Having recently played support for prestigious New Zealand Artist-Collective ‘Fly My Pretties’, UK Legend ‘Nik Kershaw’ and Australia’s Mark Wilkinson, she also performs as a full-time artist around Canterbury and will be touring New Zealand with her band this coming May.

Along with stunning reviews, the album ‘The Day Is Young’ debuted at number 6 on the iTunes Singer-songwriter chart and was recently nominated for a 2014 Taite Music Prize.
