‘Our Love’ by Caribou
I remember hearing this album for the first time, I was on a balcony in Croatia and the sun was coming up.
‘Blonde’ by Frank Ocean
It was super refreshing, so many layers of vocals and instrumentation. An intriguing record, that kinda just got me and made me feel excited to be an artist.

'Get To Heaven' by Everything Everything
A refreshing blend of genres, unique falsettos and tracks that tread the line between bubbly and devastating. What results is a conceptual record displaying courage in tackling progressive subject matter, leaving me in a state of existential ponderance - but ready to dance - after every listen.

'Abbey Road' by The Beatles
This was one of the first albums that I heard and It was the album that inspired me to become a musician. It is now my "go to" album, when I need inspiration.
‘Beyonce’ By Beyonce
I don’t think there is a single song I wouldn’t listen to on that album. She’s such an amazing artist and pretty much makes me feel like I can conquer the world.
“Spice” by The Spice Girls
It's the perfect blend of witty lyricism, high energy dance tracks and somewhat motivational speech given the girl power ethos it presented.
'Racine Carrée' by Stromae
I used to listen to this album to help learn French at school, and ever since then it's stuck with me as a masterclass in pop.
Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino By Arctic Monkeys
I loved the lounge sound and their movement from British rock to this new age era. Alex Turner is a personal hero of mine!
Stranger in the Alps by Phoebe Bridgers
I love the blend of sadness and comforting sound of the production, especially in the song 'Scott Street'. One of the few albums with no track that I want to skip.
Thank You For The Music By ABBA
It reminds me of nights out with my sister. They have too many bops to just pick one normal album!
1999 By Joey Bada$$
This mixtape really put Joey on the map and for all the golden era of Boom-Bap, it's still my go to. Through dusty Doom & Dilla samples, soulful jazz cuts and gritty production, it remains on regular rotation week in & week out.
Only By The NIght By Kings Of Leon
This album was my childhood, there isnt a single song on there that isn’t an absolute belter. I still listen to it at least once a month and will never get bored of it.

Horizons by Surfaces
This album always brings me right back down to earth, it’s the perfect company for a blissed drive down to the beach that continuously puts me in the best mood.

'Chris' by Christine & The Queens
Her swaggering second album touches on sexual liberation, mental health and female agency as she puts herself at the centre of every single track. I saw her perform at All Points East in 2019 and it has been one of my most unforgettable gigs - she's intoxicating to watch!
Crush by Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi have been my favourite band for as long as I can remember, my entire family are fans. I listened to this album on repeat while driving to see them for the first time as a kid, the nostalgia effect alone keeps me coming back time and time again.
Hot Fuss By The Killers
The first album I was bought, it was the soundtrack to my school days and my love for it hasn't changed over the years. Flawless from start to finish, and seeing them Headline Glastonbury was uncomparable.
Prisoner By Ryan Adams
This is hard to admit as John Mayer is my absolute idol, but this is the best heartbreak grunge-filled body of work I've ever listened to. Cannot recommend it enough!
'Ctrl' By SZA
Since first discovering 'Ctrl', it has since been my go-to album and I never get tired of listening to it. Her conscious songwriting and storytelling paired with her soulful vocals makes it the perfect sing-along R&B album.
‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ By Music Travel Love
A song which brings so many memories, bringing together generations…family Christmases or university bashes, it doesn’t disappoint. I find relaxation whatever the mood, in the versatility of this hearty country classic, as an acoustic or remixed on a club night DJ set.
'Badlands' by Halsey
Ever since I heard this album I've been in love with Halsey's music. This album, in particular, has been my go-to as each song is filled with emotion, has great vocals and the music is so unique
'Wish' by The Cure
This is the first album I was introduced to when I was little, and was the album that sparked my interest in music. The Cure have helped me a lot, and have been a massive inspiration through my music studies and career!
Off The Wall by Micheal Jackson
This album for me is one of those albums that you don't need (or want!) to skip any tracks - it's good old classic disco music at it's finest, full of groovy, feel-good flavour!
Affirmation by Savage Garden
Savage Garden were an Australian Duo and Affirmation was the first album I went out and bought with my own pocket money. I still listen to it to this day. The songs from this album have stayed with me for many years.
Heavy is The Head by Stormzy
This is an album that I will never get tired of, every time I listen to it I hear something new. Stormzy is a true virtuoso who constantly refreshes my love for music.
'To Pimp a Butterfly' by Kendrick Lamar
Hip-hop doesn't get any better than this album for me. The intricate wordplay on top of impeccably produced beats, emotional stories, and the overarching theme hooked me right from the first play.
'Stress' by Seppa
With half time, you get the best of both worlds of a cross over of dnb which is half the speed, with hip-hop elements and samples, which is what I love about Seppa's production and mastering. Gritty, raw and serious swagness, you can't help but have a cheeky grin on your face and toe tap to his infectious beats. I love working out to this album, it really gets you pumped for the day!
'Midnight Organ Fight' by Frightened Rabbit
This is one of the best Scottish albums of the 00’s and one of the most influential albums in my life. It means a lot to me and so many other people, it really is a lifeline for a lot of people. The words are beautiful and honest, it’s an album to get lost in and something I hold really close to my heart.
‘Whatever People Say I Am That Is What I Am Not’ by Arctic Monkeys
Every song is perfectly written, it might as well be single after single. Showing a generation that no matter where you are from, how old you are, what your influences are, your music can be music for the masses.
Body Music by Aluna George
Tracks off this album used to play on a loop at my first job after high school, and growing up in the US it seemed like an exotic deep dive into some english electronic singer-songwriter fusion I had never heard before. It was the first album I remember being so excited to share with people to make sure they heard it to, and is still one of my go to favourites to play on repeat!
Reputation by Taylor Swift
Reputation is full of feel good power anthems and fun pop synth bangers. It’s very personal to me because I was able to relate to many of the songs and I just adore Taylor’s story telling.
'Slipknot' By Slipknot
The band were like my family as a kid; I got bullied loads in school, they helped me get tough fast.
Social Media Manager & Podcast Producer
'What You Don't See' by The Story So Far
I discover this band back in my college days, and this album has stuck with me since. To me there is no album that makes me feel better than this does.
