People of Folkestone is a public portrait photography project which began during the second national covid lockdown. It was born from a desire to continue interacting with society during the restrictive measures of social distancing and to ensure people are continued to be seen and heard. People of Folkestone is open to anyone and strives for inclusivity, visibility and representation for all.

Dear Pariah Described last year as a “A salve on frayed nerves” by Get in Her Ears, Dear Pariahs songs circle around her lifelong battle with a disease that has scarred many organs, such as her brain and lungs. As the journey continues, so does the music. Performing under the moniker since 2012, she has been called "exceptional" by Simon Raymonde, of the Cocteau Twins and received an Emerging Excellence Award by Help Musicians UK, which funded the making of her debut album 'Misc' in 2016. In 2019, too sick to record music, she instead released a collection of ‘Bedroom Demos’ which received a 9/10 review by Line of Best Fit "an honest collection of beautifully-crafted folk songs. It doesn’t flinch from its subject matter, but nor does it dramatise it" In 2020, she released ‘Live at Thais’ EP which was played by Lauren Laverne on BBC 6Music and is now in the process of getting ready to record again.
