Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Hopefully, a few albums released and a couple of sold-out world tours.
What is your ideal Sunday?
Sleeping in and watching football (I support Chelsea)
Dream brand to work with?
Serge DeNimes ;)
How did you get into music?
Basically my sister had the music production software Logic and never used it! So I took it and put it on my laptop and started producing when I was about 15. I spent years just making music in my bedroom and focusing and improving. I didn’t really know where it was all heading though or how to get vocalists on my instrumentals - so I decided to try and sing myself. That was about 18 months ago.
Who is your idol in the music industry?
I have a couple, Justin Bieber was definitely my first major inspiration. It was his album in 2015 "Purpose" that actually made me start making music properly. Also for me Mura Masa and Flume are huge huge inspirations, I absolutely love them.
What is your life motto?
Sk8 tight and be polite
What does jewellery mean to you?
I love jewellery because I feel like it helps get across who I am as an artist and communicate my sense of style. Also, I just like how it looks :)
A pair of Levi's.
A song that describes you?
Love$ick - mura masa (ft. A$AP ROCKY)
Greatest song of all time?
Any Adam Rom song!!!
Favourite piece from Serge?
I think it has got to be the Silver Vitruvian Ring.
What was the first song you wrote and what was the inspiration behind it?
The first song I properly wrote was actually my first single Obvious. I’d only been singing for about a year max at that point and hadn’t really been in with songwriters before - but that was one of the first sessions (if not the first) my management put me in and it came out pretty well:)
Did you find your passion for music through playing instruments?
Yeah for me its definitely a huge thing, me being able to go and play the guitar or a piano or whatever it is allows me to just randomly play stuff and become inspired. Musicality forms the basis of my music even when it gets quite poppy or sometimes goes more to the left, there’s always some musicality thrown in there.
