Carrie Hayden was born in Worcestershire in 1985 and it didn't take her long to realise that when she spoke she sounded like she'd been tanning Marlboro Reds since she exited the womb. After trying to sing along to the likes of Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey and failing miserably she came to the decision that she was going to have to find another way to entertain the neighbours. At fourteen she started writing three chord songs on an out of tune piano. Inspired by artists such as Tracy Chapman, Sheryl Crow and the Beatles her hobby grew into an ambition. After a two year performing arts diploma and a gap year singing vocals on dodgy trance tracks she managed to blag her way into Paul McCartneys fame school-LIPA. Here she met a handful of like-minded individuals in the form of Andy Neve, Jostein Austvik, Andrew Grevey and Yuka Hamomoto and began to make sweet music. With influences from many different genres including Rock, Indie, Acoustic and Folk and the help of a husky voice Carrie has developed a unique sound complimented by heartfelt, honest lyrics.
