The cause I care most about is...destroying the patriarchy and promoting women in the music industry. My goal is to write pop music for artists that not only SLAP but combat misogyny and challenge the listener.

If I could go back in time and see one musical act it would be...Kate Bush. I also cannot possibly listen to Lovin' You by Minnie Ripperton without singing the high part.

A defining moment in my life was...playing the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury 2016.

When I'm not playing music I'm...playing hockey 

My pet peeve is...seeing (mainly guys) not wash their hands after going for a wee. 

"My album Through Water is about feeling like you’re both drowning and sailing as a young person, it’s about embracing the extremes."

I keep space from my creative persona by...taking time out with my friends and not mentioning music, supporting my friends and their ventures.

If I wasn't an artist I'd be...a Glaciologist. 

 

Water is a metaphor I relate to the most. Growing up by the sea side, having a father that worked in the water industry, and feeling a constant connection to rivers and bodies of water have all contributed to my fascination. My album Through Water is about feeling like you’re both drowning and sailing as a young person, it’s about embracing the extremes. 

The rock 'n roll stereotype is not sustainable. I think ultimately a happy healthy musician with a solid income and creative output is what should be promoted and supported. Even if the creativity takes a hit (which I don’t think it does/would). We shouldn’t profit from the continuous mistreatment of creative souls.

I have infinite memories of going to Liverpool Philharmonic since I was a kid. It has beautiful acoustics and design.
