I Love Todd Sampson (creative develpoment)
Lanneke Jones’ love of performing began at an early age when she made her Sydney Opera House debut at the age of five. She performed with Opera Australia’s Children’s Chorus for some years, then became a solo performer and toured over four years as Flora in Benjamin Britten’s Turn of the Screw. As a teenager she made many trips to New Orleans and learnt how to sing and swing Jazz and Gospel music. Later she graduated with Honours in Music and Education from UNSW, formed an “a cappella” quartet Sorelle and her own band “Soul Kiss”. She is a professional singer and teacher in classical and contemporary music, freelancing with Corporate Bands and Sydney’s Jazz musicians. Lanneke joined the prestigious acappella ensemble The Song Company full-time in 2009 with which has seen her touring to China, New Zealand and around Australia regularly.
