Tamsin and Gaby are currently collaborating on further original material.

Tamsin's tasteful lyrics tell stories, inviting the listener on a journey and capturing the imagination. You can tell when an audience is hooked by the story you sing. Tamsin's words never fail! Gabrielle Ducomble, Singer

Tamsin’s own lyrics are both witty and elegant, and her translations display an ability to capture the intention and style of the originals. She has an instinct for knowing what will ‘sing’.  Mark Jennett, Singer

Tamsin was script consultant/editor for Scott Stroman's jazz musical adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy 'As You Like It', in which she also played Phoebe. The production was premiered by Highbury Opera Theatre at the Union Chapel, Highbury in June 2014, with an international cast, a world-class jazz band – including Tim Wells on bass, Paul Clarvis on percussion, and Pete Hurt on sax/woodwind – and the massed forces of Eclectic Voices and Highbury Young Singers. Around 100 performers were involved in total.
