Her contemporary acoustic roots sound draws on elements of folk, country
and blues. Her influences include Carole King, Patsy Cline, Damien Rice,

After splitting in 2006 with her long term covers duo guitarist she searched for a replacement, only to be disappointed by those she auditioned.

of guitarist herself and quickly expanded her three chord repertoire and was gigging
