    About me

    From learning to play my favourite video game songs by ear on my Yamaha PSR-210 keyboard, helped ignite a desire to teach myself further in music making and theory. This became the root of my evolution: Singer-Songwriter, Musician(Keyboard & Drum Kit) and Music Producer. As a singer, artists such as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Frank Ocean and Childish Gambino taught me to be more daring, raw in my lyrics, unravel my emotion and lay it out on a table with nothing held back. As a Musician, I was given the foundations of music theory through school, piano lessons, and reinforced through self teaching. Also learning to play some of my favourite songs had a great impact on me, as I started to use chords from those songs and compose my own ideas.

    Producing was a role that I took on due to necessity. It pushed me on the path to not only create my own soundscape but to also materialise the abstract melodies in my head. I never try to make each song I create sound like the last, which always gives me the space to explore different sounds and use different approaches when creating a song. All these roads led to the creation of my first song ‘Limbo’ , which I released in 2019. I’m currently in the final stages of my EP which is being mixed at the moment, just finished composing a song for a visual project with a friend of mine which will be released soon, and a few other collaborative projects with some artists I’ve been working with as well that will be coming out this year.
