Essential: Nilüfer is a 23-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist from West London. She has been writing songs in her head since she was six, and on the guitar since she was 12, but it took a while for her to pluck up the courage to share her music with the world. When she finally did, she said: “It was horrible. I loved it”. She played the Introducing stage at Reeperbahn festival in Germany in 2017 and featured on the prestigious BBC Sound of 2018 poll.
