“Work hard, play hard. Get up and make it happen…”
I’m a 28 year old female musician from South Africa. I’ve been playing guitar since the age of 12 and have had over 10 years of combined guitar and vocal music training.
I’ve had many ups and downs throughout my life and I’m sure there will be many more to come but one thing has always remained the same and that is my love for music and art. Music, and playing the guitar specifically, is my absolute passion and I cannot survive without it.
I’m fortunate to have rubbed shoulders with many pro-level musicians, both locally and internationally and have shared the stage with bands including: Cannibal Corpse, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Hate Breed, Becoming the Archetype, Periphery, Norma Jean, Epica, Kataklysm, Alestorm, Septic Flesh, to name but a few.
I’m currently an Elixir String endorsee as well as the first and only female musician to be locally endorsed by Ibanez Guitars.
Although Metal is my preferred genre, I do and have performed in many different mixed genre bands and projects and you can always stay updated through my website and see what I’m working on.
I’m also always excited to work with like-minded musicians, so please feel free to hit me up.
Please CONTACT ME for more information should you feel the need.
