Where are you currently based?
I’m currently based in the inner west. Gadigal land.
We had a piano at my childhood home that I’d just baby hammer fist on some random notes and laugh at. I remember one evening my father played the Beatles song “Let it Be” when I was four and I was incredibly fascinated. He taught me for the first couple of weeks after that and then he decided to put me into piano lessons, the rest is history.
Lockdown . Gigs and sessions have cancelled so I’ve just been getting into a nice routine for my wellbeing . A fair bit of meditation , working out, creative writing, drinking and playing video games with my roommates.
The sound is pretty much a culmination of what I was listening to at the time which was a lot of Blood Orange, Frank Ocean, Mac Ayres and Bryson Tiller. The songwriting was influenced by one of my past relationships, it all just poured out one evening.
I love trying to make something different each time, whether it’s through different instrumentation or weird effects. I collated some songs I had a vibe on and they all sound different yet they are all embedded in the same DNA and have a cohesive theme
It’s never the same. Sometimes I recycle old songs and make a Frankenstein version, which could be quick or extremely crafted and slow. Other times I just catch a vibe, hear something and finish it quickly on the piano or guitar.
A whole bunch of trial and error.
Currently I’m bumping lot of Jai Paul, Steve Spacek, Milan Ring, Flwr Chyld and anything from My Analog Journal.
I love working out, FaceTiming my friends chilling with my dog, reading and listening to audiobooks. I’m into to this audiobook called PIMP: The Story of My Life by Iceberg Slim. It’s ice cold.
Plans seem to change radically, so I guess I’m just going to stick to my health routine and release some more tracks.
