How did you get your initial start in music?
- I started at 16 as a drummer in a metal band. We did alright. Toured all over Europe and the UK. Got to play the Astoria in London (RIP). Released a few albums. Did radio. It was fun.
What would be your ultimate aim in the industry?
- To be able to keep doing the music that I like and intrigues me, for as long as I can. Hopefully have people enjoy it with me too.
How long have you been writing your own music?
- I’ve been writing music in bands and as a collective since I was about 16, but actually writing my own stuff that mine about 3 years.
Who are your top three influences and why?
- I’m guessing you mean musically… Well John Bonham was a huge influence to me drumming. I loved the way he could just hold a grove and make it so powerful. Also how dynamic he was with the rest of the band. Tool are another huge influence. They can hypnotise you with their intricate rhythms and imagery. My favourite band growing up was Faith No More. I guess they would have shaped a lot of my musical taste. I still listen to them on a regular basis.
Is there anything you would like people to know about your current release?
- Just that its out there and you can get it from our website or iTunes, Amazon. What ever place you want.
Where are you based and what’s your local scene like? Any favourite venues?
- We’re based in Croydon, South London. There’s a lot of different stuff there. Lots of great bands and solo acts. We’re going to be putting on a night at a venue called Matthews Yard there soon. The night will be called The Airballoon.
Who else can you recommend from your local scene for people to have a listen to?
- Junk Yard Quire we like them. Also The Frisbys. Wake are great, and Pyramid Ship. There’s loads!
