Music is my healing and cheaper than therapy!
It’s been a huge part of my life growing up my parents went round to different churches singing as a duo, my Father would play the guitar and sing my Mother would sing.
One of my main musical inspirations is Erykah Badu she an amazing artist. In terms of songwriting I tend to draw from personal experience, my surroundings and the experiences of others.
Mainly gospel music and chart music.
Be Faithful – Fatman Scoop
Patterns, Yates or Walkabout or a pub crawl with my friends in Brighton of course.
I love watching old-fashioned musicals with my Mother such as Gypsy, High Society, Calamity Jane to name a few.
I have a obsession with unicorn related anything.
It will be a mixture of my own music and music from other artists. I am quite eclectic from Erykah Badu to Alice in Chains so the playlist will be based on mood. The genres will be a mix of neo-soul, ambient, electronica, rock, grunge, metal etc.
