Singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles, who produces some seriously stunning folk-pop influenced by a whole range of artists, including Kirk Franklin and The Beach Boys, to name a couple. Although she’s been making music for a few years now, her music career is really going to start to kick off in the New Year, with several releases planned including her single ‘Marina del Rey’ – available to pre-order now (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/marina-del-rey-single/id1063715895?ls=1). ‘Marina del Rey’ is a short, sweet and simple tune full of escalating harmonies and heartfelt truths, ultimately powered by beautiful piano and vocals, and promises truly great things for her future music. Any UK readers: this is exactly the kind of song you might expect to hear on the John Lewis Christmas adverts.
