"Since I was 7 years old I wanted to be a singer songwriter. I remember playing Phil Collins and Michael Jackson on vinyl in my room for hours at a time! However, I wouldn't just sing along to the songs, I would imagine I had written the songs myself and was performing them to the crowd. For me, it was so important I was a singer/songwriter. It just made sense to me. This feeling has never left me and during my musical journey, I have been blessed with some amazing career highlights! From being awarded 'Best Unplugged Act in The West Midlands', opening up for Leona Lewis and McFly, to head lining some amazing venues, and performing live on BBC Children in Need.
I am so happy to be releasing new material in 2021 I can't wait to get back out there and perform these new songs to people!"
