Formation

I started writing songs throughout high school, studying music alongside Alex Reid (drummer) and Shaun Liddell Jennings (bass) and soon after I played a few solo shows I asked them to form my backing band along with Shaun Mcilroy (guitarist) and we recorded an EP together in 2014. I play gigs in varied ensemble sizes and to perform a trio gig, I approached fellow singer/songwriter and frontman of These Winter Nights, Lucas Jones (Guitarist/Backing Vocals) to perform smaller ensemble gigs with me.
