A student of art, she also studied graphics design and print making too and was influenced into music listening to folk rock and country music, especially by artists like Buddy Holly, Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent. She stared to model a bit, and at 14 was selected for the ad of Findus Fish Fingers, which made her known as the “Fish Fingers girls”. During her mid- teens she would sing at many pubs in Dublin, who later banned her for being an underage.

Regarding her personal life, not much is there to talk about it, as she doesn’t have a lot of boyfriends to talk about. Her first crush was at the age of 16, when she met a guy in Dublin who she hung around with during her struggling days. “He’d play guitar, I’d sing, we were perfect. But we all make stupid mistakes as kids, and he made me realize mine when he left me. It was his love and his pain that inspires me to write music, even today.” After that, no news came of her dating or any kind of affairs for that matter and it was in 2000, that she and fellow guitarist (and now her husband) Darrel Higham had started to date. In 2002, the two of them got married and after 13 years of married life are still together.
