Single release with DJ Turner James AKA DjTj
Having teamed up just months before and having to work separately due to lockdown restrictions, on Friday 10th July we released our first single ‘Flying High’! You can find it on all major platforms and right here…
Jays Debut Show
On 25th February 2020 Jays made their band debut at The Brunswick. We had 2 incredible support acts and a surprise visit from my twin brother and his girlfriend who had driven all the way from Bristol after work just to see our first show! It was such an incredible surprise and a joy to have them there 🙂 Thank you so much to everyone who came down to support our first show and we look forward to many more!
Teaming up & creating ‘Jays’
I have teamed up with the fabulous Danny J Grant to get my EP finished. We’ve added some of his songs and really worked on what I had to start with and we have become ‘Jays’! Some of the songs are sounding great already and we can’t wait to share them with you.
Back on the high seas!
I’m working with a new band called Spitfire! We’re working for P&O for 6 weeks crossing from the UK to Holland (hello Rotterdam and Amsterdam!) and I’m recording vocals for my EP demos whilst Danny is working hard on the instrumentation back in London.
I only went and got a ticket didn’t I!!!!! The first year I’ve had my own, after working 2 years and going with friend’s on an artist pass last time. Oh I love that place, I always say this “there’s something about the Earth there!” It’s true, I’ve stood there infront of the Pyramid stage when it’s only crew and workers there, no artists, no audience and it’s still incredible. Really look forward to it! I’ll also be applying to perform there through their competition so cross your fingers for me!
Soulful Sounds – The only London duo you need to know about!
I’ve teamed up with the fabulous Adam Bridges to create a piano/vocal duo performing soul, pop and R&B with a harmony pedal for some beautiful layers! Check out the Soulful Sounds section of the website to watch our brand new promo video by clicking here!
4 months on a cruise ship completed! I sang most days and visited places I never thought I’d see like Fiji, Vanuatu, New Caledonia and Papua New Guinea so all in all a wonderful experience!
Here I am performing in the Marquee Theatre on board the Pacific Aria.
Until the beginning of April I will be rocking as lead vocalist of the party band on board the Pacific Aria for P&O Australia. If you need me, I’m probably songwriting and sunbathing!
A Music Video! Crackerjack Peach!
We’ve finally agreed on a band name! We love it and hope you do to! We’ll be announcing and launching the band soon but for now you can check out our music video! #sneakpreview
Back in London after a lovely festive period in Germany and at home in Shropshire! It’s time to get songwriting and in the next couple of months my band rehearsals will begin, can’t wait! We’ve got a new band name in our heads that’s a little more exciting that Amy Owen… we’ll let you know when it’s set!
December in Hamburg!
For the run up to Christmas I’m singing and dancing in Hamburg in a big circus top! Lots of festive fun.

Here I am performing the Christmas classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You”
