Define your genre in five words or less:

nostalgic melodic alternative spiritual

How long have you been writing and playing music? Was there a song or moment that first inspired you?

I started writing songs the day I started playing at age 12. After always hanging around an old aeroplane hanger where my family would jam music together I followed suit and did the same with my friends.

If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be and why?

I would like to know if Bob Marley digs my stuff...

What are your favourite venues?

The Northern (Byron Bay) Jive (Adelaide) The Evelyn (Melbourne)

What are your top 5 favourite albums?

Neil Young - Harvest Bob Marley & The Wailers Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way America - america Counting Crows - August & Everything After

What is your most memorable gig (playing or watching)?

Playing splendour in the grass while i was still in high school with my old band…It was crazy!

Where do you usually draw inspiration from as a writer? Do you have a process? eg music first, lyrics first etc

Mostly always erupts from a melody i have had floating around but it always changes. Sometimes i will be inspired by a moment or nostalgia and will pen out something on the spot.
