Luan Parle has been singing publicly since she was six and writing/recording songs not long after.
She appeared on The Late Late Show singing her own song at the age of twelve and was offered a recording contract not long after. Considering she had such an early brush with fame you would imagine by now she would be on her second bout of rehab or at least shop lifting on a regular basis but she is actually a very down to earth level headed girl.
I have met her many times over the years but it took a podcast to really get to know her. In this podcast she talks about spending Christmas with Elton John and James Blunt and being offered lots of free Wranglers and Happy Meals in an attempt to get her to sign a contract.
