This page explores my collaborations with other artists in the domain of music, dance and theatre. Some are one-off collaborations; some are ongoing projects. I love to connect on a vibrational level with other artists across different mediums and remain open to what we can create together in the spirit of love, connection and authenticity.
Sparky In The Clouds
Sparky is the musical meeting of myself, Miranda Perkins and Mathias Castagné. Rooted in the simplicity of two lead voices and one guitar pertaining to a folk aesthetic, this project has taken many twists and turns over the years leading to fruitful collaborations with Piers Faccini, Zamora Productions and Yodelice to name a few!

This is a one-off collaboration with French rock/rap trio Audio Immune. It’s a live performance of one of their songs filmed in Montreuil near Paris. It features a theatrical dance improvisation in which my aim was to marry the energy of physical movement with the music of the band, paying particular attention to the dramatic through line of the lead singer.
Recording vocals on this beautiful song by Talvin Singh was such a wonderful process. We recorded the vocals at Talvin’s studio in Suffolk and then performed them live at the Royal Festival Hall in London for his retrospective concert “OK and Beyond” in 2019.
Audessey and A Cat Called Fritz (Coffee Break Records)
During my early years of living in France I did several vocal recording sessions for Coffee Break Records, a hip-hop label based in the suburbs of Paris. My memories of these sessions are so fun with so many wonderful friendships and good times shared. This song is a transatlantic collaboration between one of Coffee Break’s beat-makers, A Cat Called Fritz, with American rap artist Audessey, featuring vocals recorded at my cousin’s studio from myself and Miranda Perkins.
Brain Rays and Parish News
This project was born in the beginning phases of lockdown 2020 when Max Sobol invited me to choreograph a dance for people to learn in their living rooms, which was later edited into a music video. James Stewart, one of the artists behind this track also mixed my latest album as a result of this connection.
Musiques du Monde RFI with Thierry Negro
In this project many artists came together from all over the globe to contribute to this beautiful song. I collaborated with Serena Ramsey to put together a dance to be featured on the video. It was filmed on a sunny London afternoon by Joe Magowan, with costumes made by Lou Salasca.
When working in the medium of film the performance shifts to something intimate in feeling, compared with the energy of a live audience. Thus the person or crew behind the camera has a big impact on the vibration of what is produced by the performer. Such a rich and deep artistic relay is possible here for me. I really enjoyed filming this dance video with director Andrew Corrigan at Three Mills Film Studios in East London.
