A singer songwriter, but not as you know it.
Combining the rock music of my youth, the songwriting chops of modern wordsmiths such as Frank Turner and Brian Fallon, and the grit and passion of Springsteen, I am looking to start kicking up a fuss around the London and surrounding area, as a singer songwriter, but not in the convential sense.
Having already performed as a solo acoustic artist at some of London’s best venues such as 93 Ft East, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz club, The Fiddler’s Elbow, The Bedford and The Half Moon, as well as making it through to the live stage of the prestigious Coffee Music Project, I am now setting my sights on making waves in a full band setting.
With my debut full electric EP already out across multiple social platforms, a live album to come in november, and a second EP due in 2018, you can guarantee that you will be hearing a lot from me in the future.
“A poetic lyricist and a fantastic guitarist – a deadly and quite frankly unusual combination.” – We Love Brighton.
