Album Description

At times, living in different cities has tested my ability to find a sense of belonging in any one place. I was born in London and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa. I moved to New York City to attend the Manhattan School of Music for graduate studies. After five years in the Big Apple, I then moved back to London and Cape Town before setting my sights on Toronto, Canada in 2020. I was armed with experience and the desire to forge meaningful musical relationships with like-minded musicians. This music is the result of that wish. I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to gain new perspectives and experiences that I may not have had if I had stayed in one place. The album was named "Nowhere Girl" because of this journey, as it both sets me apart as an individual and unites me with so many others who relate to the same feeling.
