Alright... so my EP wasn't what I was expecting.

Yeah. I thought it would be a way to burst my new found identity onto the stratosphere of a fresh life; a harmonious world of wispy angels floating on harp-shaped clouds and singing in a perfect ten part harmony of…

One EP done!

So! I'm done with the first round of my music career and what a cracking year it was!

Demons and the Shadow Aspect

This is the most bizarre of all my stories. 

I had a friend whose company bothered me intensely and I could never work out why. I felt tired when she was around. I felt that I couldn't trust her. I…

The Science of Intuition: what the US Army is really fighting for

US ARMY FOR INTUITION 


After discovering that soldiers who relied on intuition were better soldiers, the US army is formally researching the powers of intuition.  

  In 2012, the U.S. Navy’s Office of Naval Research decided to launch a research…

Open Mic UK - I'm out! :) 

Surely rejection should be the worst thing. Or if not worst, than at least bad. Surely it can't be the absolute best thing that has ever happened to you? 

But it is. I chose to sing Dream Lover at Open…

Open Mic UK Regional Finals  

September came and went. And tomorrow sees Open Mic UK Regional Finals. 

I've been deliberating about what to sing. There's always the piano-vocal option, but it does detract from the singing, particularly cos I generally find myself closing my eyes…

Guildhall Norwich with the Grapevine

Surely the best show yet. It was the show that I'd been waiting for, a chance to play where Ed Sheeran had played before he broke, a place where people love to listen carefully to the sound, a place where…

Open Mic UK

A crazy thing happened a week ago. After performing at Calm Festival, I headed over to Essex for what I thought would be any other audition: get up, set up, sing, go home. And that was kind of how it…
