She was originally from Cardiff, and happened
to be in London when Shut up & Dance were holding singing
auditions at the studio. She sang a cover of the tune "summertime"
by Billie Holiday over a break beat instrumental and that was
it, a deal was made there and then.
She went on to have such hit tunes as
Single Minded People,
Waking up/dove song
O-Se Ne Ne,
and also an album called Now is Early.
