Updates

Esmerelda

I’m so excited to share the news that the wonderful artist Susan Steenhuis from the Netherlands is designing the front cover for my album.

I first came across Susan’s work in 2020 when The Art of Compassion Project held a fundraising Art Poster Auction. I saw, bid on and won this beautiful painting of a cow, who I named Esmerelda.

Susan and I have followed each other on social media ever since and I’m so delighted we’re working together on this project. We share similar beliefs and the same passion to bring in a compassionate world where animal exploitation is a thing of the past, and we both utilise our artistic gifts to share this vegan message.

You can see more of Susan’s work below and please support this amazing vegan goddess and animal rights artist: https://www.susansteenhuis.com/


Chasing waterfalls

I wanted to update you beautiful folk.

The album is sounding wonderful. I cannot wait to share the music with you in less than a months time. These pictures were taken during my video shoot for my song ‘Mother’ which will be released on the same day – 5th May 2022.

Please donate to the album crowdfunder if you can: www.veganqueenv.com/crowdfunding

Or sharing my music with your friends and family is just as amazing and I am grateful to all of you who are supporting me on this journey. You are incredible, thank you.


Day of Happiness

I have been on such a big learning journey, especially over the last 6 months. One of the things I have realised is that people are very unhappy because of the way society dictates we live our lives. It has become my passion to increase happiness, because happy people don’t hurt other people, and happy people don’t want to hurt animals. I started my ‘Day of Happiness’ in December 2021 and it is now a monthly run event bringing my local community together with one goal in mind – increasing happiness levels individually and collectively.

As part of my UK album tour, I will be bringing my Day of Happiness on tour with me too, a day of physical and mental wellbeing, information and powerful knowledge.

I can’t wait to create happy moments with you all 💚


The Base Retreat Animal Sanctuary

What a pleasure and privilege to be invited to the Base Retreat Animal Sanctuary to play my songs and talk about my upcoming animal rights album. I was joined by my beautiful friend Jessica Diamond who you will hear on the album.


Epicness on home soil

The last two years have definitely made travel abroad more difficult. But it has made me do more exploring of the landscapes and scenery the UK has on offer. And oh my she doesn’t disappoint!! I am doing a scout of nationwide vegan venues for my upcoming summer album tour, and my search, due to a wedding gig on Saturday brought me to the East Coast this weekend.


Rehearsing with Jessica Diamond

Jessica Diamond is an amazing violinist and an incredible voice for the animals, regularly informing her followers (many of which are not yet vegan) about the realities of their choices and the effect these have on animals and our planet.

Here we are rehearsing the songs for the album. Alongside playing on the album, Jessica will also be joining me on the UK tour!! So bloody grateful – what a bright light she is 💜


Feel the magic

What a beautiful world we live in. I am grateful for these moments.


Furry Friends

On my walk with Zala and Simba this morning we met some beautiful furry friends along the way 💚 animals are bloody amazing.


Colours

I went wild swimming in the river this morning.. it was extremely chilly but we were rewarded with this stunning sky. Teal and orange are the colours I am working with, and are being used for the album and the first single’s music video. I love the combination and they are stunning alongside the rural scenes of Scotland.


Album crowd funder launches on Vegan Queen V site!

As you know I am raising funds for my debut album, accompanying videos, and adjoining UK tour. I had set up the campaign on ‘Kickstarter.’ But knowing the company instantly take between 8-10% of your money didn’t sit right with me. Now the whole thing is set up on my site, and you can contribute and pick different reward options just like you could before, and this time there is even the possibility of doing a bank transfer, meaning zero fees (if UK based) – absolute boom!!
