Such is the case for Helen who has been laying down music since 2009 with her debut EP Girl in Love. Since then, she has gone on to record a second EP Finding Gold in 2015 to much acclaim, and to be a recipient of the Telstra Road to Discovery Award. Clare Bowditch, with whom Helen once performed a duet, said, “I did not know Helen before I heard her sing. Once I heard her sing, I couldn't un-hear it: she has such talent, such a beautiful voice."
