Bio

Millie is a sought after vocalist with a particularly distinctive tone and timbre. Alongside superb technique, this contributes to a unique vocal style. She has performed in many different venues and locations for events, festivals, parties and weddings. Her main vocal styles are jazz, blues and soul, but she also has extensive experience in pop and musical theatre. Millie has been singing her whole life, continuously learning and progressing. Having trained and performed in music throughout her younger years, she then moved to London to pursue a career as a professional vocalist and musician. Alongside solo adventures, Millie very much enjoys other vocal work including: bands, groups, backing vocals, session singing, songwriting, composing, coaching, and choir leading.

Millie started her teaching career as a secondary school music teacher. She then became a music specialist and coordinator across a federation of primary schools in London. Since then she has also worked as peripatetic vocal coach and choir leader for Hackney Music Service (London). Additionally, Millie taught singing and musical theatre sessions at Carmel Thomas Performing Arts School and assisted in leading Carmel Thomas Youth Singers, both prestigious in their own right.

Now living in Wellington, Millie is currently focusing on expanding her New Zealand music career as a vocalist, vocal coach and choir leader.
