Career Highlights

Whilst only turning 18 this year and playing shows this year I have already played at multiple venues including;
The Rosemount Hotel & Bar 459, The Bird, Mojos and Ya Ya's. I have been on RTRfm, released and launched a physical EP, been featured in both Xpress Magazine ("Local Launches") and themusic magazine ("Live This Week, Gig Review, Competition Review)" and made the semi finals of the Fat Shan's fresh talent competition.

Current Activity

After launching my EP and recording all my written songs and releasing them, I will now focus on collaborative efforts, building a solid support through gigging and focusing on an album release for 2015.

Shared Members With

I will often jam with Cain Munns of The Soul Nana Collective and Our Man In Berlin, who has performed with me live on stage as a supportive percussionist. I have also played with The Soul Nana Collective live.
