I am a musician, songwriter and producer based in Liverpool, England.
After taking violin and piano lessons as a young child, I began playing violin in a variety of orchestras and functions within my local community, allowing me to develop my acclaimed performance aptitude. Whilst I began playing the guitar at the age of 13 and have been songwriting since the age of 14, I seriously began recording and releasing material in 2011 after receiving attention from my YouTube channel, which still produces guitar covers of rock and punk songs. The channel currently stands at over 175,000 views and over 1,000 subscribers.
Whilst producing my debut album, I aimed to show the genre for what it really was: a hard grafted and uncluttered badge of simplicity and pride. From the stadium-rock chorus of “Come on Down to the Beach” to the placid verses of “Where Am I Now?” the album maintains a stark and confident exploration of the themes of social hierarchy, nightlife and relationships.
In July 2014, the lead single from the album “Come on Down to the Beach” was chosen as “Song of the Month” by BBC Radio Shropshire and subsequently received airplay each day across the output of the station for the entire month. This drew significant attention to my music. I also did a live session on Shropshire’s “BBC Introducing” show where I performed four tracks from the album.
I spent 2015 writing and recording my sophomore effort, “Defining Moments”, which was released on February 1st, 2016. This is a concept album exploring the anxiety and frustration I felt whilst trying to take control of my future as a young person leaving home. Whilst characters are present, the songs are primarily interlinked with key lyrics and phrases that unfold over the course of the record. The main themes are social hierarchy, materialism and relationships held exclusively over the internet.
Currently, I’m studying for a degree in Popular Music at the University of Liverpool
