She enjoys a multi-faceted career that also includes acting in film, TV & radio, writing for radio, composition for film & TV and comedy improvisation.

Her songs have won two Ascap awards, an Ivor Novello nomination, both the Overall Grand and the Folk Prize from the International Acoustic Music Awards and Best Album Lyrics from the Indy Acoustic Project for her album Cheapskate Lullabyes.

Her song Strut reached No 4 for Sheena Easton in the US, while her own single Pilot of the Airwaves reached No 11.
She starred opposite Jonathan Pryce in the award-winning film ‘The Ploughman’s Lunch’, worked in theatre, fringe and West End, radio with Eric Idle and co-founded and performed at comedy-impro venue The Hurricane Club for seven years, working alongside many comedy icons including Bill Bailey, Harry Hill and Robin Williams.
