the name C R O W N derives from her first and middle names. picked separately by her father and mother, it transpired that both her given names bear the meaning of the word ‘crown’. discovering this symbolized so much for her. a thinker by nature - very much from and of the head (the crown) - she unpacks what she sees around her. this is the driver for her expression as an artist and writer. music and its surrounding cultural practice has been her life - obsessed by how it captures people, emotion and history, and how it asks the questions often too hard to voice. music is catharsis to C R O W N, and an inherent practice passed down by the
generations who came before her.
raised in the northeastern Scottish city of Aberdeen, the first in her extended rural family to be reared in a city (albeit a small one), at 17 she left home and moved to Leeds in Northern England to study music and then onto London. she has since lived in Paris, Los Angeles and New York.
