A poster girl icon for the 21st century, Ellie Rowsell is the lead singer in the London-based Grammy Award nominee indie rock band Wolf Alice. Like the tale by Angela Carter that inspired the bands name - a short story about a girl raised by wolves that develops the consciousness of a human being as she grows in her self-awareness - Wolf Alice’s debut album My Love Is Cool explores universal coming of age themes; alienation, adjusting to adolescence and ultimately trying to find comfort in your own skin while doing so.
Jeff Buckley is one of my favourite artists.
His music always makes me feel nostalgic, curious and emotional and his vocal range and ability as a singer really inspire me. Grace was one of my favourite albums as a teen.

A perfume I wore as a teenager transports me back to that time every time I smell it -
going out, having fun, being confused and worried about who I was and what I was doing.
