Born in Haverfordwest, Pochin attended the Royal Academy of Music (Junior Academy) and the Wells Cathedral School. She went on to read music at Trinity College, Cambridge as a choral scholar and also trained at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. In 2005 she was signed by Sony BMG to record her debut album, Venezia, released in 2006 as Classic FM's "Record Of The Week". Five months after the album's release, the British owned chocolatiers, Hotel Chocolat introduced a new chocolate range named for her, inspired by a description of her voice in The Times as "sounding like melted chocolate".

Pochin is married to the conductor and composer, James Morgan. The couple met at Cambridge University and first worked together composing for the Footlights. They went on to form Morgan Pochin Music Productions
