What Do You Enjoy Most About Being A Musician?
Being in flow state is the best thing. Studies have shown that flow state has lots of positive effects on the brain. Knowing you’ve created something from nothing, or from a spark of inspiration is an amazing thing.
Which Track Of Yours Means The Most To You?
At the moment it’s probably a track called ‘Click Click Clack’. It’s unreleased at the moment but will be out soon. The track is about being at one with the Universe and the struggles of trying to do what you love amidst a whole heap of obstacles including your own self.
The First-Ever Gig You Played, Can You Remember It? How Was It?
I think it was a DJ competition in my current hometown, I must have been around 14 or 15 years old. I remember just doing my thing and not really thinking much of it. There was a good crowd reaction with a particular tune I played, then I realised I came second place which I really wasn’t expecting!
What Do You Think Is The Key To Success As A Musician?
Determination. You need to be able to be patient and keep honing your craft and continuously push forward. You also need to take the knock backs and be able to bounce back full of life.
If You Wasn’t A Musician, What Job Would You Be Doing?
I actually work part time in Financial Services, so I guess that?! But to be honest if I had a choice it would probably be something creative like Art or Graphic Design. I had a love for drawing from young, pencil art was my thing!
