Where are you currently based and what is the music scene like there?
I’m currently based in London. There’s always a gig to go to, and there is definitely the demand for it. It’s great to see people still paying for gigs despite the whole free music thing. Unfortunately, the electronic music scene here isn’t being treated with enough love by the local authorities, with laws such as the midnight curfews on Hackney venues inevitably suffocating the nightlife. Parties always find a way though…
How did you first start playing music and what brought you to this point?
My family has always been into music, especially my dad. He taught me how to play the basics of guitar, then I started working more on the studio side of things. I’ve played in bands, always loved playing live and recreating that energy in the studio. It’s something I’ll always do.
You are great at perfecting happy sad dance music, and the new track of yours ‘Grin’ is leaning on the indie pop vibes, what influenced the sound and songwriting for this Grin?
Where and when did you record?
I recorded the vocals in a friends studio, and did all the rest at home. The process was quite stop-start, and took 6 months or so.
I hear that you’ve always had a lyric book that you use for song writing (see pictures), where you draft, workshops and notes down anything that comes to your mind, how did this process start and why is it so effective for you?
How long have you been writing songs in this way?
Who are you listening to at the moment?
What do you like to do outside of music?
What do you have planned for the remainder of 2018 going into 2019?
I’ve got some new material that I’ll be pushing out before the end of the year. In 2019 I want to be releasing tracks and performing shows every second of every day.
