Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
I’m wearing my heart on my sleeve in my debut EP, Riddle … in terms of concept, I think it’s an attempt at an honest portrayal of myself: a bundle of contradictions … hence the title … each song representing a different side of me … some being deeply personal, being forged from a difficult period in my life … But I hope, despite that, their appeal is universal in nature.
Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
Am on the cusp of releasing a new single, called ‘Die-hard Boarder’ (April 2019), and hope to get back in the studio in autumn 2019 with a view to release a follow-up album in early 2019.
