She brought out her debut album ‘The River Doesn’t Like Strangers’ in October 2021 on Shabaka Hutchings’ new label, Native Rebel Records, which has had radio play all over the world. She was part of Mercury-nominated album ‘Driftglass’ by Seed Ensemble– and currently tours internationally with Theon Cross, and Tom Skinner’s Voices of Bishara. Since touring with her own project, she has played at prestigious venues and festivals internationally including the Montreal Jazz Festival, Flagey Studios in Brussels, Paris Jazz Festival, and recorded a set of music for Winter Jazz Festival in New York.
