When did you decide that a career in musicwas for you?

I still haven’t, my first independent single is doing extremely well which I am excited about but I’m still new to the industry and have lots to learn. 

 

Who are your musical inspirations and why?

CMAT, Kylie Minogue and RAYE. I just feel all of these artists really speak to people and are not just about making good music. You can feel the connection between you and their music like it’s personal. 

 

Can you tell me 3 things about yourself that people might not already know?

  • I am also an actor and have worked on a few tv shows. 

  • I love Oreo ice cream

  • I was born in Wales 

 

What has been the best gig you have done to date and why?

I haven’t done any yet! 

 

If you could perform a gig at any venue where would it be and why?

O2 Arena London, it’s the biggest and one of the most iconic venues in the world. 

 

What has been your best achievement to date and what would you like to achieve in the future?

1 million cross platform streams on my debut independent single and I want people to just keep loving my music because I love making it! 

 

Tell me a story from backstage or after a gig?

Haven’t done a gig yet! 

 

What do you like best about being a musician and why?

I love being able to tell a story and speak to people who may need a bit of a lift in life. 

 

If you were not in the job you are now what would you be doing?

Probably still pissing about with music but I do love acting so possibly that! 

 

What has been the best gig you have been too as a fan and can you tell us about it?

Believe it or not I haven’t been to a gig either (I know I’ve lived a really sheltered life)! 

 

What would your ideal festival line up be and why?

ME, CMAT, KYLIE & ADELE I think backstage would be a good laugh and we would definitely put on a good show. 

 

What would you say is the best piece of advice you have ever been given?

Don’t give up. 

 

What things make you happy and what things annoy you?

Good food makes me happy and bad drivers annoy me. 

 

What things do you like to do when you are away from music?

Watch TV and see family 

 

Do you think social media and the internet are a good thing in the music industry?

I am sort of in the middle with this question because it’s good for certain things like ease of getting your music out there but you definitely have to put more effort into promotion because there is so much competition. 

 

How important do you think your look and image is when it comes to being in the music industry?

I think you definitely have to stand out from the crowd to get noticed and sometimes do things that are pretty iconic and memorable. 

 

Can you tell us about any tattoos you have and the significance of them to you?

I don’t have any 

 

 

If you could say one thing to your fans what would it be and why?

Thank you so so much! I appreciate every single one of you and without you none of my music would exist. Every single one of you is incredible. 

 

What would say to someone thinking about becoming a musician and getting into the music industry?

Definitely give it a go because it’s so fun and exciting. Listening to people talk about your music is just so special. 

 

If you could collaborate with any other band/singer or musician who would you choose and why?

CMAT - I have covered one of her songs and placed her vocals back into the mix and it sounded magical. I feel our voices would sound amazing together. 

 

 

If you could have written one song from history which would it have been and why?

Love Story - Taylor Swift it’s such a beautiful song and it made a lot of money! 

 

What has the rest of the year got in store for you?

My debut album is being released in June which I am really excited about! It’s called ‘We Are Meant To Break The Rules’ and it an album about my life and things that have happened to me.
