I was born in Basildon, Essex back in 1980 - that's right, I am an Essex girl!
I have 2 lovely brothers (Matthew & Chay), 2 wonderful parents (Helen & Roy), 5 adorable nieces (Abigail, Grace, Emily, Isabelle & Ruby), 1 gorgeous surrogate nephew! (Bear) and 1 beautiful Godson (Sam).
have directed the Basildon Junior Schools Music Festival in the past and am returning this year, and I have been the resident MD for the Chelmsford Festival for the past 7 years - this involves 1000 children singing their hearts out....
At 18, I was approached by my music teacher who asked if I would come and sing with his Function band at weekends - a great opportunity which I snapped up! 'Sunset Boulevard' was a typical Function band, playing all the standards for Weddings, parties etc.
As the band began to fold, my music teacher, now very good friend, John Stevenson asked if I wanted to be in a duo with him, so 'It takes Two' was formed in 2000. We worked up until the end of 2002 as I had now met the lovely Nikky Napier who asked me if I would like to join 'Calico'.
