Gartland first started releasing music by posting online covers on her YouTube channel. Here, she met collaborators dodie and Greta Isaac and steadily gained a loyal following. Since her debut single in 2015, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter has honed her craft and developed her lyricism with several EP releases.
The producer has had a successful summer so far with the release of her fifth single from the upcoming album 'You're Not Special Babe', and her euphoric set at Latitude festival. She has plans for a full album tour in the autumn months, but the album launch gig will be an intimate, acoustic affair. With limited capacity, entry to the event is expected to be in high demand.
