Gina is absolutely delighted to join this exciting world-premiere production of Trio. It’s particularly thrilling because she has been working for the past couple of years on her debut solo self-penned album with the incredible Ben Goddard, who has written the music for Trio, and the chance to work with him again is always a delight. She cannot wait to finish recording the album and share it, so look out for it!
