Describe your sound in your own words.
Quiet bit. Building slowly. LOUD BIT. CYMBAL CRASH. Quiet bit again. LOUDER THAN BEFORE. Double chorus to end.
How did you start performing?
I walked over to the piano and started pressing random keys until I found a combination I liked. Still the method I use today.
What are your musical influences?
Studio One reggae. And only Studio One reggae.
What's your biggest vice?
Using incorrect grammar on purpose.
What's in your festival survival kit?
A guitar, a change of shoes (dancing shoes vs. "sensible"), those fizzy vitamin C tablets (for prevention of scurvy), gaffer tape.
What's your musical guilty pleasure?
I don't really feel guilty about music at all - that seems like a silly thing to do. If I was going to feel guilty about anything it'd be accidentally boiling my sisters goldfish by putting him on the window in direct sunlight so he could "have a nice view". I didn't derive pleasure from that though, so it probably doesn't count.
Beatles or Stones?
The Beatles all the way.
What's the craziest thing you've seen or experienced while on tour?
Belgium. In a good way.
