Her critically acclaimed album “LUMA” was also awarded “Jazz Album of the Week” by Snarky Puppy manager Mike Chadwick for soulandjazz.com.

Her session credits include Toyah Willcox, Rumer, Soom T, Jo Harman, Ward Thomas, Julia Jacklin, Wolf Moon and she also featured in the house band for Comedy Central’s “Comedy Game Night” hosted by Liza Tarbuck, backing celebrities such as, Jay McGuinness, Big Zuu, Alexandra Burke, Denise Van Outen and many more.
