may payne is a 20-year-old singer-songwriter based in manchester

may grew up on a diet of bob dylan and van morrison which fed her love of intricate, intelligent songwriting and the nostalgic sound of a clean, tight ensemble. these two facets are blended together in songs where sensitive melodies are underpinned by warm, satisfying harmonies, informed by my love of jazz and r&b music.

the vulnerability of her lyrical content sits within a group of extremely talented musicians, whose skill and feel help transform her singer-songwriter piano based music into something unique and vibrant.
