I was very lucky to grow up in a house where I was always surrounded by music. My Dad is a guitarist and pianist and I guess it was pretty obvious from the beginning that my brother and I would play music too.
Following many years of flute recitals and orchestra concerts, it was fair to say that by my teens I had developed a love for performing that I couldn’t seem to shake. And, although I was very happy with where my music education had taken me, I wanted to be able to *say* something… which was pretty difficult when playing the flute.
So I picked up a guitar in 2007 and began teaching myself to play it and to write songs. The first song I learned was Dream Catch me by Newton Faulkner and, to this day, he remains one of my biggest inspirations.
Since first performing my songs live in 2012, I have played over 300 shows to date. I have also release two EP’s and a single ( Short Fuse and Too Soon ) in that time and this summer I performed at several festivals that I have had on my bucket list, including Wickham festival and Carfest North and South.
This year I have been working on an EP with Zach Johnson which is due for release this November 8th!
