What made you go in to music?

You recently released your new single ‘World Alive’ tell us more about it:
What was the writing process like?
The writing process for this one was fairly smooth, it was one of those songs that wrote itself. It was very spur of the moment.
What was the recording process like?
This track took a fair while to track down. We had drums and bass done for ages and just didn’t know where to take the song for a while.
Who did you work on the single with?
I worked this single with my good friend Dan Lambert at Valhalla studios, he’s a killer producer and we vibe so well together.
What message are you trying to get out?
This track means a lot to me, it was a song written when I was in a bit of a rough head space. I was single at the time and was feeling quite lonely, I was also unsure on my future movements. So it’s written about that desire for a “love” or future goal but not wanting to get hurt along the way.
Describe the track in two words.
You shared the stage with JP Cooper, how did that come about and what was the experience like?
Supporting JP Cooper was for sure a career highlight so far. He is such a wicked musician and an even better guy! He came through my hometown of Cambridge and the venue asked me if I wanted to open up, which I jumped at the chance of course!
Do you have any collaborations coming up with any up coming artists?
No collaborations as of yet, my latest collab got released through Sony this year. It was a dance track with a guy called Moe Aly!
Would you be up for collaborations if other musicians wanted one with you? and who would they have to contact?
I’m down for anything like that! Just hit up any of my socials!

This year will consist of more gigs, lots of writing and a couple more releases

I have so many from all across genres. My favourites are James Bay, Ben Howard, John Mayer, Ryan Adams.
Which TV channel would you like one of your songs to be played on?
Any TV channel would be epic!!
