I grew up on the Gold Coast, Australia; A town brimming with life and a perfect blend of city and nature. Early on, I really got into fingerstyle guitar. When I was 18 or 19, I released my first EP; a collection of songs recorded in Garrett Kato’s basement called the Truth EP (2017). When I released it, I was alone in London, living in strange quarters, but immensely proud of myself. It was my first step as a musician. My first album Goodbye My Darling, My Darling Goodbye (2019) was written in a couple of months after meeting Mr. Thomas Higley. When we first played together, I distinctly recall his soft and delicate playing style, and how it complimented my more dominant fingerpicking patterns. We began tracking with Jared Aldam, at Machine Lab Recording Studios with 16 songs fully tracked in 3 or so days. At some point, I connected with singer-songwriter Harrison Storm. I was asked if I’d like to join him on tour. I felt pieces all falling together, and life seemed like it was in flow. Now I write music because I love to. Not because I feel like I need to. I write not to become a ‘success,’ but to express the parts of myself that I don’t even understand. The side of my self that’s a stranger to me. But I think we’re all strangers in our own ways. All of us, searching for some sort of connection to something. Some search through words, others through paint, or movement, or touch. I look for it through sound. Really, I’m just another part of it all, looking for a way to feel purpose, and meaning, in my little window frame of time.
