Phoebe has been playing music since she was 7 – starting with classical piano and French Horn through school, and later picking up a guitar and singing her own compositions. After grade 8, Phoebe had found a way to combine her technical piano skills and more folky songwriting to create a unique sound. Phoebe is constantly seeking out music from different cultures and traditions, and after studying Music Culture: Theory and Production at university, she continues to train in contrasting styles and techniques, such as Latin piano, and Mongolian throat singing.
