Describe Your Sound

High energy, feel-good music with a mix of sun-drenched, coastal roots and fierce alt rock.

Current Activity

I have a new release about to drop. A double-A-side, 'Strong Hands/Open Skies', recorded with Matt Gio (Birds of Tokyo, San Cisco, Illy) at Rada Studios. Following the release and the launch I am off to play some shows in the UK, mainly to play Lindisfarne Festival (feat. The Fratellis, The View) before coming back to tour south west WA with good mates Kallidad.
