|Hi There and Welcome!|
I am an Anglo-Belgian singer and cabaret songwriter. I perform a mix of gorgeous French chansons: Piaf, Brel, Trennet, Barbara ... Argentine Tangos, French Django-style Jazz, swing and wonderful new arrangements of anything that takes my fancy. I've worked all over the UK and in France, ranging from London's South Bank Centre to my all time favourite Brasserie Toulouse Lautrec, in Kennington, and I'm based in Christchurch, Dorset.
I sing with two superb bands, Cabaret Vérité in London and Musique A Trois, Dorset/Hants-based but happy to travel. Plus I am a regular guest singer with others which is always terrific fun. We aim to delight serious musos - as we have stunning arrangements and musicians who are all stars in their own right - and also lovers of theatrical-style cabaret. Our shows adapt beautifully to private functions, intimate theatres, music pubs, restaurants festivals, even barges! Our style is vintage glamour with a modern twinkle. Show dates below.
