What informs your music and songwriting?
I think it can often stem from my surroundings and circumstances. Not all of my writing is necessarily autobiographical though – sometimes I overhear a conversation or read a poem and find my inspiration there.

How have you evolved as an act over the years?

I have definitely honed my craft in the past couple of years. There is always more to learn and more ways to become a better version of yourself so I try and always keep that in mind. Being a musician you are usually quite self-critical and I find that this has helped me to further my work.

What are you up to at the moment artistically?

I am currently working on material for my next record and a video for my last record.

What’s on your rider?
Whiskey and orange juice.

Tell us your most embarrassing or surreal experience.

My most surreal experience would be the time I played a gig in a Sainsbury’s supermarket. It wasn’t forgettable.

What song do you wish you’d written?

Nights in White Satin by The Moody Blues. It is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard – the string arrangement is spectacular.

What’s your worst lyric?
My worst lyric would probably be in one of the first songs I ever wrote at the age of around thirteen. I’ll leave you with the mystery of what it may be – it’s for the best.
