Hailing from Toronto, the prodigious 18-year-old singer-songwriter has created a repertoire of über–popular songs in a relatively short period of time with her signature brand of deeply reflective, yet undeniably relatable, alt-pop. Following a couple of independently released singles in 2019, the emerging artist signed with Interscope Records and released her debut EP teenage angst on March, 13 2020. Her music has been praised by the likes of Rolling Stone, TIME, V Magazine, Billboard, Paper, NME, American Songwriter, Interview Magazine, Guitar World and more.
