I am really looking forward to performing my specially commissioned spoken word piece for this amazing cabaret night at the Fringe this year, amongst some brilliant talented performers:
As we say round here: ‘If they drap the bomb, yer tea’s oot!’.
A cabaret evening of top entertainment that also tells the story of the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), Scotland’s part in that and the winning of the Nobel Peace Prize in the context of 60 Years of disarmament campaigning in Scotland.
Featuring a specially-commissioned short film by David Hayman, music from Rab Noakes and Emma Pollock, comedy from Simon Munnery and Vladimir McTavish, spoken word from Cat Hepburn and Janet Fenton (Scottish CND).
Hosted by JoJo Sutherland.
Supported by Scottish CND.
I am excited to announce that I have recently been signed by Scottish Voice Overs.com.
Originally from Stirlingshire, she has lived in Glasgow for over ten years, and has a soft Glaswegian lilt to her accent.
Her voice is often described as sparky, fresh and fun, but with a professional tone, so it’s ideal for corporate and commercial projects.
Working as a performer and a spoken word artist for a number of years, she has delivered voiceover work for corporate videos, animations, tourism films, and social change campaigns.
She is also a prominent contributor for BBC The Social, with her poetry videos totalling millions of views. She has performed for BBC 6 Music, STV’s The Late Show and has featured on BBC Scotland’s River City. She has a versatile and engaging voice, suitable for energetic, youthful roles, as well as more mature and poised characters.
Last year BBC The Social commissioned me to write a short film set completely on a smart phone. After spending some time speaking to a focus group of young women from a local college, it became clear that shame is quite often a big part of being a young adult today.
The result is #SHAMED, featuring some wonderful Scottish talent including Jasmine Main, Lauren Aviah Clarke, Adam Cobb, Susan Hirst and directed and produced by Gill Davies. Over 40k hits already, but please like and share if it’s your bag 😘
