NEWS

The big news of 2021 is that I have just started a degree in Dental Hygiene at Teesside university! Over 300 people applied for this course with only 24 places avaliable so I feel very privileged. I have been a dental nurse for 17 years and can't wait for the next part of my journey.
Music is a huge passion of mine so don't worry, i'll still be writing new music and be out there doing gigs.

It's been so great to get back to gigging again. Performing at Selby town hall recently was fantastic, it's such an amazing venue.
It's been a while since I have performed there, the last time being a few years ago supporting the amazing wilko Johnson.
