I often sight Vera Lynn as one of my biggest influences when growing up. You could say her tapes and records were my first singing teacher so I am also very lucky I know, that thanks to the cyclic nature of fashion, the music I loved as a child and teenager (which was unlike all of my peers) is now so en vogue I can make a living singing the same treasured repertoire! It being 70 years since D Day in a few days time, my videos and recordings featuring Vera’s songs seem to be gaining a lot of hits, so I thought I would compile them all below.
We did a WWII tribute night at The Harringay Arms in Crouch End, North London last Saturday night and thanks to the fantastic response are booked to play there again on the 9th August!
Hope to see you then xj
