At the age of 15, Daisy Coburn
began making headlines as the electro-pop chanteuse behind Daisy Dares You
, a collaborative project with songwriter Matthew Marston
took a page from artists like Lily Allen
and Kate Nash
-- two artists whose music also helped inform her own quirky songs -- by using MySpace to her full advantage, attracting fans with each newly posted demo recording and blog update. The move paid off, with Jive Records signing her in 2009 and readying her debut album for an early 2010 release.
