So, this is me. Ex-classical singer – Google or YouTube search me to see old videos – turned Pop/RnB songwriter. Thanks for making it on to my site! If you haven’t heard my music before click first on either the video or Spotify link for ‘Trance’, then move to my Instagram or Facebook pages )in links) to see snips of my songwriting. Come and see a gig (in ‘events’).
My music influences range from current pop, like Dua Lpa and Camila Cabello, back to singers like Amy Winehouse, Dido and Sophie Ellis-Bextor. You may also hear some of my favourite 90s RnB in my writing (Destiny’s Child were definitely the best!).
Education is important to me – It’s rewarding seeing young people flourish. My new backing singer, Lydia, is only 13 years old but has a lot of potential. My day job is music teacher at Great Yarmouth Charter Academy and I produced my first song video originally to encourage the pupils at my school to write music and get off their gaming consoles!
I have recently been working and gigging with Norfolk-based author, Louis de Bernieres, most famous for ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’. Louis plays acoustic guitar on my single ‘Trance’ and he will be on most of the EP tracks too. I love collaborating and it gives fresh inspiration for my writing. Louis said of me:
“Selina is a delight to work with. She has contributed an enormous amount to my recordings with her voice and violin and I’m glad to have contributed a little to hers too.”
Details of our mini tour this summer are on the events page..
My 6 song EP is set to launch as soon as artwork is finalised. In about a month it will be available on all major digital platforms and I’ll bring CDs to my gigs from this summer onwards.
Check out the video of Trance which was mostly filmed underwater n a local swimming pool. Producer Donovan Jones has made me appear to be in Ketteringham Hall’s lake – Ingenious!
