“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?'
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
(Marianne Williamson - A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles")












Why this name?
Frustration at finding very few jazz musicians here in UAE lead me to look to my own inner band! ''Could I be the band?'' I asked myself, since I do play a few instruments. Hence, the name 'OneLadyJazz' is a rather ironic choice. I'll let you be the judge...............
Do you play live?
TEDX Abu Dhabi was a special televised performance for me. Currently I am The Resident Jazz Singer and Saxophonist at 'The Intercontinental Hotel' Westbay, Doha, Qatar. Playing live is always special, you never know what will happen. It is always full of the unexpected. It's wonderful to feel the audience respond to the emotions........
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Radically.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I'm very happy doing my own thing with my music and discovering my own voice and style for the first time ever.
There is a natural growth, so I don't want to change the direction in which I'm going.
I also have released my FIRST Smooth Jazz Album 'Shadows Of Light' (June 2014) which is now available worldwide - so no, I'm not interested in a recording contract at present.
Band History:
I love singing so much that I'm sure I was born singing! I can't go through a whole day without singing.
Music has always been an integral part of my life. Being part of the church choir was a haven for me at a very young age. I began on the piano then was encouraged to learn the accordion professionally at the age of 12. Although I learnt music to reasonable level, I always felt driven to play by ear.
College days saw me busking (singing/saxing) with a jazz band. There I was talent-scouted by a hotel-manager to play some gigs.
Years later I came back to the tenor saxophone again. I've now been playing for about 7 years. In a courageous moment, a few years ago, I threw away all my music/chord charts and decided to play by ear, no matter what, no matter where it did or didn't take me.
I don't regret that decision. It's both terrifying and exhilarating to play like this. There's always more to learn and further to climb ..............................
Your influences?
Billie Holiday. Blossom Dearie. Doris Day. Ella. Peggy Lee. Madeleine Peyroux. Astrud Gilberto. Jobim. Stan Getz. John Martyn. Marion Montgomery. Sarah Vaughn
Favorite spot?
The spot on which I am currently standing.
Equipment used:
Voice, (Buescher Aristocrat) Tenor Saxophone with Otto link Master link *3 mp, Roland stage piano, violin, tinwhistle.

As a sax player I choose to improvise by ear only, with no charts etc, using it much as you would a voice. Hence my playing leans towards the melody and lyrical. Inside my head, I am singing........

I am passionate about Torchlight Jazz. The melodies and lyrics are so timeless that in my work I aim to remain true to the essence of the original emotion in the songs, preferring to stick to a very naturally achieved sounds using only real instruments.
I also like to remain true to the original dynamic range of jazz songs in the hope to bring a richness of colour and flavour to all my songs. You will notice that my songs are a little longer - I believe this gives space for the song to breathe and allows the beauty of the original chord progressions to be enjoyed. It also gives space to transport the imagination.......

Since I am also a painter, I like to approach my work in the same manner, by creating many layers - I hope that the listener continues to find hidden depths and immerse themselves in the moment. Most of all, I hope my songs bring pleasure to the listener.
Anything else...?
I am also a British Listed Artist who exhibits in galleries around the world. In '2010 I was chosen by the World Art Foundation as on of the 'best 100 worldwide artists'. In 2013 I will be published in 'Best Worldwide Artists' Landscape and Portrait Art Books based in America (Kennedy Publishing)

With musical instruments I feel natural. With electronic instruments I tend to naturally break them.
