A child of the 60's, Fi was brought up on a diet of Led Zep, Deep Purple, Eagles, Pink Floyd as well as Neil Sedaka, Paul Simon and Fleetwood Mac. She soon learned what made a good song.
Her solo singing didn't start until she was in her late teens when she lived with her parents in Marbella. She sang in piano bars and learned a lot about performing. She recorded her first demo in Paris with Michel Amsellem and Tareena Craze - both very talented and successful musicians.
Over the years, back in England, she worked with other songwriters and musicians in the South and in 1995 she met Rick Chase (Graffiti, Mama's Boys, Kings all, Double Cross, JCQ) when he needed a backing singer for his band.
As a singer/songwriter in her own right, Fi has supported The Korgis and Charlie Dore as well as opening ‘Guilfest’ in its final year in a folk/pop trio. She wrote songs with Chris Neil (Celine Dion), Bill Padley (Shayne Ward, Atomic Kitten, Holly Valance & Ivor Novello winner) and Martin Sutton (Leanne Rimes, Roachford).
Fast forward to 2020 and Fi first supported John Coghlan's Quo, despite having a broken hip and ribs from a motorcycle accident in Bali. This didn't stop her though and she continued to do the support and was part of the show on John's Farewell Tour throughout 2021.
Also, in this year, she joined The Blue Lena - a fabulous southern rock sounding band bringing her harmony backing vocals into the mix and recording for the album with Richie Yeates (Desolation Angels, and Bon Jovi tribute band "Non Jovi").
