After reading English at Manchester University, Tamsin began her career with BBC Radio Drama. She then worked as a radio producer in the Independent sector, before going freelance. She has extensive radio production experience – specialising in plays, readings and arts features.  She is in great demand as a producer and director of audio books for major publishing houses, working with some of the finest writers and actors in the country.

Tamsin started her singing career as the ‘tall’ half of cabaret duo ‘The Song and the Short and the Tall’, but soon crossed over into jazz, playing at key London jazz venues with some of the best musicians in the country.  She has recorded her own album 'Under Your Spell' and also writes lyrics for fellow jazz singers, including Gabrielle Ducomble, Mark Jennett and Gill Cook.

She is a successful lyricist/librettist, with works commissioned by English National Opera, The Royal Opera House, Tete a Tete Contemporary Opera Festival, virtuoso choral group The Shout and Highbury Opera Theatre.  Composers she has written with include Orlando Gough, John Webb, Evangelia Rigaki, David Knotts, Cheryl Frances Hoad, Pete Latenka, Kerry Andrew, Sxip Shirey, Bill Ryder-Jones, Scott Stroman and Bishi.  She has written two original songs with composer Becca Dale for Decca: 'Winter' for Voces 8 and 'All Is Still' for Canterbury Cathedral Girls' Choir.  For further details of individual projects go to Writer page.
