Her biggest calling card so far has been One Direction’s number one hit Little Things, which she co-wrote with Ed Sheeran.
As well as the 1D credit, Fiona’s CV boasts work with Grammy-winning producer-musicians John Shanks and David Hodges, Ghostpoet, Gwyneth Herbert and Mikill Pane.
When she’s not in the studio, she runs a successful night at Servant Jazz Quarters in Dalston or hits the road to support pals Ed Sheeran and Gwyneth Herbert on tour.
Now, Fiona is ready to unveil the songs she’s been crafting for herself in a little studio near the British Museum, London, with producer Shawn Lee and engineer Pierre Duplan.
They’re a gentler meeting of pop and folk than her previous credits, as the subtle melodies and capricious lyrics of debut single The Machine will attest.
This is quality songwriting - hypnotic rhythms and clanging percussion set on a collision course with Fiona’s fragile vocals and plucky guitars.
She describes her album Talk To Strangers as ‘pop in disguise’. It's an accurate description for the dozen hook-laden tracks she’s crafted with harp, violin, double bass, accordion and guitar.
Frontrunner The Machine is released on 10 March through Navigator Records and comes backed with a remix from Ed Harcourt and south London rapper Fem Fel. The album follows on 28 April.
