Today is World Gratitude Day and I am so grateful.
This a demo recording of Sanctuary.
It isn’t the most perfect recording because this is recorded in my Sanctuary, my home, and it’s dedicated to my landlord and more widely to Islington.
When I arrived in North London 8 years ago I had one suitcase and the same dream to make it in music!
This time I had married my music producer but it wasn’t until 2020 we moved to a home big enough for my first piano.
Although I had played piano since I was five, moving around meant I never had my own upright piano.
When we arrived in our new home after the pandemic was locking down London I lost my job and many friends and fans donated on a Go-Fund-Me to help me buy and restore the piano you are listening to me play! We think this beauty is over 100 years old. I can only imagine the comfort and joy it has given to people over the years. It was tuned by Steve Droy of Islington Pianos so another great person in the community, too!

I am grateful for music, for marrying the love of my life and for the silver-lining of starting my own company.
I am also hugely thankful for Diane Clarke at the whole team at The Accountancy Partnership as today we have filed accounts for my first year as company director.
