I sing, play, write, record, edit, produce and mix everything myself.
Think Kate Bush meets Lily Allen! ;-)
Catchy hooks and melodies that get stuck in your head!
I have just completed my first album with fantastic producer Simon Ellis
(Brit Award Winner & Musical Director for Britney Spears & The Spice Girls
tours etc . . .)
How It All Started
Growing up I was extremely lucky to be brought up by parents with excellent taste in music! (Well I think so anyway!) With the sounds of The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Pink Floyd, Fleetwood Mac, Mama’s and Papa’s etc. I was highly influenced by some of the greatest singer/songwriters and bands of the 60’s. As soon as I was given my first keyboard when I was 10 years old I started making up melodies and pop songs galore! In 1993 we moved to France and I attended The British School Of Paris. We lived near Versailles for three years then moved back to Hertfordshire, UK.
At school I played piano and saxophone and studied GCSE Music and A-Level Music. I discovered a love of Music Technology which enabled me the freedom to compose songs on the computer and layer up different sounds and instruments.
When I was in the sixth form my friends labelled me and my music ‘Empop’. Empop represented happy, catchy pop songs and also represented my image – flower power hippy chick!
I became best friends with Geri Halliwell’s niece at school before anyone knew who the Spice Girls were. Geri used to live with my friend and I would regularly be at their house hearing about this new band called ‘Spice’ Geri was in and how she was going to be famous….. Then they made No. 1 with Wannabe!! It was a very exciting time. Geri inspired me so much to keep writing my music and to follow my dreams! I miss the Spice Girls!
I studied Music Technology at The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (the only girl on my course!) and then worked in a few studios in London before starting up my own studio in Watford High Street – The Sound Cube. www.thesoundcube.co.uk
Empop Makes Front Page News!
After working on my first album 'My Imaginary World' with Simon Ellis I knew I needed to try and draw some attention to my name and internet sites/pages. In December 2012 I came up with an idea and recorded a cover of ‘Santa Baby’ by Eartha Kitt for Xmas and made a funny music video for it. I taught myself how to edit it on Final Cut and loaded it up on Youtube. Within 2 days I had The Watford Observer on the phone! Within 1 week I’d had a 1000 views and made it onto the front page of The Watford Free! (Search Empop – Santa baby on Youtube to view!) In January Empop was also featured in local ‘My News’ magazines for Chorleywood, Rickmansworth, Croxley and Watford.
Empop has had a lot of support from the BBC including a live interview at BBC Three counties Radio and several plays on BBC Radio 6 by music mogul Tom Robinson.
This year I will concentrating on getting more national radio airplay –( keep an ear out for ‘The Garden’ on BBC Radio 2 from April!) and gain as much exposure for my album as possible. I will also be making a music video for ‘The garden’ this Spring – come on flowers wakey wakey! I have just made another funny video for Valentine’s Day – A cover of Girls Aloud, Love Machine. You can view my videos here.
I self-released ‘My Imaginary World’ and it is available now on iTunes to download and many other internet stores.
