THE STORY SO FAR...

A tastemaker and new music champion, she regularly contributes her warmth, knowledge and personality to BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, Apple Music's Beats 1, Soho Radio and Monocle 24.
BBC 6 Music has been her spiritual home for the past 10 years where she works as a broadcast journalist after being scouted on the red carpet at the NME Awards.

She's had the pleasure of time with many of her heroes Led Zeppelin, Mick Fleetwood, Sir Paul McCartney, Cat Power, James Murphy and even Ryan Gosling!
