Ajah UKHow and why did you get into this profession?

We all love the language of music. Some of us have studied it and some of us are self- taught.  All of us can't live without it. It makes no sense for any one of us to not have music leading us through life. We're all passionate about changing the perceptions of women's role in the music industry from all perspectives, from the writing aspect through to the performative aspect.

When you're not working what do you like to do to chill out?

Play on our games consoles, sleep, hang out with each other and our family/friends, get intoxicated and have a laugh.
