The rising star who is predicted for success, talks to MarkMeets about his favourite venues to perform at, dream collaborations and more as we get to know him.

What kind of music are you listening to at the moment?
At the moment I’m into an array of artists and genres. I think my top 3 would be Jack White (White Stripes, The Raconteurs and Jack White himself), The intermission project and Keaton Henson. 

What would people find out about you from a reality documentary?

– Although I’m from the North, my accent is far from Northern.

– I’m extremely weird when it comes to my sense of humour.

– I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie when I get the chance.
Where are the best venues you have performed at (In The UK)– Sanctum Soho hotel, London.
– Blues bar Harrogate
– George IV (Chiswick)

Is there anyone you would love to work with?I always love working with other artists, it’s a great way to create something new out of one another individual sounds. The people I would most like to work with would be:
– Willy Mason
– Superfood
– Die Antwoord
– Paper Aeroplanes
How do you relax? I meditate almost everyday, not the crossed feet humming stuff, it’s a much more subconscious process in which a click track synchronises with your brain frequency to calm you down. (Silva method)
