Prolifically creative from a young age, she began writing poems & songs aged 6. She originally began learning guitar from friends around campfires; and later at sessions and the like. She began to write more solidly, and to develop her vocal and playing style; whilst living in the mountains of Snowdonia, North Wales. She went on to perform locally, around the festival scene, and around the UK with various bands. Before moving back to London to study electronic music production; and to record her second full album.

She has organised, and been a part of teams organising, a number of sell out music nights and events, and for a time taught and organised creative and musical workshops everywhere from festivals, to a slate mine, to a major Welsh national theatre. As a singer, she has collaborated with a number of dance music producers, gaining Radio 1 play for one project.
