Dance Collaborators came flooding in and she recorded "Dance Your Pain Away" with Amy McBride and The Upbeats as well as the unreleased album "Existence" with Bruce Jamieson.
Before moving away from New Zealand in 2009 she recorded and released the studio album "Pearl of Blood" which is a collection of folk noir ballads with a melancholic feel.
