Angharad Drake has been making music since high school. The Sunshine Coast based singer, songwriter and producer has five recordings under her belt. And she is only 24. Her music is a nod to UK singer/songwriter and lady boss Laura Darling as well as Argentinian indie-folk sensation José González, but Angharad is most certainly an artist in her own right; not contrived or mimicky in the slightest, like some modern folk acts tend to be.  Angharad took some time to speak with Music Love about songwriting, her influential family, and how she got her RM Williams boots wet in her music video for Baby while filming in Somerset Dam, Queensland.
