New Songwriting Group in Bristol

When I first started songwriting I was helped enormously by a fantastic songwriting group run by the brilliant Patrick Duff. The group offered a space to have a go, overcome your nerves, learn to use a microphone and get feedback on your songs in a safe non-judgemental space.

The group wound up some years ago and I’ve missed it so much I’ve decided to start a new group for women songwriters here in Bristol. I’m no Patrick Duff but I feel confident we can run a really supportive and encouraging group for women!

New Video! Before You Were Born.

I’m back from an amazing tour round the UK with Modou Diouf our Senegalese Sabar teacher. We’ve done workshops all over the place and performed at three great venues with his UK drum band Jappo.

In between drumming and performing I’ve had a couple of gigs of my own material one at Bristol Balloon Fiesta in August and one the other day at a local community event.

I’ve got a new song brewing at last and feel ready to get going again!

I’ve also released a new video which I hope you enjoy which Paddy Uglow recorded and produced of my trippy song Before You Were Born!

Indie Music Site

In case any of you didn’t know, I have a lovely page at Chandramoon with most of my songs and videos to listen to whenever you fancy! There are loads of great indie musicians there and a host of online radio stations with just about every genre of music catered for. Great for artist and listeners alike!

Here’s my latest video recorded by Paddy Uglow recently!

Email address etc

So I’ve set up a new email address for anyone to contact me it’s

so feel free to email me if you like.

I’m off for a few weeks in Gambia playing flute with my kora playing friend Moriba, sabar drumming and performing with Jappo at the Kartong Festival, hopefully writing some songs and catching up with friends.

See you end of February!

Website changes!

For various reasons I’ve decided to wind up my old website and stick to having this WordPress blog and a Facebook page.

There are too many sites to keep updated and I’m sure I can say all I need to say and post details of upcoming gigs or music releases here!

I’ll also keep publishing occasional blog posts about random subjects as well!

So, if you’ve been redirected here from or – you’re very welcome!
