Indie // Ballygawley, Tyrone // she/her

Growing up in the Northern Irish countryside, I started playing classical piano aged 6 and took classical singing lessons throughout my teens. Learning to harmonise to Taylor Swift’s Fearless album and being introduced to Paramore by friends at school, the music in my iPod was always a stark contrast to what
I played and sang. After a few years travelling in Canada, I moved back to the UK in 2018 and have been studying Music at University of Southampton since September 2019.
During this time, I have spent time discovering my own sound and artistry, which is often a fusion of indie pop and jazz inspired chords grounded by my first love, the piano, with some classical influence still in my vocals. My obsession with singer-songwriters such as Foy Vance, Joy Crookes and Maggie Rogers has also influenced my music more recently. My lyrics draw inspiration from the world around and within me – from other people’s stories to what sometimes feels like a constant narration of the world in my mind. This year I am looking forward to releasing my debut single, Camomile, and collaborating with other artists, writers and producers.
