How did the band come to be?
I am a solo singer songwriter and started playing guitar when I was about 6 (not that you can tell from my skill level now!) and I’ve been performing, writing and recording regularly for the last 4 years or so.
Do you have any releases coming up in the new year?
I’ve just finished some studio time recording some new tracks, so they’ll be coming out next year, they’re each a bit different and I’m really looking forward to sharing them with everyone!
What is something you want listeners to take away from your music?
I want people to remember the hook…When I’ve finished a song, I give it a couple of days to see if the hook is still stuck in my head and if my other half is still wondering around the house singing it to herself, if not I’ll move on and try again.
With everything that is going on in our world what is one cause or organization that you are passionate about?
I’m really passionate about wildlife conservation and looking after the space and the animals that are around us. I’m based in North Yorkshire and it’s such a beautiful part of the country, I think that looking after it is really important as well as looking after the wildlife that call it home too.
What is your writing process like?
I’ll often come up with a lyric when I’m out and about and I’ll hang onto it until I get back to my home studio, and then I build on it from there. It’s usually a lyric that comes first. Recently when flicking through my song book I realised that it was nearly full of choruses with no verses, and verses with no hook, so I’ve adopted a new rule now that I have to always finish a song if I start it, even if it ends up rubbish, I can always fine tune it later, but I always finish it.
To follow up with the last question, what inspires your sound?
I take inspiration from so many it’s really difficult to pinpoint! I enjoy music from a wide range of artists, from Elvis and 50’s Rock n Roll through to the likes of Cypress Hill and everything in between.
Any tours coming up soon?
I’ve got nothing tour wise in the pipeline at the moment, but I’m hoping to get back out playing to big crowds again as soon as possible!
