Musically we always listened to a mixed range of music from the faces to David Bowie to get though the troubles of a working lifestyle. My style comes from 70’s films to watching 70s top of pops with my dad. I was always drawn to folk music. The sound and quality, it felt so personal and takes you on a adventure. John Denver being my main drive. I had so much emotional build up and wanted to express my love for the earth, life and nature. So I picked up a guitar the age of 15 and started practicing everyday.
