I am a 20 year old singer, songwriter, producer, artist- all round creative, I create and write music influenced by my eclectic taste from Nirvana/Amy Winehouse/Norah Jones/Fleetwood Mac/Brent Faiyaz/Lauryn Hill/Joy Division/Disclosure/The Smiths/The 1975/Snoh Aallegra I could go on and on- I’d call my sound a Neo-soul/electronic/jazz/Indie RnB fusion.
