    I'm a British, classically-trained songwriter in the pop and adult contemporary genres. I grew up on ABBA and disco, but my interests in music grow broader with age and I find myself fascinated with anyone from Lady Gaga, One Republic, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Adam Lambert, John Meyer and anyone else who can write a strong hook and a thoughtful, fresh lyric.

     

    Since getting serious about songwriting in 2016 I have won numerous first prizes and finalists in major songwriting competitions. "Rewind" the Alt-Rock category in the 2017 SongDoor International Songwriting Contest of 2017, "Still Not Sorry" won the Pop Category in the 2018 UK Songwriting Contest and in early 2019 I was awarded the Grand Prize for "Sing Me Your Blues" in the SongDoor competition. In 2018 I had seven of my songs played on BBC Radio Introducing.

     

    In 2019 I am embarking on a number of exciting projects - an album of pop songs for a female singer, an album of adult-contemporary tracks for a male singer, "unplugged" versions of both albums plus a piano-only instrumental album.

     

    My song "In These Heels" has also been arranged for SATB choir and will receive its premiere in June 2019 in Paris.

     

    I'm looking for song placements as well as publishing deals for my songs or my catalogue.

    Please feel free to contact me for further information.
