She has graced the stages of a huge variety of venues, ranging from racecourses to boats, in a range of musically diverse groups. She is also currently the writer for and member of a musical comedy act, and she is a published features writer for various magazines, including Cosmopolitan and Marie-Claire.

John
Critically acclaimed composer, pianist and guitarist, John has a enormous wealth of experience in the music industry. His prolific library music compositions are frequently used in television and radio, and he has released three instrumental albums, mostly playing acoustic guitar, but also some piano. He loves to play across the genres, but has a definite jazz leaning, with a distinctive tone which, to the initiated, recalls Pastorius' legato playing. A highly experienced live performer, he is the oldest and wisest member of The Sharpeners, and keeps the rest of the band in check during rehearsals, both musically and otherwise!
