Background[edit]

By age 11 she started to write her own songs about her struggles at school, these experiences inspired her to write a song called Sticks and Stones which she recorded and uploaded to Myspace. In 2006 she became a member of Youth Music Theatre UK joining the Missing Melanie company at London's Greenwood Theatre. At age 15, she got her first record deal with Mercury Records. She attended Northampton High School before moving to London at the age of 16.
