Besides being a music teacher with piano and voice as my instruments, I am involved in a number of projects which maintain my connection to contemporary music through song writing and performing. Most of my efforts are directed towards my project Berne - www.berneofficial.com, writing and performing songs that have been described as ‘haunting, almost spiritual’. The debut EP ‘Conversation’ was released a year ago together with a music video for ‘In The Woods’ - goo.gl/44Jn8R.
At the start of 2016, I joined singer-songwriter Rob Harbour’s band as backing vocalist. The debut single ‘Tower Bridge Road’ was recorded at KORE Studios - . To commemorate the launch of debut EP ‘The Lighthouse’ two weeks ago, we went on tour with performances in London (Zigfrid von Underbelly), Brighton (The Brunswick) and Oxford (The Star and East Oxford Community Centre). As well as performing to and reaching new audiences, this was a highly rewarding experience both as a singer, as backing vocals require different skills to solo singing, and as a musician, to be working with talented musicians in a band environment.
Both these projects, Berne and Rob Harbour, will be performing at Proud Camden on Sunday 9th November, tickets available here -. I hope to see some of you there!
