Definitely paying homage to the modern pop super-writers like Ben Folds and Lily Allen, as well as Joni Mitchell-like folk influences. Cheeky and sweet vocals mixed with fable-like narratives.
I started dabbling on the piano after I won a JUMP mentorship and some funding in 2011 - it allowed me to get set up with some recording gear at home, and soon after that I started writing.
Since I've started playing in a band with him at uni, Jacob Diamond rocks my world. I also love The Lonely Brothers, Timothy Nelson and The Infidels and The Empty Cup.
The Cat Empire, The Panics, Joe Black Trio, Formidable Vegetable Sound System.
Songwriting! I don't get much of a thrill from performing by myself just yet - I'm too used to the good vibes of playing with others. So most of my enjoyment is in the writing at this stage.
Preparing for the launch of the Hollypop EP, gigging, practicing my piano chops, writing.
A bunch of local jazz projects.
