Where are you currently based?
Melbourne Australia! Moved here in 2017 and have been in love ever since.
How did you first start playing music?
I started off Djing and producing. I would perform at under age festivals and play ‘Melbourne bounce’ and ‘trap’ music hahahaha. EVentually I was hanging with a producer friend in LA and he had heard me sing around the house. He asked me to lay down some vocals for him and from that point forward I’ve been writing and singing.
How has your lockdown experience been so far?
Thankfully way too easy. I feel very blessed to be surrounded by my family and to also be living here in Aus. We have managed to smash the curve and even during lockdown restrictions havent been so bad. Not a lot changed for me as well. I was still locked away in my room making music.
Your new single AAA is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting for this track?
yess its out. I’m over the moon that people can finally hear it. I wrote this song in London and it was a really great trip. I was listening to a lot of the Beatles and obviously went to visit Abbey road. I guess I just wanted the track to feel very real. I never really know where I gather my influence and ideas from though, it all just kinda takes place in the studio and whatever vibe or mood I’m feeling, is what will show in the song.
How did you go about writing AAA?
Writing AAA was a breeze. Like I said it was written in London with 2 super talented musicians. Caitlyn Scarlett who wrote the song with me and Matt Zara who produced the track and did that stunning guitar you hear. At that time of the trip I kinda felt homesick and just wanted to get away with my girlfriend at the time, so my emotions were high and that’s when I find it easiest to write. I think all the lyrics were done within one hour.
Where and when did you record/produce?
London! I NEED to go back. One of my favourite places on earth.
Who did you work with?
Matt Zara and Caitlyn Scarlett! as mentioned before hehe 🙂
How did you approach the recording/production process?
I never really approach anything in a ‘certain’ way. I really love to write in the moment and not think too much about it. What comes out first is the truth and the most real. So i like to keep it all in the studio.
Who are you listening to at the moment?
ahhhhh so much BENEE. Supalonely is just like . Otherwise Ball Park Music, G Flip, and some new Frank Ocean. If im not in the singer songwriter vibe ill listen to techno hahahaha. Nina Kraviz, Aphex twin, Karela Dust. All great artists.
What do you like to do away from music?
I mean its not really away from music but I still love to DJ. My mate and I throw some parties and try to raise money for charities and what not. All my friends thankfully love music so its a lot of fun. I enjoy photogaphy and videography too 🙂
What’s planned for 2020?
Who the hell knows. Were living in uncertain and unprecedented times. I’m just gonna carry on putting out music. Lots and lots of music and see what happens. I’ve got a new single and EP coming out sooooon so stay tuned for that 😉
Favourite food and place to hangout?
I live for a veg burger. Can eat them honestly every day hahahahaha. hmmmmm and avo hand rolls. I dont really mind any place to hang out, but I think amidst all the Corona restrictions I’ve found a new love for hanging with my mates at parks and gardens. We’ve been playing all our favourite childhood games like hide and seek and its just been the most fun. No need to go spend $50 on beer at a bar anytime we wanna hang out.
