BORN IN NORFOLK, I MOVED TO SHROPSHIRE WHEN I WAS TWO.

 

DESPITE LIVING IN THE LANES OF A SMALL FARM VILLAGE IN SHROPSHIRE, WELL KNOWN FOR ITS STUNNING HILLS AND WARM VILLAGE COMMUNITY, I CAN USUALLY BE FOUND IN MY ROOM, SITTING ON MY DODGY GARDEN CHAIR, WITH MY CARDBOARD BOX LAPTOP STAND, WORKING ON MY LATEST MUSIC PROJECT. 

 

DON’T GET ME WRONG, THE HILLS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND COWS ARE GREAT AND ALL, BUT THE FARM LIFE JUST ISN’T FOR ME.

 

I’VE FOUND SOMETHING I LOVE EVEN MORE THAN COWS: MUSIC.

GROWING UP

THROUGHOUT MY CHILDHOOD, I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INFLUENCED BY MUSIC, WHETHER THAT BE THROUGH MUSIC LESSONS, MY FAMILY’S MUSICAL HISTORY OR PURELY JUST MY ADMIRATION FOR THE ARTISTS I LOVED.

 

MY MOTHER CAN PLAY A RANGE OF INSTRUMENTS, ALONG WITH MY UNCLE AND GRANDMOTHER ALSO HAVING A STRONG MUSICAL INFLUENCE.

INFLUENCES

ARTISTS SUCH AS LANA DEL REY REALLY INFLUENCED ME AS A CHILD- MY MUM WOULD BLAST HER ‘BORN TO DIE’ ALBUM (ESPECIALLY THE TRACK ‘NATIONAL ANTHEM’) IN THE CAR AND I JUST REMEMBER THINKING HOW COOL THE ALBUM WAS, HOW POWERFUL IT WAS. 

 

IT’S AS IF FOR A SECOND EVERYTHING MADE SENSE WHEN THAT SONG PLAYED; IT ALWAYS GAVE ME GOOSEBUMPS AND MADE ME FEEL SO EMPOWERED EVEN AS A KID.

 

HONESTLY, THIS IS WHAT MOTIVATED ME FROM A YOUNG AGE TO PURSUE MUSIC- TO PORTRAY THAT SAME EMPOWERMENT IN MY OWN CREATIONS. 

MY WRITING

I’VE LEARNED THAT I TEND TO ACT ON MY IMPULSIVE DECISIONS.

 

SOME WOULD SAY THIS IS A BAD TRAIT BUT I SAY IT’S FUN. I HAVE FOUND MYSELF IN MANY A STRANGE SITUATION JUST BECAUSE I SAY “F*CK IT!”.

 

I AM FORTHCOMING IN LOVE, AND THIS MEANS THAT SOMETIMES I DON’T PROTECT MYSELF.  I THINK A LOT OF PEOPLE DO THIS.

I USUALLY WRITE ABOUT COMPLEX PERSONALITIES, COMPLEX SITUATIONS AND MY DIFFERENT EXPERIENCES OF LOVE GROWING UP, DRIVEN BY THE PEOPLE THAT INSPIRE ME AND THE EMOTIONS I EXPERIENCE.

 

MUSIC HAS BEEN A WAY TO UNDERSTAND MYSELF, AND LIFE, AND CHANNEL THESE THOUGHTS INTO SOMETHING I CAN SHARE WITH PEOPLE WHO ARE ALSO LOST. 

 

I ALSO THINK HAVING DIVORCED PARENTS INFLUENCED ME TO WRITE ABOUT HARDSHIPS, ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS GAVE ME A WIDER PERSPECTIVE OF THE WORLD AT A YOUNG AGE.
I DO THINGS BECAUSE I HAVE AN URGE TO DO, TO LEARN AND TO TRY, AND LEARN ABOUT PEOPLE.

 

THIS INFLUENCES MY WRITING A LOT.

I AM NOW 17- I HAVE FOUND A MOTIVE WITHIN MY MUSIC: TO CHANNEL MY THOUGHTS, UNDERSTAND MYSELF AND TO RELATE AND EMPOWER PEOPLE.

 

I DEVOTE MYSELF TO MY MUSIC, AND I DON’T PLAN ON STOPPING ANY TIME SOON. I HOPE YOU’LL BE A PART OF THIS JOURNEY OF MINE.
