Empop is a singer, songwriter, musician, producer + recording studio owner/manager. She has just finished recording her first album with Brit award winner & fantastic producer = Simon Ellis. In May 2012 she was invited on BBC Radio - BBC Introducing.
I sing, play, write, record, edit, produce and mix everything myself.
Think Kate Bush meets Lily Allen! ;-)
Recently was invited on BBC Radio - BBC Introducing to talk about her music and they played her single 'Whispers In The Night' from her EP.
A collaboration with Mikee Goodman from Sikth and Primal Rock Rebellion.
Since I was little I've been writing songs. While growing up my father played me Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Carole King, Donavon, Mamas and Papas, The Beatles etc. So my music is highly influenced by the sounds of the 60's! I thank him for showing me these great singer / songwriters.
Mum and dad both play folk guitar and used to sing and play me to sleep at night with some of the great folk songs!
In 1993 we moved to France and I attended The British School Of Paris. We lived near Versailles for three years then moved back to Hertfordshire, UK.
I played piano and saxophone at school and studied GCSE Music and A-Level Music. Then I went to Uni to study Music Technology at The Royal Welsh College Of Music and Drama. I was the only girl on my Music Technology Degree!
In 1995/6 I knew Geri Halliwell and it was a very exciting time as the Spice Girls were just releasing Wannabe and it reached number 1 ! Geri inspired me so much to keep writing my music and to follow my dreams! I miss the Spice Girls!
After leaving Uni I worked at a couple of studios in London and now run my own recording studio in Watford! The Sound Cube. We record kids mainly! It's great fun! We make them a CD and DVD of their performance with a little dance routine too ;-)
Let's bring the fun back into music with some 'empop' ! Thank you for your support. Love Empop x x x
