Influences: Bts, Boa, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Girls' Generation.
I am a singer, songwriter & pianist. I have studio recording experience, and am also able to record and mix demos at home.
I'm currently in the studio recording a self-composed 11-track album in English. Alongside my solo projects I'm collaborating with multi-platinum selling songwriter and producer Darren Martyn (writing credits include Tinie Tempah, SHINee, Crystal Kay and Little Mix), writing songs for the Japanese and Korean music industries.
I have performed solo, as a duet and in groups/larger ensembles (both as a vocalist and a musician; I have played violin and cello in orchestras). I performed as a solo vocalist and dancer (with 4 backing dancers) in clubs situated in southern China (April - May 2013), and now do gigs predominantly in the south of England as a solo vocalist.
In July 2015 I became the vocal winner of the UK regional final of the K-Pop World Festival. Out of tens of thousands of applicants worldwide, I was chosen as one of 14 grand finalists to be flown out to Changwon to perform to an audience of 25,000 in the televised grand final (also broadcast live online to 170,000+ people). I represented the UK as a solo artist and won ususang (2nd place in vocal), with 3,000,000 SKW prize money.
In January 2016 my hometown of Basingstoke held its first ever music awards - I performed at the event and won "Best International Artist" for my activities at home and in Korea.
I perform in English, Japanese and Korean, and have written songs in all of these languages.
