This was followed up in December 2015 with the single ‘Sit With Me’, which caught the attention of key media including BBC Introducing who awarded it Track Of The Week twice and Radio 2 where it received plays from both Dermot O’Leary and Bob Harris.

Recorded with several highly qualified and exciting producers, including Grammy Award winner Jimmy Hogarth and Brit School alumni Jackson, the first single ‘Love You Better’ was self-released via AWAL on February 3rd. Added straight Spotify’s key New Music Friday US playlist ‘Love You Better’ has achieved well north of 1m plays is garnering the attention of the public and record industry alike.
