AN up-and-coming musical star is flying high after being featured on the radio.

Honey Scott, 16, from Sible Hedingham, has had one of her songs played on BBC Radio Essex.

Her track, called Honey Dreams, featured as part of the BBC Introducting initiative and appeared on the BBC Introducing in Essex show.

Honey, who goes to the Hedingham School and Sixth Form, grew up surrounded by music as her father plays piano and her brother is a professional dancer.

She started writing her own songs when she was in Year 9.

Honey said her inspiration for her song-writing stems from her own feelings and her imagination.

Having already recorded one album, her second is due to be released later this month. Honey does all her song-writing, recording and producing in her bedroom and also plays the guitar and piano.

She uploads music every month and her songs are available on Spotify, Youtube Music, Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited.

Honey’s song was given plenty of praise on air by the show’s host Jake Peach.

He said: “Simple but so addictive, piano in the background the driving force of this song.

“New name in Honey Scott, 16-year-old singer-songwriter.

“It’s an artist that’s uploaded to us quite a few times over the last year or so, quite hasn’t hit the spot.

“But that track is so fun and its totally changed the game for her tonight.

“I believe she is someone I couldn’t keep from you any longer and an air vulnerability but also quirkyness and fun to her music.”

Hedingham School headteacher Andrew Harvison said: “We are delighted that Honey’s remarkable talent has been recognised on national radio and we are sure that this will be a stepping stone for her to even greater things.

"Honey Scott is definitely a name to watch out for in the future.”
