Tell us about the genesis of your project. How did you get to where you are now?
I’ve always been obsessed with music and film… Unhealthy… I started my career in a band in Australia Called Storm The Sky and we had a great run, charting top 40 and playing to huge crowds back home. After we split to start solo projects, I moved into my friend’s recording studio and slept on couch cushions on the floor with his guinea pig for 6 months so I could learn how to produce. I then spent every cent I had to get a visa and move to LA. I had a pretty lucky start there getting shows and management but after writing an EP, we pitched to labels the day of the lockdown haha. So safe to say luck ran out a little there. Since then I have started releasing my songs independently and have been so overwhelmed with the response. I’m excited to have started playing shows this year too and can’t wait to see everyone.

Tell us about your latest release and how it came about.
Tisci came about after only writing love songs for two years because I had found my soul mate. It serves as a middle finger to everyone who has ever slept on me. The verse starts with; “I Don’t wanna write another love song, Everybody knows that I’m in love so… It’s only right that I paint a Picasso of myself as a King without a castle”. It’s basically saying that I know that I am one of the best there is, but my future hasn’t caught up yet. A king without a castle… Also I think my music can be a little abstract expressionist at times…
What is something you would want to change in the music and entertainment industry?
TikTok being more important than talent.
