-

What was the first instrument you fell in love with?

The keyboard/piano; at about 4 years old.

What kind of music did you love when you were younger?

I loved Jazz, Soul, RnB, Funk and Hip Hop.

What was the first album you remember owning?

The first album I bought myself was Boy In The Corner, but I had loads in the house from my parents’ collection – From Stevie Wonder and Prince to Steely Dan. It was varied.

What is the one song you wished you could have written yourself?

Thriller, right?

Do you have any habits or rituals you go through when trying to write new music?

I have to be alone or have very few people in the room while I churn out my ideas. It’s often a very personal process, as my songs are introspective.

Who are your favourite artists you have found yourself listening to at the moment?

There are too many, to be honest. But, I’ve found myself constantly playing Lucky Daye’s last album, and Victoria Monet’s recent one too. D’Mile, the producer of both, is inspiring.

If you could open a show for anyone in the world, who would it be?

Jay-Z

What do you find is the most rewarding part about being a musician?

Well, art itself is my favourite form of self expression. It’s nice to share something from within and it be received and resonate with other people; it invokes thoughts and feelings.

And what is the most frustrating part?

Being solely creative isn’t enough – you have to be a whole team of people in one.

And what is the best piece of advice you have received as a musician?

Be original and authentic.
