Tell us a bit about yourself? I'm an 18 year old singer-songwriter originally from Hertfordshire but have recently moved to Reading. I love indie and rock music with influences such as Catfish and the Bottlemen and Circa waves. Jake bugg has more recently inspired me to write music that I'm currently producing.

There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? Bringing back raw music, with just guitar and vocals. Songs that lyrics can relate to anyone and melodies that you can't get out of your head.

What’s your back-story? A lot of my music are stories that have happened to me like break ups and love, I kinda like in my music how as my song writing goes on it almost tells a story of my life. Not every song is about me though and I like to take other peoples stories and write about them. I love the feeling of writing a tune knowing that 2 different people could connect to it but in a totally different way!

What are you working on at the moment? I'm currently working on a few singles which will eventually lead up to an EP with gigs happening all the time

What's the first song you remember hearing? The who-who are you

You're in a Karaoke Bar - What's your go to song? The winner takes it all-Abba

What was the first gig you went to? Catfish and the Bottlemen at Koko when I was 14 years old.

Which song do you wish you'd written? Kathleen-Catfish and the Bottlemen. The lyrics in this song are genius and when you hear it live it genuinely sounds huge no matter where they play it.

Which song changed your life? Lightning bolt-Jake Bugg. This is one of the first songs I learnt on guitar and played live. Love the pace and lyrics too!

Which song would you like played at your funeral? Love's runs out- Circa waves

What song is stuck in your head right now?Meteor-Broken hands

What was the first Album you bought? Trick to life- The Hoosiers

Which song made you want to play music? You only live once- The strokes
