I am a singer-songwriter originally from Belfast, Ireland. My influences include Kate Bush, Joni Mitchell and Carole King. My parents are also traditional Irish singers and so I also take influence from them by singing traditional Irish songs, both accompanied and unaccompanied. I have released two EP's of my own songs, the first one solo in 2016, the second featuring my bandmates released in April 2021 despite Covid-19 lockdowns. My EP has had multiple radioplays including BBC Radio Ulster and BBC Radio Scotland, and was featured in the newspaper The Scotsman. I released a single 'Breathe' in 2020 which reached the semi-finals of the International Songwriting Competition.

I am a solo singer-songwriter, however I plan to find other musicians to accompany my songs. While living in Glasgow, Scotland I built up a band of cello, fiddle, trombone, backing vocals, bass and percussion. It is with these musicians that I recorded my most recent EP which was released earlier in 2021.
