My grandma’s dead – but, to any other grandmas, I’d describe my music as if James Taylor sang ballads.

Tell us about a few of your tracks; their titles and what they’re about?

‘One More I Love You’ is about the loss of my father and coping with an alcoholic mother. ‘Screaming Underwater’ is about what happened after, and about bullying.

I love that my hometown is small, you know everyone and everything about it. You’re 5 minutes away from the beach and 2 hours away from the snow.

Career highlight so far?

Being able to tell my story and being able to put myself out there for people to judge, which was something that was initially really hard for me.
