I would classify my music as Alternative pop/rock with a theatrical twist. It’s kind of convoluted, but unique.
Who are some of your top 5 musical influences?
Elvis Presley, James Bay, Harry Styles, Radiohead, Queen.
What do you want fans to take from your music?
I want them to take away anything they feel is right for them to take away. I feel music is something personal and I wouldn’t want to tell anyone what they should take away from my songs.
How’s the music scene in your locale?
It’s pretty dead here, they have some places you can play at, bars and what not, but none of them have a piano or much space to set an electric one up.
What is the best concert you have been to? What do you like most about playing live?
The only concert I have been to was a Macklemore concert, and I have never played a proper venue before. However, the moments I have been able to perform have always been thrilling, there isn’t much else like it.
Is there a song on your latest CD release here that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?
I really enjoy “I Know You from the 70’s” it is my first single that’s out on Itunes, and streaming networks. I love each one I’ve written and each song has its place. One of my favorites is Jealousy, I was very upset and jealous when I wrote it, and I think that emotion was transferred over well into the song.
How have you evolved as an artist over the last year?
It has been an enormous change, mainly on the human level, rather than the artistic level. A lot of events have happened in the last year, in fact, my album is called “A Year Of My Life” and it refers to my experiences in 2016, mainly from falling in love and dealing with heartbreak, but also includes other elements of my life at that time. I have evolved a lot as a person, which directly evolved me as an artist, I feel my music and each song is very honest and authentic. In which, I mean, I wrote for myself, not for money or fame etc. I have developed a much deeper relationship with the artistic side of me and have gotten over a lot of insecurities I had in my music. But I still am developing, I think as an artist, developing is something you must always be doing.
If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?
It would have to be Elvis Presley. Anyone that knows me knows my appreciation for his art, and him as a person. I think we would have some great conversations, I would be interested to know how he handled his life being so extreme.
What’s next for you?
Modeling for a little while in Paris and NYC, and still pursuing music. I am just focussing on growing and developing each day.
