Biography

BronweN began her musical journey at the tender age of 4, when offered the chance to play violin. She advanced quickly, participating in music festivals and scoring high on examinations. She continued her classical studies for 8 years.

BronweN wrote her first song at age 11. One fateful day in grade 6, a classmate stole one of her songs from her backpack, photocopied it 100 times and wallpapered the class. “I was devastated. I was laughed at for weeks.” BronweN’s inspiration dried up. Her prolific songwriting came to a halt, and she quit the violin. Sick of the constant bullying, she took up smoking to try and fit in. “It wasn’t about being cool; it was about making friends. I desperately wanted to have a friend and smoking seemed like the way to make it happen.”

Fast forward to age 21, when BronweN’s poetry once again took lyrical form. Wanting a way to add music, she bought a guitar and the rockstar dream returned. As soon as she had mastered 4 chords she wrote “Evermore”, a song about her puppy love. “He always believed that I would be whatever I wanted to be. It’s cool that the first song I wrote when I came back to music was about him.”

At the age of 22, a friend let her borrow a violin. She describes it as coming home. “I knew that something was missing, but I didn’t know what until it was in my hands.” She now plays the electric violin, preferring it to the acoustic because of the effects she can use. At 22 she also quit smoking. “That choice was a no-brainer. I want to be able to sing.”
