A lifelong Watford FC fan and one-time mascot has had her debut solo single released on all streaming services. 

Tali Jackson, 22, performed at The Camden Club in London, and says she is "so excited" to unveil her debut track 'Hottest Rooftop Bar', which came out two weeks ago. 

Having grown up in Radlett, she is currently studying acting and singing at Leeds Conservatoire whilst pursuing her career in the music industry.

Watford Observer:

The Hornets fan says she is inspired by the "iconic" Sir Elton John, after inheriting her love for the Rocket Man from her dad.

After releasing her first track, she told the Watford Observer: “I feel brilliant, it is a sense of accomplishment, and I am so lucky I had the chance to do this.”

Tali grew up going to Watford FC matches and at one stage was a mascot for a game against Norwich in 2013, aged 12.

The singer added: "I have been a fan of Watford FC all my life. My dad used to take me and my older brother to the matches. They always have an overwhelming sense of community. 

"Loving Watford FC and Elton John go hand in hand. They both had a huge influence on me growing up. His CDs were always on in the car."

She added: "Watford will always be close to my heart as I have so many happy memories growing up and enjoying football there."

She also has fond memories of her whole family getting involved with the club, as she attended the match which got the team into the Premier League in 2014, and her brother's bar mitzvah was also held in one of the Vicarage Road Stadium conference rooms. 

As well as Sir Elton, the 22-year-old said she gets lots of inspiration from 70s dad rock, Queen and Fleetwood Mac, "as I love singing and performing their music and I have so much fun".

Her single is about the joys of dating as a young woman and how it doesn’t always go to plan.
