How I can help

Music connects the heart and soul, often expressing things which can be difficult to say in words. This beautiful connection is a wonderful and special thing.  I can help, by performing your loved one’s favourite song or leading music for your congregation to join in with.

Listen …

I can sing one or up to 4 songs, providing my own backing music where needed, either in a Church, place of worship, Crematorium or for Humanist or other non-religious events.

I have thousands of songs in my repertoire (see list for a selection) and if you have something in mind, I am more than happy learn this for you.

I can also sing – unaccompanied if appropriate – at the grave side, or at any other point.

Why me …

Part of my work is NLP and healing. I have experience of family and friends passing away, both suddenly and after long illnesses. I want to help take away some of the anxiety of preparing the perfect tribute to your loved one and to help you to provide meaningful music that’s right for you – a beautiful celebration of life or for a moment of reflection.

 Attention to detail and a bespoke service are key to my work.

 Every song will be performed with love and sensitivity.

Who I am …

I am a singer, vocal coach, NLP practitioner, drinker of tea and lover of life. I live in
Stoke on Trent with my partner, sons and fabulous dogs.

I have been performing since the age of 7 & toured nationally as a solo singer and with bands. I am ‘vocal coach to the stars’ – credits including Celine Dion, Lady GaGa, Paloma Faith, Annie Lennox & following the moving experience of the funeral of a very close friend, I extended my work to singing at funerals, which I see as an absolute privilege & honour to be able to do.
