NON PERFORMER / I WAS LESS THAN AMAZING
A devised text-based solo performance by non performer
The London-based singer, has just released her début single I was less than amazing, on One At a Time, There Are So Many record label. A ‘proper’ album is to be released soon. With enigmatically ethereal vocals she demonstrates the breadth of her interests. Her music is, yes, very self-aware, very meta, but it’s also beautifully crafted. It really is catchy as hell, and you can actually dance to it.
“Her hazy, psychodelic sound embraces layered and delayed vocals and warmth and distortion that very much sounds like a cassette tape being played on AM radio” – non-existent Magazine

I create live performances.
I use the body, text and audiovisual elements. I worry about words so I try to find metaphors.
I’m concerned with the abuse of words and images.
I question if my work is merely a susceptibility to emotion.
