When did the project begin?

I started recording the Who We Are EP around April 2013, though I had a break from recording a few months due to working and saving for my permanent residency in Australia, as I am originally from England. I started work on track 5 ‘Make Believe’ – during the time I wasnt recording I wrote ‘Dance Into Another Day’ and ‘Head Over Heels’. The other songs were ready to go, with Twilight being written back in 2009 originally for my music technology course back in England. I rewrote parts and decided it was a great song to put on the EP. It stands well at track 2. The producer of the EP was Peter Renzullo who owns Scudley Records in Perth, WA. I met him through a musician friend who suggested him.

What song of yours is the one you like the most?

Definitely Head Over Heels from my ep, ‘who we are’ – There’s a link below to the song

You fell out from the sky just like a lightning bolt.
Crimson eyes, swaying hips, hurricane.
You had me at the corner of a dead end street.
No surprise, one man show, nothing to say.
Chasing your love in the summer time.
Skipping every heartbeat in the blink of an eye.
I’m head over heels for you, i’m head over heels for you, for you, for you … I followed you across a bed of roses and thorns.
Truth or dare, love affair, heads in the clouds.
No matter where we are it always feels like home.
No regrets, heaven sent, lost and found.
Sha la la la la la la…

How do you write your music?

Writing music is always different every time. I find the best songs are ones which fall out from the sky, and through me, I interperate the idea (whether how small, how big, whether it’s a melody or a title, a story …) into music. I usually mess around with chords before I come up with a melody, I end up writing the choruses firstly, and the title comes out of the lyrics for the chorus. I can then write the verses around this core idea … This can usually be the hardest part I find. Second verses get rewritten more than the first verses too.

What influences do you have?

My influences lie heavily in The Beatles tradition of songwriting. I do like The Beatles too. I also find the 80’s to be a big influence on my sound – Roxette, David Bowie, Depeche Mode, Simple Minds, Tears For Fears, Michael Jackson … although in the EP it’s more acoustic based … The sound for my next record will be more synth/keys based, more electric guitar, etc.

musicsoundrocks2 - copiaWhat´s the best experience you have had with your project?

The launch for my Ep ‘who we are’ was amazing, I had some great soloists and bands play on the night (25th July 2014). I have since started working on my debut album, while also selling the ‘who we are’ EP at gigs, busking spots … I recorded a music video for track 6 from the EP which is called Head Over Heels. A great tune to play live!

What plans do you have this year?

This year is going to be full on, working on my debut album – which at the moment is left untitled, although I will be releasing a few singles before the whole album is released. A new music video will accompany the first single, as well a brand new official website coming soon too.

Mention something you don´t like about your project.

I wish I had spent more time producing track 6 ‘Head Over Heels’ as this ended up being one of the strongest songs on the EP. I have considered re-releasing this song on my upcoming album.

Mention the biggest sacrifice you did for your project.

I think the only sacrifices I made for this Ep was recording too late, and being late for work. That’s all. Apart from that, everything ran smoothly.

What band, music project or soloist from your city do you like?

James Atles … He’s a great friend, but he has also contributed in the past to projects myself and my partner Alysha Magnum (who features on the EP) have done.

If your project was a word, what would it be?


– I answered these questions, and I was sat in front of Alysha’s Mum’s computer.
