Born and raised in Walsall, the 20-year-old RnB singer’s soulful voice combined with poetic lyrics have propelled her from success to success over the last two years.
She won BRIT’s Critics’ Choice Award at the beginning of the year and her fans include some of the biggest names in the industry. Most notably, Canadian rapper Drake, who named her single ‘Where Did I Go?’ one of his favourite tracks before inviting her to support him on his London and Birmingham tour dates.
She’s also collaborated with the likes of Chance the Rapper, Tom Misch and Wretch 32.
Her October tour follows the release of her first, full album ‘Lost & Found’ in June this year. The 12-single album features four previously released hits including ‘On My Mind’ and ‘Blue Lights’.
