Enoch Loyal used to sneak away from Gloriavale as a teenager, and would reattach aerials to his transistor radio that had been removed by the sect’s leaders.
Loyal, 20, would tune into FM radio during these clandestine missions and there he discovered the music of Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Eminem.
It was this discovery that allowed Loyal to dare to dream of a life outside of Gloriavale, and of pursuing a career in pop music himself.
