To anyone new to your music, name 3 words that best describe your sound.
Soundscape, Ambient, Folk
What made you decide that music is the right path for you?
Music chose me really. I picked up the guitar at 16 by chance when my dads best friend left a guitar with me for the week. Life just isn’t the same without having an instrument close by.
What’s your writing process like? Do you write the music or lyrics first?
I generally write the music first or find a riff that pricks my ears on guitar or piano. If I get that, then I know the melody will find itself them Elaine adds Cello gold to it.
Do you prefer performing live or recording, and why?
Definitely performing live, the performance is a one off then it’s gone, that’s pretty spiritual to me
What’s in store for you for the rest of the year? We have 2 new Eps in the pipeline.
The next one is called ‘The Fox and the Lie’.
