A personal message
My journey in music has been a rollercoaster ride and certainly a relationship unique to me. More than just music, the journey has been a spiritual pilgrimage leading me to new destinations I would never have otherwise dreamed of. Through time, my passion for songwriting only got stronger and my work as a counsellor developed into a passion for the well-being of performing artists.
My professional journey all began when I was only twelve years old. I started as a recording artist & live performer. My life in music gave me over 30 years of experience in the music industry. Songwriting emerged early in my career as a natural progressive step towards becoming a complete artist. Songwriting has served as a powerful tool for emitting emotions that I poured into the songs, reflecting my emotional place in life.
My music career is a pilgrimage with ups and downs encountered along the way. Overcoming adversities are only a part of my story that now equip me to pass on knowledge and expertise within the field of what it takes to be a solid musician with wellbeing at the core. The biggest key to succeeding is the art of self-belief and determination. There are, however, many other factors to take into account when embarking on such a career such as self-care and comportment.
I'm a great believer in mentors and my music mentors were Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson. These iconic figures had profound impacts on my musical development and sense of efficacy. As a signed artist, Mike Myers became my personal and professional mentor. Having a mentor or coach is an invaluable asset to your career as it takes a multitude of facets to become a quality artist, otherwise known as a 'superstar'. Honing in on your craft is an obvious area for development, but your growth as a person resides in your spiritual space, mental well-being, and the right psychological attitudes. These basic principles all interrelate into the constitution of what being a great artist truly is.
My new book talks about my memoirs written through an analytical lens throughout my musical journey. My recording career has seen the production of several albums throughout my career.
At fifteen years of age, the early start of my career had me privileged to work with acclaimed multi-award winner record producer Mike Myers. I've also had the privilege of working with songwriter/producer George De Angelis who was responsible for the mastered sounds of Rime. I can sincerely say that all creatives I've collaborated with have contributed enormously to my artistic and professional development. I am eternally grateful to manager Brinsley Forde who helped bring me out of myself and introduced me to the wonderful Tony Delaney for the creation of 'Miracle' now available to the world.
As a practitioner, I assist musicians with identity, resilience, and mental health. My doctorate research is within the field of health sciences. It is here I endeavour to contribute to the well-being of performing artists.
