How long have you been making music?

Forever! Music has been something I’ve surrounded myself with since the age of 12. However It’s only been the 2 years since I realised my 1st record and the since then I’ve spent my time focusing on showing different sides of my styles and writing. I’m forever creating narratives in my head from acute observations and experiences in life.

Why do you make music?

I make music to move people, to give people perspective. I love the idea of the listener escaping into the music and finding their own answers.

What are your biggest influences?

While I LOVE music, and love to always have it on, I tend to shy away from listening to much of one artist. I don’t want to accidentally be too influenced. I love the old folk guys, like Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell. The Lumineers are often found on my Spotify curated playlist, along with Maggie Rogers, Father John Misty, Damien Rice.

What would you say has been your best moment so far?

Listening to Eye of the Storm on the radio for the first time. Having it chosen as song of the week by the BBC was a huge page turner for me. Also, recently headlining a few gigs. Life just gets better.

How would you describe your sound to somebody unfamiliar with it?

Dreamy folk pop with a little rock thrown in for good measure.

What’s your dream “I’ve made it” moment?

Hearing my song being sang back to me. I imagine it every time I practice in my house and just think about how heavenly it would feel. To hear fans echoing back the emotion, passion, and the shared experience would be matched. Yeah, that’d be ace.

We love your new single ‘something never said’, what more can you tell us about it?

Thank you! This is the final song release on the theme of melancholic twee. With something never said you will find confession, regret, and longing for closer. It touches on the unfinished healing that happens with an ended relationship.

What else do you have planned for the near future?

So much music! And more gigs, and hopefully a tour. I’ve just recently taken a sabbatical from work to focus 100% on creating more.

And finally, who is your biggest fan right now?

It has to be the family! But the indie community I’m surrounded by is so supportive. I feel such love from all my fans.
