Galloway began pursuing her passion for music from a young age. Growing up in rural Ontario, she discovered a love of nature, community, and rock music, which continues to inspire her art today. At age 6, she began classical piano training, eventually advancing through conservatory programs and voraciously delving into the world of music theory and appreciation. However, it wasn’t until she picked up a guitar at age 12 that she discovered her true calling and began pouring out original songs. Inspired by Led Zeppelin and drawing inspiration from her upbringing, current issues, and environmental concerns, she started to shape her signature sound and identity as an artist.
