The past few days have been amongst the best of my life. I can't thank everyone in Team Nessa enough for everything they've done to make this EP launch such a success.
Thanks to Mike Green and Oliver Pinder for mentoring me, for designing, producing and marketing my début EP and for arranging my mini-tour and ensuring that everything worked. Couldn't have begun to do it without you guys.
To my amazing lighting engineer, Elliot Baines of Spiralstagelighting. Elli - you made the shows. Without your expertise and talent they would have been nowhere near as good. You are so inspiring and I wish I was as driven at 13 of age as you are. Your future is bright and burning with opportunity.
Thanks to Michelle Greenwood, Catherine Rose Best and Fiona Broadfoot. You have been so supportive and encouraging and it's a pleasure to be surrounded by strong, inspirational women. Gillian Ndukuba - you always pushed me to follow what I loved doing and I guess I just ran away with that and never gave up. Thank you for your love, encouragement and support mum ❤
Thea Brooks - you killed it at the Manchester show. It was so lovely to share the stage with you - you made the show extra special ❤
Last but not least, a huge thanks to my wonderful band members Dejeanté Hinks, Connor Crossland, Ben Tubridy and James Johnston. It's been a pleasure to have you beautiful people on tour with me. Forestfires are unstoppable. And you guys are truly burning bright ❤
I'm now a published musician - something I've dreamt of for years. Here's to a good life and much more of it ahead.
