Your set to release your EP ‘STAY’ on May 4th, tell us more about it.
‘Stay’ is the first project I’ve worked on since getting sober and the songs reflect a certain clarity and ambition I’ve previously just doused with alcohol
Listen to the lead single STAY;
What was the writing process like?
I love writing songs and being around people who love writing songs, so once you find the right people – the process is very blissful and if it’s right…easy.
What was the recording process like?
One day a friend of mine couldn’t make it to his studio time and asked if I’d like to take it because he was going to be charged for it anyways, and that’s how this whole thing started. It was surprising how well it turned out.
Describe each track in two words.

What made you start making music?
I’ve spent a lot of my life alone in basements or cabins or cars and writing songs is a very solitary process if you want it to be – being a bit of a loner it’s something I’ve always been able to do and enjoy by myself. Picking up a guitar and writing a few lines just came naturally. I’ve walkways loved writing and putting it to music just happened.
Where do you see yourself in 5 Years?
Hopefully still writing and touring
What do you do when you’re not working on music?
I write short stories, I walk a lot and go to matinee’s by myself quite a bit
