Born and raised in a small town in Southern Italy, class of 1996, always had music and art in my heart & soul.
I've always loved singing since I was a little girl. I never really thought about taking it seriously at first.

My very first "serious" approach with music took its course when I started taking piano lessons at age 9; the following years, after I quit piano, I started studying flute. 3 years at my Middle School and 2 years at the Conservatory.

I started taking singing seriously at 15, when I joined my first band. In that period, I wrote one of my first songs, “Lies”, a sweet ballad about an impossible love.

I started taking guitar lessons at age 16, along with resuming my piano lessons with a focus on musical composition. As things didn’t work out with my second band I decided to take a different approach, which lead me to a Singing Contest in 2013, where I won first place and was signed by an Indipendent italian Label, but due to Irreconcilable discordances I left the label the next year. 

As usual, my dreams were too big for my small Hometown, and in April 2017 I waved goodbye to my family and, in order to follow my dream, made the big decision to move to a new city on my own: London.


In London I joined the "Artist Development" course at Access To Music College, while working as a waitress.

In the meantime, I would fly back and forth to Italy to see my family and my best friend: my dad.

He had always been my biggest fan and supporter, where others thought I couldn't make it, he would be there pushing me to do it.

In Italy I would work on some of my songs, getting them arranged by a friend of mine. 

January 2017 had me with my very first professional photoshoot with the photographer Marcus Maschwitz (known for working with artists such as Fall Out Boy, Bring Me The Horizon etc)

On that same month, my dad fell searously sick and ended up in hospital, so I flew back to Italy.

On 20th of February 2017, I lost my Best Friend.

Despite everything, after a couple of weeks I decided to go back to London to do what my dad wanted me to: go back to school and keep making music, and I was more motivated than ever.


I'm currently working on my first Music Video and my first EP.
