My sister Daisy took up the guitar when I was about 13. I took such an interest in her songs and what she was learning, that she bought me a guitar for christmas, and a blank book to write songs in: the best present I've ever been given. She taught me to play and sing songs by the Cranberries, Michelle Shocked, and Dire Straits, and I vividly remember hearing her play Midnight Special by the Cowboy Junkies for the first time. I began writing my own songs on the school roof in break times. As a classically trained cellist and pianist, it was never something anyone thought I'd take seriously, but after moving to Glasgow and performing one of my first songs at Jim's Bar I discovered a new kind of encouragement - which did not demand clever interpretations of Ravel or Bach, but only that I played what I wrote, which suddenly became as simple an objective to me as writing a diary.
