Where are you currently based?

Currently based in Sydney, Australia

How did you first start playing music?

Music started at church as I played drums for years before transitioning into production.

What’s been happening recently?

Recently I’ve been resting and writing short films I’m planning to shoot in the future.

Your EP ‘Life I Chose’ is out now, what influenced the sound and songwriting?

This ep was influenced by the drive to be a better artist. It shows a timeline of how music started for me and what it has become. From channeling my poems into songs to producing sounds that turn into beautiful music.

How did you go about writing the EP?

This ep is a reflection of my life so I drew from my life and placed it on this record. With my friend’s help, I was able to find my sound while improving my writing and performance.

Please tell us about the single ‘Hold On’ how it came about and what it means to you:

Hold on started as a motivational song I wrote for myself. I linked up with producer friend Finbar Stuart to create and we ended up with a part 1 version of this song that never came out. This song did well at shows but we wanted to better it and we had one more session while I was on tour and came up with this masterpiece. Hold on is basically a reminder to keep going and at this point in my life, I feel this message was needed a lot. It therefore means a lot to me and it’s beautiful seeing people resonate.

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

I worked with Finbar Stuart at Elefant Traks studios in Sydney after I came back for a break during the tour with baker boy. Fin re produced the beat and I wrote to it. We recorded it there and finished it off at his house. He then mixed the song and I linked up with Lewis Mitchel to master the song. This was also the last song for my ep so it was amazing when we finished it.

How did you approach the recording process?

We recorded without a stand hence I held the mic like a dynamic mic and basically performed the whole song. This was finished at fins studio and we knew we had a great song.

Who are you listening to at the moment?

I’m currently listening to JID, Amber Mark and Stormzy.

What do you like to do away from music?

I Love film. I’m mostly either watching or writing or working on pieces that I’m yet to put out.

What’s planned for the remainder of 2022 going into 2023?

After a hectic year, I think it’s time to rest so I’ll be spending time with friends and socialising and visit my friends’ events and shows.

Favourite food and place to hangout?

Favourite food is fried rice and favourite place to hangout is Milk beach in Vaucluse.
