Biography

This guitarist is a solo fingerstyle acoustic guitarist based in the heart of the Chilterns.
Her trademark style features lyrical melodies with rich chordal accompaniment, reflecting her wide range of musical influences.
With an eclectic repertoire, which includes popular classics, celtic, blues, jazz and original compositions, she can provide music appropriate for your venue.

After picking up a recorder at the age of 3 and learned to read music before being able to read words. She started taking classical guitar lessons at the age of 10 and rapidly progressed through the Trinity syllabus, whilst also learning to play flute and saxophone. Somewhere along the line, an acoustic guitar entered the house. It once got taken to a classical guitar lesson…not exactly a well-received move!! A-levels arrived, and her guitar playing took a back seat, until, more than 15 years later, she was given a cd by Australian fingerstyle legend Tommy Emmanuel. Upon hearing the opening notes of the opening track, she knew it was time to pick up a guitar again and to learn how to play acoustic fingerstyle guitar. The rest, as they say, is history.

Appearances at local open mics soon established a following for ‘the girl who plays guitar’ and gigs supporting well-known names on the fingerstyle circuit, such as Clive Carroll (UK), Bruce Mathiske (Australia) and Gareth Pearson (UK) followed. After a highly successful EP, her debut cd was released in February 2009.

"Thanks so much for your absolutely amazing guitar playing this weekend. We had lots of people comment on how great you were. Thanks also for learning a new song for us, you really went the extra mile." Abbie & Dan

"This rising talent’s debut CD is chock-full of her masterful and mature solo acoustic guitar work and shows just why she’s already being compared to the top players in the field. Influenced by a broad range of styles and performers, from Bach to Sting, she’s composed a superb collection of 11 pieces which are certain to garner interest from many quarters. Her strings ring beautifully clear throughout this self-produced set, illustrating her skill with dynamics and harmonics. This is especially apparent on the title track and the delicate Spellbound, where solo note passages are used to maximum effect."
Keith Ames - Musician Magazine (2009)
