Hey guys and gals. Welcome to my official website.
I began my singing career at the ripe old age of 6, while in the school choir. My travels in the choir took me to several London venues including the Royal Festival Hall.
When I hit my teens, my attentions turned to my parents rock covers band. Here is where my love for the heavier side of life started. My parents allowed me to unleash the vocals live on stage to tracks from Whitesnake, Motley Crue, Eagles to name a few! Thanks mum and dad!
Once in my early twenties, my taste grew heavier. I started to turn my attention to bands such as Arch Enemy, Nightwish, Machine Head. Here I discovered (thanks Angela) that girls can scream too!
I proceeded to learn to scream with the almighty Melissa Cross and continued to develop my melodic vocal skills with classical vocal trainers and tuition with none other than, Floor Jansen (Nightwish, ReVamp, After Forever).
Now I am very privileged to be fronting my own projects. Since 2014 I have developed my live performing and range to adapt to the original project that was Winters Edge.
Originally, Winters Edge, was a project band with various different vocalists creating amazing songs written by my long term friend, Jeremy Ross Lawler. Once deciding to take the project on tour, I had to adapt my vocal styles to cover many different types of vocals to pull off the live shows.
Over time, my range and skills have grown with a lot of practice, and yours can too!
Now, between gigs, tours and recording, I love to teach others to strengthen their vocals and share what I have learnt over the years.
My other hobbies include, graphic design, photography and
co-running my own festival (chuckfestofficial.com)!
