How old are you? 

22

 

What is your genre of music?

Acoustic/ Folk/ Pop. I think it is really difficult to generalise acoustic music.

 

Give a Little Bio of yourself.

I’m a young singer song writer from the South of England. I start learning to play guitar around two years ago and performed for the first time just over 1 year ago. Since then I have been writing music and performing as much as possible. Now performing upwards of 2 times a week, I am starting to expand my fan base around the South and hoping to have my first EP release come the New Year.

 

How long have you been doing music? 

1 Year, 2 months.

 

What made you go in to music? 

I bought a guitar one day randomly about 2 years ago and started learning. Only when a friend asked me to support their band did I really consider working towards being a musician.

 

What Instruments do you play?

Only guitar. Working towards playing piano in my sets pretty soon though.

Are you a Signed Artist?

No.

 

Who are your influences?

Older influences include Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley and newer influences are Passenger, Nizlopi and Matt Corby.

 

When will you be releasing new music?

Hopefully in the New Year around the end of January as I am recording at the start of December.

 

How do you get inspiration to write songs? 

Things that happen in day to day life. Any emotion that comes from interacting with people, an experience or something you see can be made into a song. I believe raw emotion creates the best music.

 

Where is your dream place to perform (Country)? 

United Kingdom. I would love to sell to The Shepherds Bush Empire one day. I’ll keep dreaming.

 

Who would you like to perform with, if you got the chance?

Passenger. He is my biggest inspiration; what he stands for, his music, the way he creates and produces his material, everything I want to do.

 

Where do you see yourself in 2-5 years?

Hopefully on a stage playing to an audience singing my songs back to me, if not, still working hard to get there.

 

If you weren’t doing music what would you be doing? 

Teaching. I studied for 4 years to be a PE teacher and don’t really feel like I will be moving towards that field anymore.

 

Who is your favourite Artist or Band at the Moment?

At the moment it is an Australian singer songwriter called Matt Corby. He is writing and performing the most incredible material at the moment that is fresh and different.

 

If you could go on Tour with any Singer or Band who would it be and why? 

Passenger again. I truly believe his followers are there because they love his music. Not because they follow a crowd or listen to the charts, but simply because they appreciate amazing music.

 

What was the first song you wrote?

I wrote a song called ‘Miss You Much’. At the time I thought it was amazing and performed it for a few shows, but now it never gets sung or even featured on long set lists.
