music from a very early age, and I have been pursuing the transformative alchemy of sound, art, music, and voice ever since. I divide my time between performing, recording, songwriting, teaching, speaking at events, and exploring all aspects of voice.
The magic of singing has lead me to tour all over Europe Asia and the USA as both lead & backing vocalist, and featured artist, and to collaborate with many music producers as a singer and songwriter.
My musical taste is very broad and inclusive, I don’t confine myself too much to genres in singing or appreciating music. To me music is either good or bad. I consider that the whole universe and every atom of our bodies are made up of pure waves of sound vibration, and am fascinated by cymatics mantra, and the deep and profound effects that sound and music have on us all.
I grew up listening to an eclectic mix of Soul, Jazz, Gospel, Blues, Funk, Reggae, Pop, Country and Latin music including: Dinah Washington, Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, James Brown, Sam Cooke & The Soul Stirrers, Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Nancy Wilson, Michael Jackson, Otis Redding, Dolly Parton, Julie London, and Elis Regina, amongst many others.
I sing 1950’s RnB, Rock & Roll, Soul Funk, Blues, Jazz & Bossa Nova Samba, and every genre from reggae to kirtan and mantra, at both private, public and corporate events. I have sung at many famous music venues and festivals, on TV and Radio shows all over Europe Asia and the US. Including:
