Kent in the south east of England.
Please give an example of your music writing process?
In regards to the band normally one of us would have a musical idea to play in rehearsal which we all add to, I then take that away and write the lyrics to it, the music tends to come first in our writing process.
What are you working on right now?
Currently demoing ideas and songs to put forward for a 6 track mini album to be released later on in the year.
What is your gear setup?
I play a Fender classic 72 tele deluxe through a Fender blues junior amplifier, various distortion pedals with echoes and reverb. Looking to expand everything when I can.
What do you like to do outside of music and does it affect your music?
I work outside for my day job, which in turn gives me solitude to process lyrics and ideas.
How would you describe your music genre?
Do you know any music theory?
Basic. I basically know the name of chords and go from there.
What are your plans for the future?
At the moment to keep on writing and releasing music.
