OPTIMIST EP OUT NOW


I am so proud to announce that my 2nd EP 'Optimist' is OUT NOW! It is available to buy on iTunes, and stream on spotify, soundcloud, google play and all major music digital stores.

This year has been incredible for me, and the whole experience surrounding this EP has taught me so much and I could not be more proud of it. It was amazing to write and record again last summer, and I could not be more grateful to Jacket Records for putting so much hard work in to it.

If you buy/listen to the EP please let me know your thoughts and it would mean the world to me if you could share it around! thank you all so much and i really really hope you all like it! #hopemusic

One of the hardest shoots I’ve ever done!

Yesterday I had the pleasure of going to Bucks New University to record a couple of songs from my new EP, for a radio interview I have on Saturday with BBC Introducing at Three Counties Radio. We were working with a group of students in their third year of university.  I have never worked with such a large crew before and it was a really valuable experience for me. It was also a bit overwhelming to see so many cameras in one room!


It was really interesting to see the amount of work and care that goes into video making such as these, and all of the film and audio crew were really friendly. This was one of the hardest shoots I’ve ever done; we started filming the most physically and vocally demanding song from the EP (The Fall) first  – but I am extremely happy with final mixes, so I’m glad that our hard work has paid off. I have to keep reminding myself that my voice will keep growing and these shoots will become easier for me with age. Having said that, there is nothing I would rather be doing on a Wednesday than singing all day.

Thank you to all the crew involved in the shoot, and I hope your third year goes well! If you want to hear the result of this shoot I will be on BBC Introducing BHB on Saturday 5th December at 7pm, talking about Optimist EP and other musical stuff.

This video is from my gig last Saturday night at Trestle Arts Base, which was honestly one of the best gigs I have ever done so far - lovely friendly crowd, and this song by John Haitt went down really well :) also I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT IT IS 5 DAYS TILL MY NEXT EP COMES OUT! I am so incredibly excited and I cannot WAIT for you all to listen to it!

Also I'm in love with my new keyboard and I want to marry it. 

Thank you again for all your support - I have been working so hard, so new content will be coming soon :) x x x
