As a saxophone player and musician I have practical experience through years of playing and study. I am currently persuing a career as a singer-songwriter and performer and I currently write and play in three bands: my own band project, Scarlett In The Wilderness (on soprano sax), and Alamakota (on soprano sax).
I have had experience singing as part of my Choral scholarship in the world-renowned Queen's College Choir, Oxford, and from singing in the international-award-winning a capella group Out of The Blue for two years.
