I was always fearful to start writing music, in case my ideas sounded soppy and ridiculous. Last year I began writing lyrics whilst I was travelling in Australia and slowly became more confident in adding melody. I am studying Landscape Architecture but am usually playing guitar and writing ideas for songs between deadlines! Currently my aim is to develop more of an online platform as well as get used to performing my own material.

Growing up with music, I learnt violin and piano to a high level and then began teaching myself guitar. People ask me whether I ever received singing lessons, but I learnt from singing Beatles songs with the piano! I felt very inspired to start song writing from seeing solo female artists such as Julien baker and Lucy Rose in concert. I also look up to folk artists such as Laura Marling and Mumford and Sons.
