She has toured with Bombay Bicycle Club,[10][11] [12] and supported Black, Scouting for Girls, and Ani DiFranco, amongst others.[13][14] Q magazine compared Lawrence favourably to indie rock band Florence and the Machine, considering her "a starlet in the making".[15]


Having played in various bands in her youth before embarking on a solo career and relocating to London,[16][2][17] Lawrence's debut studio album, Bedroom Hero, was released in 2012, reaching No. 2 on the Bandcamp album chart.[15] In February 2017, Lawrence featured on the song "Party for Two" from the album The Pace of the Passing by former Bombay Bicycle Club member Ed Nash's solo project, Toothless.[18][19][20][21] 2018 saw the release of singles "The Good Part" and "Woman"; the former was mixed by Bombay Bicycle Club's Jack Steadman.[22] Her second album, Pity Party, was released on October 25, 2019. NME called the album "powerful" and considered that it "embraces her lo-fi folk past but also brings it into the here and now with satisfying pop elements"[23] Lawrence featured as a vocalist on Bombay Bicycle Club's 2020 album Everything Else Has Gone Wrong.[24] On September 17, 2021, Lawrence’s third album “The Avalanche” was released.
