How would you describe your music?
I don’t like being held down to one genre as i believe my music is certainly outside the box. I classify myself as a alternative artist though and love making all genres of music.

I regularly record in my bedroom and i might see a show or movie and it will inspire me to write sometimes while watching game of thrones or something. I also can get inspired to write even at the back of my mum’s car.

I will probably have a few more plaques and may be have a single out with Ed Sheeran. Haha i honestly don’t know only God knows.
