About Artist

I was born in Hammersmith, London in 1989 and I'm a folk singer-songwriter. When I write a song, I try to convey an atmosphere, bringing the listener to the place I'm coming from. I want them see where the song lies: the setting, the colours and the textures. I am in love with words and often write my lyrics as poems before coming up with the music that best serves them. I listen to and enjoy all sorts of music: folk, rock, hip-hop, alternative, jazz, blues, pop, soul, reggae etc. But my own creative musical influences lie mainly in the folk and blues area - Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, John Martyn, Laura Marling to name a few. So far my musical career has consisted of small gigs and playing on street corners which I have done in the UK, Australia and Cape Town on various backpack travelling exploits. Recently I've been recording acoustic demos which is a beautiful process. I love hearing songs in their rawest state, no tricks or frills, just pure, honest music. I am fascinated by all creative mediums, but seem to have ability in only one of them. And I'm glad that it's music. "A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence." ~Leopold Stokowski
