ABOUT THE GIRLS
Hey I’m Millie O’Connell, I’m 23 and loving life! I’ve always said my biggest inspiration in life is MUSIC – it allows you to colour your mind and create a soundtrack to your life, exploring genres and understanding how music emotes you, it is my passion! I grew up on the Isle Of Wight – always in a studio, always dancing, singing and always creating! I left the island when I was 16 as I knew I had to peruse my dreams and goals, move to the mainland and just go for it! I graduated at 19 and I have been working in the musical theatre industry ever since.
My SVN girls are my sisters! Truly! We came together back in 2018 and we have just grown together. Creating and forming a true bond, I trust them with my life – completely! We got brought together for a reason, we are meant to be here making great music together and so I am so, so excited for the future.
I grew up in Stevenage and my love of music came from my Dad, who was in a rock band so I love a in musicals when I won the BBC Voice of Musical Theatre competition at 19. I’ve got three dogs called Roxie, Magic and Wolfie who are my children. I’m currently in Pretty Woman starring as Vivian Ward and I have had the great fortune of playing many leading roles including the West End run of Lin Manuel-Miranda’s In The Heights. I met my SVN girls on Six The Musical where we dreamed about being a girl band and travelling the world together – and we are all going to work our absolute hardest to make this dream a reality!
Hey I’m Natalie Paris, I’m 26 and live with my amazing family and 2 dogs in a little cottage in Essex. My family mean the absolute world to me – I am such a home girl and from as young as I can remember I have always wanted to sing, ever since I stood up and sang ‘old McDonald had a farm’ at my god-mothers wedding age 2. I am so lucky that my parents introduced me to so many different artists and styles of music that have had a huge influence on me over the years and I was so grateful to have had the opportunity to work in the West End musicals as a child.
After graduating from RADA, I spent many years gigging in various venues across the UK & recording sessions with some incredible people. I was lucky enough to continue my West End career joining the original cast of Six The Musical, where I featured on the cast recording & got nominated for an Olivier alongside my fellow Queens. This is where I met my beautiful girls from SVN who have become my sisters, and I am forever grateful for the time I have performed and spent with them. To be a part of a girl band is an absolute dream come true and I am so excited for our future together.
Hello! My name is Grace Mouat and I am from Surrey! I have sung since the age of 6 in local talent shows and my biggest music inspirations growing up were Lea Salonga, Diana Ross and the Supremes, Steps and The Spice Girls!
I graduated with my day 1 sis, Maiya, from the Guildford School of Acting in 2018 and we went straight into Six where I covered all parts in the show for our original West End run. I left the show in August 2019 to cover the title role in brand new musical, & Juliet featuring the music of pop icon Max Martin – this show has really grown my love for pop music and the music industry!
Over lockdown I signed with Gleam Futures management who have been an incredible support in my new journey of content creation through my podcast and YouTube channel. I have always been so inspired by many activists and authors on social media who fight for chance, promoting positivity and kindness. Starting this new adventure with the SVN girls is a dream come true, I am so excited to continue to explore and create our look and sound!
I am Maiya Quansah-Breed and I am from Manchester! I started singing around the age of 4, and my grandma was my biggest hype – mum didn’t believe her so took me for singing lessons when I got to aged 9, and then she realised I could hold a tune! My music inspirations are Beyoncé, Erykah Badu and Lianne La Havas to name a few, however my biggest inspiration in life is my Mum, and all the wonderful women I am lucky enough to have in my life. After graduating from The Guildford School of Acting in 2018 I made my professional debut in Six The Musical and most recently played the role of Mimi in RENT at the Hope Mill Theatre in Manchester.
Now embarking on my next adventure with my SVN sisters this means the world to us to be able to get back together officially as a band to spread some girl power whenever and wherever we can through music. Six the musical into SVN has been the biggest blessing of the past 3 years, and to get to do this with friends that have become my family is even more special.
Hey, I am Jarnéia Richard – Noel also known as Jaye’J and I am a midlands girl, from Northampton. I grew up singing as soon as I could talk and my main influences have been the queen herself Beyoncé, Mary J Blige, Ms Dynamite, Etta James and many more! From very little I knew this was my dream and that’s exactly what I wanted to do. My mum and my Nan have been my biggest support system and to this day they continue to support my dream of being a singer!
Since playing Catherine of Aragon in Six The Musical my life has changed – from being nominated for an Oliver Award, The Stage Debut Award and performing on BGT, I honestly couldn’t of ever dreamed of this so early on into my career. Meeting these wonderful women we have gone from SIX to now our new adventure SVN and I’m honestly so excited to make more memories and magic with them all. Our energy and vibes are like no other and I’m so excited for our future!
Hey hey I’m Alexia, a high energy, bubbly babe who represents Birmingham. My love for singing started from the age of 3, where my parents soon knew my confidence and talent had to be nurtured. Throughout childhood I performed in my church choir along with local youth theatre groups. I’ve always loved music especially writing and collaborating with various artists over the years.
I really enjoy different genres of music, but my personal music style is heavily inspired by TLC and the 90s era. My drive and perseverance whilst juggling motherhood has definitely helped as I landed roles across the UK, including major pantos and West End musicals.
I continue to pursue my career as a singer and I have a beautiful 11 year old boy who is my main drive and inspiration. SVN are my sisters and our bond was formed when we met on the West End hit show Six. We have achieved so much together as a group including an Olivier nomination, and incredible guest performances on BGT, This Morning and The One show. I’m very excited about pursuing a career as a recording artist and I am so looking forward to embarking on this new journey with my girls!
