Whilst Relentless is a song to get you in the mood to strike forth and get your dreams realised, Back to Soul is an honest metaphorical song that encourages the heart to kindle its inner beauty and power.

Having played Relentless on BBC Midlands Introducing, Dean Jackson then gave it a personal recommendation for the corporation's 1Xtra saying "they're gonna like this one!"

Currently writing new songs and collaborating with producers in both her hometown of Leicester and London, Gloria is also proud to provide lead vocals for SoulNaturals, and as a backing vocalist work for Judy Duff and her NU Soul generation band www.nusoulgeneration.co.uk/.

Devoted to her Christian faith, Gloria's desire is to sing - providing the audience not only something unique, but proving that music can be both a uniting and deeply personal experience.

Having been a regional finalist for the BBC's Idol 2008 competition, Gloria forged a close relationship with BBC Radio Leicester and for the past eight years Gloria has performed live at their annual Christmas carol service whilst also recording exclusive content to be aired on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

As well as this Gloria has been involved with charity work in conjunction with BBC Applause Leicester. This culminated with a special performance at Leicester's newest theatre The Curve. APPLAUSE is a Community Interest group with the twin aims of promoting talented local performers and raising money for local charities (Rainbow and Loros).

"I have worked with Gloria on many occasions where she has either performed solo or with her musical colleagues and she really is an absolute delight to work with as well as being a supremely talented singer.' Dave Andrews BBC Leicester Radio Presenter and producer

Everyone has been there and Gloria's stunning vocal treatise will allow you to reflect or help heal fresher wounds...

As a person she is a pleasure to work with being professional, straightforward, hardworking and always as a smile on her face. I would recommend her for any professional music or creative projects that come her way.' Tony Cannam Singer songwriter/ Owner of British Soul Standard.
