A Godmanchester singer who played her first gig at her local pub just over a year ago is fast becoming a rising star.

Daisy Bell, 18, made her debut at the Black Bull pub just a few doors down from her home in Post Street, and has graced several festivals this summer, had a residency at a venue in Soho, London, and even supported Toploader during their UK tour.

After gaining a distinction in her Grade 8 singing exam, Daisy, who counts Imogen Heap and Laura Marling among her influences, started a Diploma in Music at the The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in Kilburn, London, earlier this month.

The college spawned the likes of current folk sensation Daughter and Daisy is hoping she can follow in their footsteps.

She said: “I think the college is really going to make me grow as a singer.

Daisy comes from a musical family, with her mother Lowri-Ann Richards performing on Top of the Pops with popular 80s group Tight Fit.
