Esther is a great musician with great accolades in Uganda. She is the Winner of the East African Music talent search show, Tusker Project Fame (2007) and a graduate of Telecommunication from Makerere University. She is indeed a great gift in the Uganda Music Industry. She is a singer, songwriter whose first music album "Rock In A Country Soul" with South African music label GALLO Records, leaves no doubt that she is the right expert for the kind of epic music we aimed for the "Silent Voices" production in 2012. Because of the great collection of the music in her "Rock in a country soul" album, most Uganda artists venturing into music in English are turning to her for help. Among others, she has done songwriting projects for big Uganda musician names like Juliana Kanyomozi with her music Alive Again and the renowned Richard Kaweesa in his I am Ugandan campaign music used to motivate Ugandans to exercise their voting rights during elections. Silent Voices was honored to have her on board in the spirit of giving back to Northern Uganda after the touching stories of the victims of the Northern Uganda war insurgency. IN 2012 she composed a great rendition of "What about us" the theme song of the theatre play "Silent Voices" written by Adong Judith. Currently she is one the panel of judges for Cola Cola Rated Next, a project that is looking out for Talented Musicians.
