After studying voice at Southern Cross University, Wareing moved to Melbourne in 1997. Her first band as songwriter was power-pop trio Lazy 8, started in 1999 with ex-Frente bassplayer Tim O’Connor and drummer/guitarist Darren Foster.
In 2002, she co-founded post-dream-rock band The Mime Set with guitarist Andrew Watson. They played regularly, releasing 2005s 'Sleeping Is The Hardest Part', and 2008s 'I’ve Only Ever Lived in Rivertowns', plus a handful of EPs.
In 2005, The Mime Set joined with Melbourne spoken word artist Sean M. Whelan to create radical ‘soundtracked spoken word’ show ‘Death To Your Dreams’, plus two further shows, 2006s ‘LCUK: Falling In and Out of Love’ and, with spoken word artist Emilie Zoey Baker, 2007s ‘Sweet Cowboy’. Sean M. Whelan and The Mime Set were invited to reform for a one-off show and live recording in 2014. <br><br>In 2009, Wareing relocated to Berlin. Developing an intense and bittersweet solo sound mixing alt.country, indie rock and slowcore, her 2012 debut solo album was released by label A Headful of Bees. Wareing’s second Wasp Summer album ‘Mitropa’ is due in 2018.
