SOUND AND VISION
Hello! thanks for visiting my website! Here's the music I've released and the videos to accompany some of the tracks.
Nature's Grace is available here, now! only here though, until 5th September when it will be on general release.
I am thrilled that I've managed to secure plays for two of the tracks on national BBC stations. While this in no way diminishes the support I've had from lovely independent stations all over the world, it is a significant 'nod' that what I am creating is original enough and produced at the right level (which as you can imagine is a massive vote of confidence for this relative novice). At the time of writing, I've been doing this for just less than a year (July 2021), and I am so fired up and excited for the future.
Cerys Matthews was the first to notice me, playing Song Thrush Serenade on her BBC 6 Music show, around that time Nitin Sawhney played it on his WorldWide FM show and now I've had my BBC Radio 3 premiere thanks to Elizabeth Alker and her team on her Saturday breakfast show (17th July). Fills me for hope for the future. Thank you to everyone who's helped me get this far.
Here's the artwork for the next single Maids of the Mer here for you!
The video for this track will be premiered on Neil March's Trust The Doc TV show on Tuesday 20th July at 8pm. Here's a taster of what's in store!
Hot on the heels of my thrilling play of Song Thrush Serenade by Cerys Matthews on BBC 6 Music, I am delighted to announce that my next release on 28th May is 'How To Fly', featuring Ian McMillan.
I am particularly proud of this track.
Was delighted that it made the Fresh Faves selection on Tom Robinson (and team)'s Fresh on the Net website. Here's what reviewer Andy Page said (edited) "“The beauty of How To Fly is instant...the most remarkable thing is just how organic and natural the track is... Helen discovered her creative muse in the form of an iPhone App during lockdown, and a few months of perseverance has resulted in an extraordinary output of creative variety and uniqueness”
Hope you enjoy it too!
How to Fly is available to download immediately if you pre order the CD 'Nature's Grace' which is being released in the summer.
Here's the link to the EP Nature's Grace, on which you'll find How To Fly, will be sent immediately to everyone who pre orders the EP
I've decided to release a special edition album of the tracks from my three EP's plus two birdsong tracks - Song Thrush Serenade and The Gardener's Friend (18 tracks) in celebration of the Cerys Matthews and Nitin Sawhney plays for Song Thrush Serenade and to bring new followers up to speed with my work. Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far. Here's to an exciting future! Click here

"That was Song Thrush Serenade by @helefonix. I was sent this track through twitter & the lady who sent it started creating music in her 50's, fairly recently. I think it's amazing that she's got into making beautiful music" Nitin Sawhney, WorldWide FM
So excited to announce that Jackie Weaver (yes, THAT Jackie Weaver) Joe Rose and I have
collaborated on a fun pop single.

Thanks for visiting my site. 2021 brings a lot of new music, a name change from MidlifeMix to Helefonix and now a brand new exciting collaboration with Jackie Weaver - she of parish council zoom meeting fame!!
I've just released a contemporary classical mini modern symphony, which I entered for an award with Clouzine. Which you can find below.
And astonishingly, Orchestral Manoeuvres won Best Electronic/Classical EP.
Thanks to everyone who plays the tracks, writes about them, chatted to me on their radio show or supported on social media in any way. It's appreciated more than you can imagine.
