It’s got to be Price Tag – Jessie J! This was the first ever song I sung live to an audience. It was the only song I would sing, in anything I did. This was definitely the starting point of my career!
What was the first single /download you bought?
Ego – The Saturdays.
What was the first album you owned?
The Saturdays – UP I remember going food shopping with my parents after primary school and spending my pocket money on this album. I would take it into school, and make my friends perform the full album with me haha.
What’s your constant go to track?
Like that – GRACEY. Everyone needs to check out GRACEY!!!
What’s your constant go to album?
Dua Lipa deluxe edition. Dua Lipa has always been an inspiration of mine, she’s an insane songwriter/performer and is always very passionate about her values. I just love how real she is to her audience if that makes sense!
Who’s your latest music discovery?
What’s your own track that best defines you as an artist?
I’m going to say Rainbow eyes because its very fun and colourful. It just sums my personality up, as I just want to have fun with my music, and make my fans feel excited, so they can have fun too whilst listening.
