It started in a small bar in our home town of Lymington. The small wine bar is called The Cellar. Pete the owner had a young girl playing acoustic guitar. Her name was Carley Varley…yes that is her name!!!!
Well it started from that, we took some pictures with phones and realised that with our background of photography as a hobby, perhaps we could really do something with this.
So, after a few Long Island ice teas and some fab wine we asked if she would like to have photo taken of her playing. Thankfully, she said '“yeah, go for it” so that is exactly what we did.
In 2018 she won the Dorset Musical Talent Award from the Venus Awards and was also an Open Mic UK Finalist 2018. She has performed at the The 02 London, The Ritz and The Waldorf Hotel in London.
She is now recording her first EP which is due out in May 2019 (watch this space!!) and we have the privilege of doing her EP photography. So all very exciting here at RAW HQ!
