How are you today?
I am very good thank you.
When did you first get into music?
I first started playing music as a young lad around 14 I think. I have loved music for as long as I can remember though. My family are big music fans so most of my memories growing up have a soundtrack to them.
You’re EP was just released. Can you tell me how long it took to get the songs ready?
I wrote it all pretty quickly to be honest. I finished writing the title track Fight Strong only about a week before going into the studio. I like it when you go into a studio and the songs still feel fresh.
Can you tell me a little bit about the title track, Fight Strong?
Fight Strong means the most to me on that record I think. It’s about fighting for what you believe in and a reminder to never give up.
What subjects do you like writing about?
I write about life.
And where do you find the inspiration?
Inspiration comes from being alive and experiences that I have had or I have witnessed.
Can we expect to see you perform live soon?
Yeah you can……I plan to tour a bunch in 2016.
What are your plans for the rest of the year?
I am now starting to work on/write my follow up record to fight strong. Ideally I would like to just keep on putting out music!!! That should keep me busy until Christmas lol!!!
