She’s got the voice to cover Etta James at her peak, and her all-star band includes Paul Burgess form 10CC, George Newsome from Climax Blues Band and top lap steel player Peter ‘Sarge’ Frampton.

Her story starts not on the Mississippi delta but on the banks of the Whanganui River, in the rural village of Jerusalem, New Zealand. She’s also had the honour of performing her country’s national anthem at the openings of Great Britain v New Zealand Rugby League tests here in the UK, which were shown around the world.
