A MUSICIAN and artist from west Cumbria has been starting to further develop her music career. 

Emma Hunt, of Egremont, says she has started to get a lot more recognition for her work with a number of gigs and her involvement with a new artistic app.

Miss Hunt said: "I've done a number of gigs recently including one at Fitz Park in Keswick which went very well.

"I'm now starting to get a lot more recognition for my songwriting and as an artist as a whole.

"I've struggled a lot with anxiety over the years but now I'm feeling much more self assured and am enjoying performing and creating music.

"I've also joined an app called Clapper and it is one of the fastest growing video apps that there is.

"It has a good community of people that use it and is similar in style to Tik Tok. If you have something to offer, the community get behind you and work with you to help raise your account."

The owners of the app have got in touch with Emma to interview her about her musicianship. 

She has also been invited to take part in a virtual talent show where she can continue to promote her work.
