I signed my first record deal with the independent label, Silver Tulip Music at fifteen and released my debut single at seventeen entitled, ‘It Don’t Matter.’ It became an instant hit and reached no.3 on the 5FM top 40.
I then released my first album, ‘Mirrors and Windows’ which delivered another top 10 hit, ‘Fallen for you.’
After school I continued with my music as well as attending Cape Town University and received an honours degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
I was then free to travel abroad and investigate different genres of music.
I released the EP ‘Looking Around’, which explored my fascination with dance music and club life. My music caught the attention of legendary deep house producer, Kenny Hawkes, who worked with me on the track, ‘Play the Game’ which went to no. 1 in Europe.
Due to the success of ‘Play the Game’, Sony UK licensed my song, ‘I’d Say Yes’ which went to no. 1 in Europe, Russia & South Africa and is still a firm favourite on the dance scene worldwide.
For my 2nd full-length studio album [‘Silent Scream’], I worked with the well-established British production duo, ‘Tin Tin Out.’ Sony music SA signed me and released my first single, ‘Empty Fantasy’ which went to no.1. Sony released two more singles from the album, both of which were hugely popular on radio [‘Impossible Love’ and ‘Harder than I thought’] I was nominated for a SAMA under the category of ‘Best Adult Contempory Album.’
In 2007 I joined forces with Theo Crous [of Springbok Nudegirls fame] to produce my next studio album with Sony [‘Saved By The Moonlight.’] The first single, ‘Home’ gave me my 9th top ten hit on radio and I was nominated for two SAMA’s: ‘Best Female’ and ‘Best Adult Contemporary album.’ ‘Saved By the Moonlight’ spurned two more successful singles, ‘The Only Thing’ and ‘Didn’t mean to call. At the 2009 SAMA’s ‘Didn’t mean to call’ was nominated for ‘Record of the Year’ – this is a category voted for by the general public.
In 2008 I produced, directed and starred in the ‘Home Tour Live’ show and performed to sold-out venues nationwide during October. My final show was recorded live and released April ’09 in conjunction with a follow up tour. It turned out to be a great year for me, as I went on to win a Style Award for most Stylish entertainer of 2008 and was nominated for two SAMA’s, Best Female Artist and Best adult Contemporary Album for ‘Home Tour Live.’
In 2009 I was asked to be a Youth Ambassador for the Independent Electoral Committee along with Natalie du Toit, as well as a 46664 Youth Ambassador for the Nelson Mandela Trust.
2010 I released my album ‘Look To The Edge.’ My first single Warrior reached no.1 on SA radio. The music video was added to the MTV Europe play list and I performed at the Sama’s with the Parletones, as well as co-hosted 5 Top billing shows.
2011 I received 4 SAMA nominations [Best female, Best adult contemporary, Song of the year for ‘Warrior’ and Remix of the year for ‘These Days’].
2011 garnered me 4 SAMA nominations [Best female, Best adult contemporary, Song of the year for ‘Warrior’ and Remix of the year]. I finished up 2011 by releasing ‘Days Go By’ with dance duo, Pascal & Pearce- it reached no. 5 on the national top 40 charts.
My 5th studio album entitled, ‘Say it to my face’ again changed musical direction and had a more electronic feel to it. The three music video’s for singles, 'You think you got it easy', ‘How you gonna do it’ and 400 miles can be viewed on youtube and all did very well on SA radio charts.
2015 started with me taking home the award for Most Glamourous Women in South Africa [Glamour Magazine SA awards.] I have just finished working on three exciting shows with three very different artists; Craig Hinds [lead singer of the band Watershed], Loyiso Bala and Kate Emmerson [life coach international speaker]. All three shows show a different side of me. I am currently in studio working on my new album.
