April 2010 - October 2011
Club night - Sacrilege. My partner and I ran this monthly Goth/Alternative night at the legendary Q Club in Cambridge. During this time, we raised hundreds of pounds for charity through our cloakroom, ran a live mini-festival, ran several themed nights, DJ'd and worked the door. I kept the accounts for the club night, which resulted in us making enough profit to finance the release of Last July's début album.

We have recorded an EP and an album, and played gigs and festivals across the country, including Whitby Goth Weekend, DV8 Fest, Dark Waters and Midlands Goth Fest.

December 2005 - April 2006
Band 'Foxtrot Uniform'. Lead vocals and lyric writing. A short-lived project band with rehearsals culminating in a well-received live show at the 'Man on the Moon' venue in Cambridge.

November 2000 - June 2004
Band 'Skelliga'. Lead vocals, backing vocals and lyric writing. During my time with Skelliga we recorded 3 E.P.s and toured across England, playing many gigs and festivals in both headline and support positions, including the world-renowned Strawberry Fair free festival in Cambridge. We were also invited to play Glastonbury Festival but unfortunately split up before the event. I wrote most of the lyrics for Skelliga and was also responsible for much of our publicity material, including the band biography, promotional matter, CD art & flyer/poster design, & website design. I dealt with all the band's accounts & organised rehearsals, gigs, events & meetings, taking minutes during the meetings, & typing them up & distributing them to the rest of the band afterwards.

September 2000 - June 2002
HND in Popular Music, studied and passed at Anglia Polytechnic University. This was a wide-ranging qualification with training in performance (live and studio, solo and accompanied, improvised and rehearsed, session and band/solo work), marketing and promotion, event organisation, artist and venue management, studio production and recording, sampling and digital sound design, legal issues, world music and history.

June 1999 - June 2000
Band 'Fruit Tree'. Backing vocals. This band was formed while I was still at school. We performed several gigs, including a support slot for legendary thrash metal kings 'Napalm Death'.

August 1998 - March 1999
Band 'Livid'. Lead vocals and lyric writing. Formed for the Bishop's Stortford High School's annual band CD, Livid recorded two tracks on the compilation 'High 99'.

January 1998
Session 'Lady Morphia'. Backing vocals on two tracks of this five track EP which received 3/5 in Metal Hammer magazine and subsequently sold in record shops across Germany.

Previous to this I performed a cappella many times at a local Folk Club, busked at craft fairs and performed musically in several plays. I also had private singing lessons between the ages of 13 and 19 and am currently studying with several online programs.
