Dancing like nobody's watching
Loving like I've never been hurt
Singing like nobody's listening
Living like it's Heaven on Earth

I am a singer, a dancer, a traveller and a lover of life. I enjoy swimming, DJing, cycling, roller skating, walking and going to festivals, clubs and gigs. I also like acting, posing for piccies and the three R's (reading, writing and ranting). ;-)

Music is my life, I couldn't ever be without it. There are very few genres that I don't really like, but my favourites are Heavy Metal (of various types), Rock, Guitar-Industrial, Folk, Goth and Punk. Here are some examples of the bands I'm into:
New Model Army, The Levellers, The Clash, Billy Bragg, Seth Lakeman, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Visage, Ultravox, Boy George, AHa, All About Eve, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, The Gathering, Within Temptation, Evanescence, HIM, Type O Negative, Anathema, Jim Steinman, Sisters of Mercy, Crowded House, Roxette, Savage Garden, Pat Benatar, Transvision Vamp, Aerosmith, Def Leppard, The Smiths, Guns n Roses, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Jack's Family, Dreadzone, Skindred, Rome Burns, Screaming Banshee Aircrew, KMFDM, PWEI, Danzig, Devin Townsend, Kate Bush, Queen, Linkin Park, Marilyn Manson, Tori Amos, Portishead, David Bowie, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Siouxie and the Banshees, KLF, Delirium.

My three favourite songs are:
Rock and Roll Dreams by Jim Steinman,
Vagabonds by New Model Army,
Silence by Delirium.
They'll probably tell you a lot more about me than I can.

I am a conservationist by day, working for Natural England. My old job here was directly responsible for improving the environmental benefits of the farmed landscape. My new job sees me getting involved with this process at a deeper level, which includes (most importantly) the chance to work with bats! ;-)

Before you ask, it's not a lovebite on the side of my neck. It's a compound hemangioma. I think this comment best sums up how proud I am of it. :-)

My various web pages:
This is my main 'other page' and tells you a lot more about me as a musician. There are some old songs up on here if you really want to hear me sing. :-)
I seem to be on here more and more these days. Lots of random stuff and piccies of me out and about (frequently a bit tipsy!) ;-)

I have written various short stories, poems and songs, some of which can be found at You could call me a Goth, Alternative, Hippy or Metaller and all these labels would be true in some sense, false in some sense and meaningless in some sense (as well as true and meaningless, false and meaningless, true and false, true and false and meaningless in some other senses too...) I am interested in most facets of these subcultures, except the bitching.

I am nominally in a rock band named Angelust:
But we haven't got together for a while. I think we're waiting on a drummer so if you fancy joining us, please let me know!

And a side project that I'm working on with my boyfriend:

Other things/bands/people I care about

Sophie Lancaster: 26th November 1986 – 24th August 2007. Brutally murdered because of how she looked. Please donate whatever you can to her memorial fund so that her family and friends can help to stop anything like this ever happening again.

Petite and bijou singer and Crusty Goth Rock Star. Curious as the proverbial cat. Likes: good things. Dislikes: bad things. Madly in love with far too many people, including herself.
Strengths: Available at most ungodly hours for txt, especially with those who need her. Open minded and willing to see all people on the basis of her own interpretation of them. Fiercely protective of those she cares for. Enjoys dancing. Wears her heart on her sleeve. Curious about everything. Has a voice to blast any nearby eardrums... ;-)
Weaknesses: Guaranteed PMT prima donna one week in four. Never makes up her mind. Can be overly self-important. Capable of horrendous bad timing. Impatient. Asks too many questions. Has a voice that can blast any nearby eardrums... ;-)
Special Skills: Fastest txt-er in the west! Just don't expect to be able to understand a word. Driving of large vans for most purposes. Singing. Dancing.
Weapons: PMT bitchiness. Voice.
Motto: 'Love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the night.'
