From a young age, I have been exposed to a wide range of musical genres, thanks to my parents’ eclectic record collection. It included iconic albums from The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Queen and a whole catalogue of classical recordings.
This exposure allowed me to develop a high interest in music. I started playing brass in the school orchestra from the age of 7.
At 14 I picked up the guitar and developed a hybrid picking style after studying people like Ralph McTell. I also play piano and started writing music at 15, usually about the human condition.
I categorise these as songs about people, places and perspectives.
