I'm an independent singer/songwriter and producer based in Edinburgh, Scotland. My writings manoeuvre their way through an eclectic background of pop, folk, Americana and singer/songwriters landing somewhere between Tom Odell, Harry Styles, David Gray and Brandi Carlile.
Finding my feet in the quiet listening rooms of Edinburgh, I won the inaugural BBC Scotland “Singer/Songwriter of the Year” in 2019 and went on to play some of Scotland's most iconic venues including headline shows at King Tut’s, Sneaky Pete’s and Rosslyn Chapel as well as opening for “Horse” at The Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh. I spent the last 18 months exploring the world of co-writing, practicing his craft alongside writers from around the world before returning to live music in July supporting "Horse" at Albert Halls, Stirling followed by two sold out solo shows at Eden Court: Under Canvas, Inverness.
I've been featured by Jo Whiley on her BBC Radio 2 show and received huge support from Grant Stott and Roddy Hart on BBC Radio Scotland. Named as one of The Sun's "10 for 2021" by Jim Gellatly, I've also just played my festival debut opening the King Tut's Stage at this years TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow.

LATEST RELEASE - "HOLD ME IN YOUR ARMS"
"Hold Me In Your Arms" is out now!
I grew up listening to my parent’s record collection (Queen, Billy Joel, Cat Stevens, Simon & Garfunkel) and I wanted to explore how those influences could sit alongside modern production, showcasing where I’m heading as a recording artist while staying true to my “story song” roots.
I've always enjoy playing with space and tension when producing songs but also love a good "hands in the air sing-a-long" moment... that's how this track was born. It's a celebration of falling in love.
The single is taken from my forthcoming EP "For The Record" which you can digitally pre-order now or you can order a Limited Edition signed copy of the EP exclusively at Bandcamp.com | BUY NOW
"Saving Grace" is my first studio release of 2021 and was written while my husband and I were separated due to covid travel restrictions for more than 8 months. It explores the hopeful loneliness we have all experienced through this challenging time; spending so much time apart from our families and loved ones.
The recording was done mainly in my home studio in Edinburgh with additional instrumentation added remotely. The strings were arranged and recorded by Elspeth Mackay in Glasgow and the track was mixed by Liam Narrie in his London studio.
The single received multiple national radio plays including BBC Radio 2 with Jo Whiley, BBC Radio Scotland with Grant Stott, Janice Forsyth and Roddy Hart as well as being featured on Amazing Radio with Jim Gellatly.
