Spectral grew up in musical surroundings. As early as 7, she learned to play the piano following her father’s influence. In high school, Spectral started singing, writing and performing her own songs. By 14 she had taught herself to play the guitar and started taking performances in pubs and small music venues. It was at this time that she knew a career in music was her calling.
Whilst studying Popular Music at Falmouth University she fell in love with drum and bass. Feeling an immediate strong affinity with the genre, she decided to teach herself to DJ. She soon started DJing parties in Falmouth, playing her first sets at small local venues.
Entering the final year of her degree she decided to take her love for songwriting and composition and use it to produce drum and bass. Spectral’s experience stood her in good stead, quickly picking up the production and arrangement of tracks. Her first release was extremely well received. Her 2nd, with “Incurzion Audio”, got an amazing response, currently sitting at 11.4K plays on Soundcloud.
Spectral now specialises in all things deep, dark and minimal. Her influences come from labels such as Flexout Audio, Dispatch Recordings and 1985 Music. She has since gained recognition from UKF with 2 features in 2020. She is the winner of EQ50’s mentorship programme and is the Critical Music mentee for 2020-2021. Her debut EP is expected later this year.
She has played all over Bristol and Falmouth and represented Incurzion Audio for 1985 Cardiff, Vaults in 2020. Spectral is set to open the Critical Stage for Hospitality Weekend in the Woods in September 2021. One thing is for sure, the only way is up for this creative force.
