Now she’s touring the UK performing her debut album RED; a collection of 14 acoustic-driven electro pop songs, from the catchy single Taboo, to the more sentimental ballad Is it Wrong? But far from just a pop queen, she's bob-on with a guitar. She even created the independent record label TeaPot Records to help up-and-comers to make their own kind of music. Support on the night will be from Notts-based talent acoustic Italian duo Ventiduo and angelic-voiced local lass Chloe Rodgers. Get dahn duck.
