Early life and education
Eyre was raised in Ealing, West London. Her father was Jamaican and her mother is Maltese. Her father was a chef who lived in his home country of Jamaica, his health too poor to travel to the UK, and her mother, who raised Eyre in London, is a cake designer. Eyre trained as a competitive swimmer before she began singing professionally.
Eyre was educated at Millfield School in Somerset; refuting the idea that she came from a privileged background, she observed that her mother could not have afforded the fees, and she went there on a “massive swimming scholarship”. She later attended the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology, where she studied musical theatre. Discovered by her management through a vocal coach in 2011, McMahon juggled school with songwriting. She signed to the publisher Warner/Chappell Music in July 2012 and a record deal with Virgin EMI followed shortly after.
