Where are you currently based? 

I’m from Perth.


How did you first start playing music? 

One day Dad came home from a weekend garage sale with an old classical guitar. I was the first one to run outside and asked my dad if it was for me. He said yes and that was it!


What’s been happening recently? 

Just the usual crazy stuff I suppose. Writing music, gaming and preparing for Bigsound.


Your latest single ‘Guns and Grenades’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?

I was cramming a school project one night. Because we are using Ableton in school, the song ended up having more electronic elements in it than my previous songs. The lyrics were actually sitting in my phone for a while and I decided, “f$%& it, let’s use it”.


Where and when did you record/produce/master and who did you work with? 

I recorded the song within the span of three weekends in March this year and I worked with Ryan Botha of Audax Studios here in Perth, who also mixed and mastered the song.


How did you approach the recording process? 

I will send the full demo to Ryan. He will then program the drum and bass parts from the demo, we then record all guitar parts. Upload the synth’s from the demo and then comes the hardest part – vocals.


What does Guns and Grenades mean to you? 

When I think about the song, I think about two people standing on opposite sides of the battlefield told to fight to the death. These people are having their love torn apart by other people’s selfish interest. 


You’re playing at Bigsound 2022, how are you feeling? 

Scared and nervous but excited! It’s my first time flying to somewhere else to perform so it’s a really big milestone in my career so far.


What do you have planned for this epic showcase? 

I’m excited to play “Guns And Grenades” live!


Who are you looking forward to seeing also play at Bigsound 2022? 

To Octavia, The Last Martyr, Future Static. 


What do you like to do away from music? 

PC Gaming (especially Valorant), spend time with family and my cat Mimi and also drawing.


What’s planned for 2022? 

There may be more singles still to come and I’ll continue writing in the meantime 


Favourite food and place to hangout? 

The restaurants in China Town are bussin, and gamers like me hangout virtually online with other gamer friends.
