I taught myself basic chords on the piano when I was 16 and have been writing songs since then. I’ve sung throughout my life but since leaving school it’s become something that grounds me. The first song I both sang and played on the piano was Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’. Now, at 19, I have written a few originals based on certain points in my life. My musical inspirations and influences include, among others, Tom Odell, Lewis Capaldi, Bon Iver, Radiohead, Nirvana, Arctic Monkeys, Beatles, Alt J and Queens of the Stone Age. Settling on something completely original, my songs are written about love and, of course, heartbreak. Unique, I know. Although I have a lot of experience of performing, I have relatively little of playing piano and singing at the same time. Feel free to throw things at me if you don’t like it. I get it.
