 Helen is a Kent based singer and songwriter with a strong, practical, maritime background.  In other     words she does it as well as sing about it unlike most of us with a maritme music bent, with the exception of Chris Roche, who tend to keep our feet dry!  However Helen is very far from being "a one track pony"  Bob Kenward sums it up perfectly in his recent review of Helen's second CD "Honest and Poor" when he says:  "I
f you had Helen’s work filed under ‘seafaring’, think again: here you’ll find a body of melodic songs from a writer branching out, performed with a powerfully gorgeous voice and leaving you with a host of memorable phrases which hit you when you least expect them. Riches!"
Singing both traditional and self-penned songs her captivating performances have her  audience in gales of laughter at one moment, and in rapt attention the next. Her songwriting is out of the first drawer, don't take my word for it if Mick Ryan and Paul Downes regard it sufficiently well to include her song  "The Midshipman's Boast" as the opening track of their album "The Passing Hour", it is playing as I type, then I think that is sufficient evidence!  A night not to be missed, come and sing along with a very fine performer.
