Where do you represent?
Originally from south London, now I’ve moved up town to Chelsea! I love London, it has a fast beating pulse and pushes you to the limits. Sometime you have to step outside and take stock though. I like to relax outside of London now and then. When you’re in the big city there’s always a lot to do!
How long have you been into music?
My earliest memories are of music. I loved watching this old video of Jimi Hendrix at my nans house and I loved singing songs by Bob Marley and The Cure! My mum got me a harmonica for my 4th birthday and a guitar for my 6th birthday. So it was always music right from the start.
What inspires your music?
As a kid I loved playing ‘rock stars’. I watched movies like Wayne’s World and Bill and Ted and wanted to be a rocker like them. So I guess movies. Now I am more inspired by travel, people and stories I hear. I love being creative, writing songs and experimenting in the studio.
What has been your favourite moment in your career so far?
That’s a hard question! I’d have to say headlining reggae beach festival in Da Nang, Vietnam. I was so happy there, it was a beautiful and perfect location on the beach and the crowd were amazing.
What goals do you wish to achieve in music?
I’d like to tour Europe and America and get into the UK dance chart. Mostly I’d just like to push my DJing because it makes me so happy to play a great set and see everyone loving the vibe!
Would you change anything about the music industry?
Like any industry, the people at the top are the last ones to adjust to change so they cut their own noses off despite their face and we see independent labels rise whilst the majors lose their power. I guess the music industry is levelling itself out that way since the internet came along. So I don’t need to change it. It’s already changing itself full throttle! I guess I’d like to destroy all those unfair contracts they give out!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
I would like to have released an album or two, have toured Europe and the USA and to be married with two children. Those are all massive goals but I know I’ll get there. I am grateful to be happy and healthy with all of my friends and family supporting me so I just hope I can make them proud over the next few years.
