Embedded in this short description are spots of a career reaching as far back as 1996. Entering this summer’s songwriter competition by the Music Maker Association, Andy Wright (producer of Eurythmics, Simply Red and Luciano Pavarotti) and Nile Roger’s (personal friend of family) got to listen to “Distance, needed to get to know”. I could have been signed many times in all these years (wasn’t ready though as a child/teenager), but was always living in different places, either with money, or bound to domestic kitchen. I am so desperate to be on stage again. From 1993, the days of Barfly and the Good Mixer in Camden, I played and mostly sang with a band called ‘Subset’, reformed, now called Cassette Electrik (2007 gig with Human League). In 1997 I met Simon Raymond, then still with the Cocteau Twins in their Twickenham studio. Bella Union was in its newest form/days. From there I moved to being a singer only in ‘The Mean Reds’ 2000, playing all over London venues/pubs (now reformed since 2002 ‘The Cleo Whip’). Songs such as ‘Michael Jackson’, ‘You Hear’, ‘Pictures of you’, ‘Oh’, ‘House of an Art Lover’, were loved and cherished by audience and listeners. Therefore this new band collaboration/set up has existed since May 2007. Michael, Shahla and I have had lots of hard studio days. Currently still unsigned, I am hoping to be heard.
