RISING Bromsgrove singer-songwriter Runrummer returns to her roots later this month when she performs at Worcester's The Courtyard on March 29.

It will be the first time the performer, real name Livi Morris, has appeared outside of London following a string of sell-out concerts in the capital.

She takes the name Runrummer from the former Birmingham nightclub, which apparently was one of her dad's favourite music venues.

A former pupil at Finstall First and Bromsgrove School, Livi has been attracting considerable attention with her version of electro-pop following the release of her debut EP in November.

Livi originally wrote poetry before turning to song writing at a young age.

Some of her songs have been performed by other artists, the most high profile of which were The Chainsmokers.

But songwriting had to take a back-seat as Livi embarked on university, obtaining a degree in geography and politics at Lancaster University and then following up with a masters degree from the University of Sussex.

Now based in East London, Livi admitted to missing her music while embarking on her university studies.

The 24-year-old said: "I hadn't written anything for three to four years and I thought maybe I'd lost the ability."

However, Livi held her nerve and hasn't looked back since, under the guiding light of acclaimed electronic producer John Hopkins.

Livi is now a producer in her own right and has a schedule of summer festivals coming up.

She will be supported at The Courtyard, which is situated just of Forgate Street, by local talent Slow Tapes, Poppy WS and Chloe Mogg.

Tickets, expected to sell out, can be found at runrummer.com

Anyone interested in listening to Livi in advance can get a taste of her music on spotify and ITunes.
