    Holding Up The Ladder - Money Talks! Bonus Episode

    I joined Honey Onile-Ere, Sam Campbell & Shruti Kumar for this special bonus episode of Holding up the Ladder hosted by Matshidiso, focused on money and the music industry! "We talk about how to navigate the vastly complex and amorphous world of the music industry and how to do it as women and also women of colour. We talk about how to self advocate, how to negotiate, how knowing your value has a direct impact on the price you place on your work. We talk about allies and creating strong networks. We talk about the role that art generally and ...

    Hi all! I thought to celebrate Bandcamp Friday today I would like to spotlight another brilliant concert venue within Germany where I had the honour to play in 2012 (whhaaaaat??! time flies) as today sadly I won't get to play at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg with Anoushka as planned... Please head to Bandcamp today who are waving their fees each first Friday of the month to support artist during this pandemic for a sweet little collection of live recordings from my concert at the Philharmonie in Munich. Four songs are from my album Two-Headed Girl which went through various stages of instrumentation ...

    RECOMPOSE - Winner and Runner-Ups!

    We have a winner! This competition has been an absolutely beautiful experience! I wasn't sure what to expect as I have never done anything like this before but I was thrilled when SA Recordings, my honestly dreamlike label, loved the idea which I had while thinking about how to release the free sheet music and we consequently called first ever RECOMPOSE competition into life! A website was created, the news prepped for weeks, copy written and re-written, T&Cs meticulously arranged. Artwork was created and then one day, it went into the world. OH and the love and appreciation ...

    Elbphilharmonie! Love Letters!

    OHHH... how I miss Anoushka and London! At least Anoushka I get to see very soon, early November when we will play at the incredible Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg. As I am currently back in Germany I can safely drive up to Hamburg and sing again! I am really happy I will get to see my community again and perform and also see live music. It really leaves a hole in my heart and soul... I know in yours too. So hope to see some of you there! BISHI is also playing who released a wonderful track "Don't Shoot the Messenger" ...

    New Song 'Hope' Out Today!

    Hello Hello! Oh well... Sherdian asked me to think about the future when he asked me to contribute to his next album. I never envisioned the situation we are currently in. Although we probably should have known... But HOPE and all that it means to me is still very much current... Have a look below for a bit more info on the song! Find the whole album called 2068 here ! In Sherdian's words: ‘Hope (feat. Alev Lenz)’ by IN-IS I remember watching an episode of Black Mirror a few years ago (with a score by Martin Phipps) and in the final scen...

    Behind The Song

    WOW... it has been a little over a year now since '3' was released. Thank you all for the ride :) Along with it my sample library at Spitfire Audio came out too. It has been an incredible journey from finding the right label (how? Coming soon ;)) to making the record come alive physically and the sounds of the sample libary to emerge. We've heard a lot about all that already so now I also wanted to share a little something called "Behind the Song" with you - alongside the illustrations I made during the inception of the album (you ...

    Recompose!

    It has been one year since the release of my album '3' ! And to mark the 1 year anniversary I am releasing the notation to all the acapella pieces from '3' for free as a pdf to download ! Find the dedicated page 3 4 U here. Being in lockdown and all of my my shows cancelled I was upset that I couldn’t get my latest album '3' on stage as I intended. However, it helped me remember that when I wrote the album in its' very bare, a cappella way, I wanted it to be a modern folk tale - ...

    The Old Guard - Out Now

    The Old Guard movie is out since Friday on Netflix since and the score is out now too! Find it here: This recording will forever be special to me. Because this remote recording happened during lockdown, when I really wasn't feeling any music. I was trying to mainly process what was happening, like most of us. But music is who I am and loosing touch with myself would have been unhealthy. But sometimes just nothing comes from inside of you - I am still mainly taking in the great changes we are all currently facing - and that's when you ...
