Vocalist, Musician, Writer, Teacher from a small but beautiful country called Scotland.
I've been writing, performing and recording for over ten years and enjoy listening and making all kinds of music. Once I hit my teens I devoured rap, rnb, hip hop, traditional scottish folk, metal, reggae and so much more. I'm currently enjoying new reggae artists and have just started listening to dancehall; I love the dancehall approach to sampling and the beats.
I'm looking to diversify, collaborate and create new music with open-minded and like-minded music -hit me up!

After delving into so much more music once I hit my teens I discovered more bands and artists who weren't as commercially popular. You can find them noted below.
Soulful raw pop with a twist of rnb sounds and a sprinkle of blues.
