I've played the BBC Introducing stage at READING and LEEDS FESTIVALS 2012, some of biggest in the UK. Last year I opened HENLEY FESTIVAL for STING and previously for JOOLS HOLLAND. I am an 19 year old singer/songwriter described as having 'a powerful, unique and captivating voice, and a passionate connection with my original music'. At 16 made the finals of OPENMIC UK at O2 ARENA. I am unsigned as yet. I've been played on national stations (Radio 6/Radio 2/Radio 1 by TOM ROBINSON/JO WHILEY/SKREAM & BENGA) and local BBC radio (Berkshire/Oxfordshire). In addition, I was selected to attend BBC Introducing Masterclass by Linda Serck, BBC, where I took my opportunity of 1 minute of fame and sang live-streamed in front of industry professionals, including Maverick Sabre and Rob da Bank at Abbey Road Studios. My spontaneous performance led to being aired on Jo Whiley’s Radio 2. I wrote and made a video of 'CLOSE YOUR EYES' at 15. Most recently I supported Lucy Spraggan.
