I was recently lucky enough to be nominated for an award-Best soul/R&B/gospel album for 2013 and I won!!! It was presented by PBS radio who are instrumental in my career, having played my music on independent radio for years
I am excited to announce that I have now been nominated for best female in the EG awards which is amazing!! So if you have a minute please feel free to vote for me here!!
I recently did some backing vocals with the fabulous and charismatic Tim Rogers on his new TV show Studio at the Memo. It's actually on Foxtel but will be aired on SBS later in the year!! Meanwhile it's available on itunes!!!
Also the weekend just gone (July 28) I played my first ever Splendour in the Grass with the Bamboos.
Along with thousands of people and acres of mud I very much enjoyed myself! The Bamboos got a little mention which you can access in this link!!
It was great to be back in Byron-the site was different to the Bluesfest site but very much the same vibe. There were a few issues with the weather and the traffic, and Frank Ocean cancelling, but all in all a very enjoyable festival!!

New Album 'Still Life' available to buy early exclusively to the Tru Thoughts official web-store!
By turns wistful, uplifting, poignant and simply smoking hot, ‘Still Life’ is brimful of bright, accessible funk and sultry soul, served up by the velvety voiced diva with a healthy dose of disco inspired boogie. The album was co-written and produced by close collaborator Lance Ferguson (Lanu/The Bamboos), whose versatile production skills – as showcased across his many Lanu and The Bamboos releases - snap into action here with a classy updating of the ‘70s dancefloor sound. Exquisite string and horn arrangements on the record sit amongst emotive piano melodies, driving drums and the strut and snaking groove of Ferguson’s guitar.

Changes / Nothin' Else To Beat Me
7" Available now on the Tru Thoughts Official Online Store!
'I felt that this new album was branching out into slightly different territory with the disco feel, especially with Counting on you as the double a side for digital. Counting on you has a kind of Jackson 5 feeling to it, so I thought I needed something for all those soul djs who have kept the faith and who only play vinyl. Nothin' else to beat me is very much a dyed in the wool Auldist/Ferguson track and will serve to remind our soul audience that we are still here!!'
