Bio

I like telling little stories. A healthy dose of Paul Kelly has only ever done anyone good. I want to take the long bus trips, and the taxi rides of my little world and show people why I think those funny little moments are the most important parts of our big and bold lives.
My rockstar uncle taught me Space Oddity when I was 12 and it taught me that oddness is great and that maybe, a space obsessed explorer has something important to share.
I live in New York, I grew up in Sydney and I study Maths and Physics and I have lots of things that I've seen that I'd like to tell. I've been working with Benjamin McCarthy (Gordi, nyck, Kate Miller-Heidke) through some bits of old tape and we've got a few songs we'd like to share with you.

Every time this comes on the radio I have to stop and listen. It's such a clever pop song which navigates smart lyrics through beautiful layers of instrumentation. Top it off with a hint of nostalgia and you've got a total winner.

There's just something about this track that's just so alluring. Can't wait to see what else comes out of this quirky gal!
