Tell us about your latest release:
“Ashes” started out as a poem about innocence and naivety before I set it to music about a year later. I was fortunate enough to work alongside good mates Matt Blom, (drums), Michael Savage (bass) and Andy Lawson (recorded & mixed). The track is a melting point of all of my influences from electronic music to pop and R&B, it also marks the point where I decided to delve deeper into production and engineering.
Where can I get your music?
