What informs your music and songwriting?
My life experiences inform and guide what my music will be about. Things I’ve been through, places I’ve been and people I’ve met along the way! It also depends what kind of mood I’m in on the day. If I’ve been listening to vintage Christina Aguilera all week, no doubt I’ll come out with some fabulous sass.

How have you evolved as an artist over the years?

I’m constantly evolving as an artist and I think it’s obvious in my music as well as who I am today. My songwriting has been able to evolve through the numerous sessions I’ve done over the years. Working with other people and new people has allowed me to learn new techniques, look at things from new angles and encouraged me to push myself and my ability. As a performer and a singer I think the most important thing that has evolved is my confidence. Again through trial and error and experience, I’m learning what works for me and what doesn’t.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?

I’m about to release a new single! So I’ve spent the last couple of months getting all of the artwork, music and ideas together. I’m also gigging in and around London which is always fun.

What’s on your rider?
Jack Daniels! And hummus with dippy veg. It’s all about the balance, ya know.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.
I was working as a barista and was elbow deep in washing-up liquid and bubbles when a young American girl came over and asked me over the counter if I was Rothwell! I was both mortified and completely blown away. The fact that someone from America knew who I was was amazing, albeit with bright yellow marigold gloves on at a sink filled with dirty mugs.

What song do you wish you’d written?

There’s an up and coming artist called Lewis Capaldi who wrote a song called Lost on You. It’s SO beautiful.

What’s your worst lyric?

Haha, god knows. It was probably from one of the first songs I wrote. Maybe along the lines of “I love the sun, maybe to stars and dreams come true with unicorns.”
