Phoenix is a piano/singer-songwriter. She performs a blend of improvised jazzy bluesy pop, rock R&B and classical styling on songs from the oldies to present day, and she sings them self-accompanied on live piano and sometimes the acoustic guitar.
Phoenix J progressed from singing in choirs in her native Singapore to running her own Firebird studio and finding herself alongside Elton John in the top 40 charts with her debut release Binary Star.
Having toured globally, and along the way garnering accolades such as winning Best Dance Song in the US Just Plain Folks Music Awards, she has now settled in the rural West of the UK. From here she released a second solo album, Junkk, whilst also fronting for London-based electro-rock band greenhaus.
This critically-acclaimed collaboration has a global following, enticed by their sonic wall of sound, complemented with Phoenix’s ethereal stage presence and vocals. Their newest studio offering, "A Fools Paradise" with the title track written by Phoenix herself, has now been released.
This year will however see Phoenix J revisiting her acoustic roots. Whilst working on a new solo album, she will continue her journey of musical self-discovery, presenting soulful and jazzy style music on voice and piano.
