ABOUT

I’m a songwriter and to be honest I like to do my own thing and I’ve never been a great collaborator on songs. However I’m open to exploring things with other musicians to see what happens. Difficult to pin down my music. I’m influenced by all musical styles from Blues, Hip Hop, Funk, Country, Classical, Motown, Metal, Jazz, R&B, Drum & Bass depending on my mood! I like to challenge my musical tastes.
