“I grew up in Co. Down Northern Ireland, busked around Australia when I was 18 and am now making music in Leeds.”
“My songs are a cocktail of genres! Folk, pop, reggae, electronica… In a nutshell I’d say I am alternative indie-pop. I’m aiming to get my first EP out after Christmas. After that I’ll start working on my first album!”
