Daisy Dares You, born Daisy May Keeley Coburn, is a British songwriter, rock singer, and multi-instrumentalist. When she was only 14 years old, she performed a song she’d written, titled ‘Hurt,’ to an audience made up of family and friends who had gathered on Boxing Day. Matthew Marston, a friend of her mother’s, heard the song and invited Coburn to record it in his home studio.

By 2009, she had begun performing using the stage name Daisy Dares You. By then, her popularity had increased to the extent that an article written in “The Guardian” claimed that “every label in Christendom — and, believe us, in some Muslim and Semitic lands, too — is desperate to get her on their books.” A spokeswoman from her management company, Empire, was quoted as saying, “We’ve never experienced anything this quick.” In 2010, Coburn was finally signed to a record company called Jive, a subsidiary of Sony Records. This was made public after she’d been made the subject of widespread promotional coverage as a young artist to look out for in 2010 in news media such as “The Times,” “The Guardian,” and the B.B.C.

Her debut single, titled ‘Number One Enemy,’ was released on March 1, 2010. It peaked at number 13 on the U.K. Singles Chart and number 40 on the European Hot 100 Singles chart. Unfortunately, she was dropped by Jive in 2010. In 2013, she joined a band called Pink Lizards as the lead singer and guitarist. Two years later, she formed a band called Clever Thing alongside Rich Fownes.
