Fifteen-year old Framlingham College student, Freya Roy, is the next budding Framlingham College music star. She is hoping to follow in the footsteps of former Brandeston Hall student Ed Sheeran and College students Laura Wright and Charlie Simpson. Freya, who lives in Halesworth is known for gigging regularly with her atmospheric indie/folk style of music. Her debut album, Wait in the Water, is due for release in June. You can hear a sample of Freya's album below and you can keep up to date with all her news at facebook.com/freyaroymusic. And here's what people are saying about Freya already: Paul Taylor, Headmaster: 'Freya is a very real young talent who has proved herself time and again to be both an original and an exciting performer. She works relentlessly at her art, and this has shown through in some live performances of rare quality in one so young. All at the College are hugely proud of her.' Amy Wragg: ‘Freya Roy is an astonishingly talented 15 yr old singer/songwriter and guitarist from Halesworth. Utilising a looping pedal and her delightful voice she creates layers of emotive, heartfelt and atmospheric indie/folk songs. Her début album comes out in June’ The Chilli Festival in Suffolk: ‘Freya is a 15 year old singer-songwriter, composing for the best part of 2 years. Inspired by artists such as Bon Iver, KT Tunstall and T-rex, it is clear that she wears her influences on her sleeve. Her reflective and insightful brand of Folk Pop will leave listeners enchanted, and chilled like our Chipotle Chilli.’
