Career[edit]

Culley met Darius Rucker, frontman of Grammy Award-Winning band Hootie and the Blowfish in a coffee shop in London in 2013. This led her to signing with Marro Records and relocating to Nashville to begin writing and recording music.[2] Fiona became a YouTube sensation when her cover video of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud" received over two million views overnight.[3] This led VH1 to name the video one of "5 Amazing Covers of Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud.'"[4]

Fiona Culley's single "Anywhere With You" was digitally released by Marro Records in March 2016.[5] “Anywhere With You” is co-written and produced with Chris Gelbuda, whose credits include “3am” with Meghan Trainor and “Like I’m Gonna Lose You”, featuring John Legend.[6]

Culley co-wrote and recorded a duet with Darius Rucker, "Life on the Line" that is the theme song to a Lionsgate film of the same name starring John Travolta, Sharon Stone, Kate Bosworth and more.[7] Culley also wrote two other songs for the movies soundtrack.
