I have been singing on the circuit for over 20 years with music ranging from the 1950’s to the present day. You can listen to my solo clips and see photos in the gallery.

As I grew my love for singing grew and I began entering singing competitions. You can see a paper cutting of one of the competitions I entered solo. This is where I met Natasha Beckham, Hayley Hubbard, Anna- Marie Engledow, Louise Keeler, Lisa -Marie Gordon. All of these friends later became my work colleagues over the years in various acts which are showing on this website. Some acts are no longer available. They were only formed for a particular time like for example the millennium. However, some acts are still going strong today.

This website is dedicated to my friends/work colleagues to say” Thanks for the Memories” as well as for people to see my history. 

“Thank you ladies I could not have asked for any better people to have worked with over the years”.

Natasha then re- joined me a few years later to perform a new female duo act called Karnat. We performed songs from all eras. We only worked local for this act due to Natasha’s family commitments. There are no clips for this one just a few photos in the gallery. Natasha eventually retired a few years later to become a full time single mum of three.

The Decades Show – Hayley Hubbard and Anna Marie Engledow joined me for this show that was put together for the millennium. This show was performed all over the country at venues including theatres. Half an hour was dedicated to each era. It was a colourful fast paced show with many costume changes. You can see some photos in the gallery and hear clips. Whilst this show was put together for the millennium we did continue for a few years after due to the popularity of the show.

Head Over Heels – ABBA Tribute (Female Duo) – Anna-Marie joined me many years ago for this act and I am proud to say we are still going strong today. We will be celebrating 20 years working together shortly. We were the first female ABBA duo to perform in Norwich. This act began when winning a competition at a holiday park and gaining a summer season. It was my brother’s wish before he was taken to heaven that I went out on the singing circuit so after his death in 1995 when Anna-Marie asked me to join forces to get this act on the road I accepted for him. Back then we worked with six dancers. We later went on to travel the country as a duo working theatres, clubs, parties and are still doing so today. Have a listen to the clips and view some of the many dated photos. We perform all the cheesy, sing a long, well known songs of ABBA with colourful costume changes. We can tailor the show to make it longer with an additional mixed 70’s set. We can also team up with a Solo Blondie Tribute should you require two acts on the same evening. Please email me and I will supply you with her website details too.

I took a break from full time singing at the end of 2010 to study in accountancy. Whilst doing some gigs in 2011 and 2012 to fit in around exams. I returned to vocal work in 2013 and established this website in 2014.
