"My musical influences are pretty eclectic as I love music from all genres.
Brooks & Dunn's 'Play Something Country' fires me up. I sing along to Boney M when I'm driving. I like to wind down to a mixture of jazz and rock, often Miles Davis or The Eagles.
A traditional Irish music session sets my heart beating, a Welsh male voice choir will make me melt, and the skirl of a poverty of Scottish bagpipers playing 'Highland Cathedral' is pure magic."
Originally trained as a classical soprano at Birkbeck Opera, University of London, with Mary Hill, Griselda also studies singing with Sheila McGrow in London, and Owen Gilhooley in Limerick.
