Tell us how it all started. What had you first interested in music?

My dad is a singer-songwriter and he used to sing songs to my brothers and me before bed. I have one particular memory of him singing Joni Mitchell’s ‘Big Yellow Taxi’. The message in the song really reached me, even as a really young boy. This really instilled a love of music in me from a young age. 

What motivates or influences you in your quest to make great music? My greatest motivation to make music is my innate desire to create in other people the amazing feelings I get when I experience good music. Obviously, there’s a selfish side to making music also, but for me I believe it comes second to the first one. 

What are your biggest goals you hope to accomplish as an artist? 

I keep my goals quite close to my chest, actually. But one of them is to create an album that has a significant cultural impact; an album that changes things. Certainly easier said than done, especially in today’s saturated music market, but I believe there will always be more to say. 

Success, what is the secret to it?

I’ve been really fortunate to have some great successes in the past year or two. When I analyse those successes, the thing that seems common to all of them is a genuine belief that it’s possible. We as humans are riddled with insecurities, myself included, but sometimes the most powerful thing you can do to help yourself is find a way to truly believe in the value of your contribution to this world.
