For those who may be new to your music, how best would you describe your sound?

That’s such a tough question; I think I flit between a few sounds, but I’d describe it as soulful, heartfelt, lyrical-driven pop. I think.

What challenges have you faced in the music industry so far?

There are too many to count; I think the main is just getting music out to a bigger audience. The way the industry is constructed means that unless you have certain things in place, it can be hard to reach above certain levels sometimes. Luckily I have found myself a beautiful following on Spotify which does help!

How difficult would you say this career path is in terms of making a name for yourself?

Oh so, so difficult. Not to say it’s not possible, because it is. But it’s definitely extremely hard to stand out and prove yourself amongst so many other artists.

How important is it for you to have creative control over the work you produce?

It’s pretty integral for me; I would hate the idea of not having complete control creatively. Otherwise what’s the point, you know? At the end of the day it comes down to the music you put out as a musician, and if that isn’t 100% what you want to be doing, then I think there’s something disingenuous about it.

Where do you draw influence and inspiration from for your work?

I take influence from literally everything, and I try and listen to a whole bunch of different genres. I listen to a lot of acoustic stuff if I need inspiration lyrically, a lot of pop if I need melodies. I think Taylor Swift and John Mayer are perfect inspirations for melodies.

If you could collaborate with anybody going forward, who would you choose and why?

10,000% Noah Gundersen because he is just insane. His collaboration with Phoebe Bridgers was something else entirely.

Tell us a random, funny fact about you that not many people know.

Oh God, err… I don’t like Nutella. There, I said it!

Do you have definitive aims or goals for your career?

I just hope to be doing what I love and making enough money to live from it. I’d love to keep doing what I’m doing and build a bigger audience.

Where do you hope to be this time next year?

Hopefully putting out music to more people and people not hating it.

What should we expect from you in the coming weeks and months?

Expect a couple of live dates and MAYBE another single, who knows? You’ll have to wait and see.
