About me
Currently writing music compositions for commercial, sync and creative projects. Most recent work for Uber and Vauxhall. I'm a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer from Uxbridge, West London. I've spent the last decade writing, recording, and touring globally with my two bands The Tuts and Colour Me Wednesday- supporting the likes of Kate Nash, The Selecter, The Specials and Juliana Hatfield and playing festivals such as Glastonbury, Bestival and Kendall Calling. My discography is spread across pop, indie, punk, rock, electronic ambient dream-pop, and most recently commercial composition and jingles. It was clear to me early on that there are challenges women face in the music industry, as it is predominantly controlled by male gatekeepers. So, in 2013 I started my own label, Dovetown, to release all my bands’ records on. I decided that taking on the role of the label itself, and also the manager and agent roles meant that we could maintain autonomy, and would give us freedom to create what we envisioned. This also gave me a huge breadth of experience and the opportunity to work in a collective representing women, LGBTQ+ and people of colour. I am available for commissions for any brief or project, but I'm specifically looking for: - original sync compositions - original commercial compositions - instrumental features - songwriting - session work
Projects
  • Vauxhall Corsa Griffin Edition
    Vauxhall Corsa Griffin EditionI was commissioned by Gimme Video to write a fast-paced 60 second song to launch the new Vauxhall Corsa. This was used on both the Vauxhall website and their social media channels. Recorded, mixed and mastered by myself.
  • Uber - Everyday Giants
    Uber - Everyday GiantsI composed, recorded, mixed and mastered bespoke music for the Uber ‘Everyday Giants’ campaign. The composition varied in length and dynamics across 6 different videos, used on both their Instagram page and website. I also produced a different 15 second composition for Instagram use only.
