I'm a classically trained, Contemporary harpist. I write my own music and love to perform these pieces as well as all-time classics. I've performed for 500 people at a time as a soloist. I love to make my own arrangements of popular songs and can play anything from Deubssy to Drake.
Amy Winehouse- Back to Black
Sam Cooke- You Send Me
Florence and The Machine
Cavatina (The Deer Hunter)
Morning has Broken
Renie – Au Board Du Ruisseau
Marcel Grandjany – Reverie
Chaconne - Jeremiah Clarke
I’ve played all over the globe and in top hotels including The Waldorf, The Conrad off Satin James,
Headsor House and Cliveden. I was chosen to Fat Boy Slim to play in London to announce his tour. My passionate performances have taken me to many exciting and adventurous venues. As a musician, I've played at many functions and weddings and performed in notable places such as Saint Nicolas Church in Prague, Monserrat Monastery of Barcelona, Barcelona Cathedral and Hyde Park Barracks.
I also hold several residencies at top five star London and large country house hotels in and around Berks ... hire and Buckinghamshire as well as Gloucestershire and Worcestershire. I've played at events with such people attending as Mary Berry, Terry Wogan and Princess Anne.
I'm currently working with a spoken word rap artist and really enjoys exciting new collaborations like these and is always open for new ideas.
I was offered a contract aboard the most prestigious of all Cunard Ships, The Queen Mary 2 as a soloist, at the young age 22 and have now completed my second contract, aboard Queen Victoria.
I began my musical learning in Saint George’s School in Windsor Castle, with the principal harpist at the time, for the HRH The Prince Of Wales, Louisa Maria Cordell. I then went onto private lessons inside Eton College with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra’s harpist Sally Pryce and was also tutored by Los Angeles based Sarah Goss. I've also been under direction by many other wonderful harpists, including Jazz harpist Tara Minton and Suzy Willison Kawalec.
