Where are you currently based?
I currently live in Adelaide near the water!
How did you first start playing music?
I started playing music when I was 16ish I actually just decided to dust off my brothers old guitar and look up some YouTube tutorials on how to play songs I liked at the time.
What’s been happening recently and how has your Covid experience been so far?
I’ve just finally released the EP ‘Coping Mechanisms’ via Dew Process which I’m super happy to be able to share. Covid has obviously impacted music and arts this year but personally it hasn’t been too bad for me. I’ve enjoyed a bit of down time. The one thing I miss the most is playing live and touring so I’m looking forward to potentially getting back at it and doing that in the somewhat near future. Fingers crossed!
How did you go about writing Coping Mechanisms and what does this EP mean to you?
I wrote the EP across 2018 and 2019. I think this EP to me is finding hope in darker times and strength in small things even when it feels impossible.
Where and when did you record/produce EP? Who did you work with?
I recorded the EP towards the end of 2019 in Melbourne’s Shed Studios with John Castle. Other collaborators I worked closely with on this EP are my great friends Benjamin Tamblyn and Mario Spate, as well as writing with Joel Quartmaine & Konny Kersting.
What did you find most challenging and rewarding throughout the process?
I think the challenge wasn’t so much the creation and writing of the music but persevering through personal issues while trying to remain creatively energised and enthused. Completing the EP and more so releasing it has been the rewarding part and seeing how it has resonated with others.
Any live shows coming up?
December 11th in Adelaide at JIVE I’ll be playing my first headline show of the year and I’m over the moon about it.
What do you like to do away from music?
Cooking, crafting, walking my doggo, binging tv series and seeing my fam and friends.
