The making of me
Prior to my Misfit life...
Music has always been a huge part of my life from a very early age, there wasn't a choir or a school band that I wasn't involved in.
Aged 9 I began to play the clarinet and a little less than 10 years later I signed the dotted line to join the Royal Air Force as a Musician based at RAF College Cranwell Lincolnshire.
I have travelled the world, from the Edinburgh Military Tattoo through to New Delhi, India and Wellington, New Zealand in order to promote the military music and raise morale through music.
During my military career, I have performed on stage with the likes of Brian May and Kerry Ellis during the end of their Anthem tour and huge concert halls such as Birmingham Symphony hall as part of the Massed Band Tours.
It is sad but at the end of 2020 I will be leaving the Royal Air Force after my 15 year career to support my young family and to concentrate on my performances as Madam Misfit.
The making of Madam Misfit...
I began singing quirky covers back in 2013 following my attendance to Professor Elemental gig in Lincoln UK where I mentioned to him that I sung - immediately he flung his arms open and invited me to join him on stage the next time he return to the area.
Within a few months I was singing next to the good Professor with my quirky covers plus my eyes and ears had been opened to the world of Electro Swing and thus this happy partnership continued, once a year for a about 6 years alongside my military career.
Then in 2019 I decided to properly establish my sidekick act as a standalone performance and thus Madam Misfit was born.
My music has attracted the attention of fans from Steampunk through to Chaphop and electroswing lovers, I love the fact that my music is listened to by such a diverse audience and I hope to broaden this even more.
I have performed on stages across the UK alongside some of the biggest names of Steampunk and am proudly supported by the label "Electroswing Thing" having released singles and now and album with them.
I hope you will continue to support me beyond my military career where all the good attributes and skills my RAF career has taught me will be ploughed into my shiny new future.
