Ellie Finnerty received a THF bursary in 2014 to help pay for professional singing lessons – and hasn’t looked back! Now 21, she is a singer/songwriter who writes honest and witty lyrics based on real life experiences, with a mission to spread positivity through her music.

Her latest venture during the pandemic, when performing and touring have been impossible, is to create a lyric video for her song 'Six Pound Forty', using words from the song illustrated by friends, family and supporters edited together to create a lyric video due to be posted on YouTube on release day, May 21st.

All the best with your venture, Ellie!

STOP PRESS! Ellie is flying off to Greece and Turkey where she has contracts as a singer in a variety of holiday destinations. Go, go, go girl!
