Throughout 2018, a creative development grant has enabled me to focus on developing my solo music. I have been working in my studio in Berlin and now have a beautiful body of work which is ready for live performance and recording. At the end of the summer, I made two live videos with my friends Erin Kleh and Rebecca Naylor, soon to be released.

Netze is based on the stories of refugee women finding their way into Europe through the south and east by land and sea.

too foreign for home
too foreign for here.
never enough for both.
