Pleased to share with you the music video for my song Woke. Woke is deeply personal. It looks at the hypocrisy of virtue signalling and the trend based social justice jumping. When minorities facing prejudice/hate have been living with it the whole time, often ignored, often told we are making a big deal out of nothing or misunderstanding a situation. There is nothing to misunderstand about the residual and continued impacts of white supremacy.

My new single Self Help is coming out!
Self Help is a punch back at the Wellness and Self-Improvement industries profiting off insecurities and the constant barrage of advice we all get on how to live our lives. A commentary about the current self-help culture that puts the blame of systemic issues caused by inequality and deprivation on individuals by telling them to ‘trying harder.’
The song is a Peaches meets Devo sounding fun bouncy number, a chance to forget about daily pressures and just have a dance.
It’s finally happened. My album is out! Available on all music platforms

Newly published poem on Mxogyny Online platform for gender issues.
For some, grow up in an insecure family dynamic you can make you suspicious of accepting unconditional kindness and love, in case they are taken away or come with a catch.
We made a video. Filmed across five countries on a cheap Android Phone.

I am really pleased to have my latest poem published by Mxogyny. A fantastic online magazine dedicated to writing related to women’s issues, gender and gender identity.
