Setting out her stall early, this year has already found Downey hitting new highs with the releases of step-up singles, Alright and Hard (winning both BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music support). Both tracks, alongside Home, released last winter, bore deep into her loves, losses and leave-behinds as the early years of her twenties provide a moment’s pause for reflection on how far she’s come and the obstacles she’s had to navigate along the way. For every moment of pain, a verse or chorus have been born.
Downey’ sound, both in the studio and on stage, is emboldened by the experience and creativity of her band, comprising Liverpool-based musicians, Nathaniel Laurence (guitars), Phil Murphy (drums) and Sam Topping (bass).
