contemporary, soulful and speaks to an exciting new voice of fresh urban
young artists coming out of Melbourne city.

has also lent her pen and vocals to the rapping form which complements her
repertoire as she continues to build and craft her sound. Once heard, her
voice is unmistakeable and easily identified across the Neology release that
demonstrates her skill for collaboration and soaring heart felt adlibs.
