Fatea review of Home is the Colour
Track from my debut EP - Home is the Colour
I've been singing since I was 7 ...it's the most natural and enjoyable thing to do every day. I play live gigs in both my local area and further afield, mainly my own material as I'm a huge supporter of independent musicians and their material. As a singer-songwriter, I'm always looking for opportunities to sing, write and collaborate. I write and sing various genres of folk, acoustic and chilled music. I use the piano and guitar as springboards for my writing process.
I'm currently collaborating with several musicians and will have lots of lovely projects to share with you soon!
I've been a singer-songwriter for several years now and have been working more recently with others, offering collaboration, toplining, lyrical and vocal services. I've been on several workshops and retreats with other songwriters and have loved supporting and contributing to other peoples creative journeys. It's been a joy to provide harmonies, backing vocals and lead vocals to other artists musical projects - drop susy wall music a message below if you'd like to discuss how I might help you in your next musical adventure!
I have a new EP out on all streaming platforms, called Home is the Colour.
It's inspired by what Home means to me and is a very personal collection of four songs, each of which signifies home to me in a different way.
I've been really lucky to be working with some lovely musicians and creatives over the last 6 months or so and one of these collaborations is with the wonderfully talented Gordon Giltrap MBE. Gordon is re-working some of his wonderful music to include vocals and has asked me to be part of this which is such a privilege.
You can read a little about what he's up to here... and what you can expect from our collaboration.
The awesome Sara Cox played my song "All wrapped up" twice after I responded to a tweet before Christmas! Check out the coverage from the BBC online here!
UPDATE: I am currently working on a Christmas EP which will include 2 new Winter songs alongside
All Wrapped Up and a New Year favourite!
