How would you describe your music to the world?

Bluesy, rocky, sometimes acoustic.

WHEN DID YOU REALISE YOUR MUSICAL POTENTIAL?

I haven't yet. I'm not sure that musicians ever do.

Where do you hope to hear your music over the next 12 months?

I would love to hear my music played on more stations regularly.

Any plans to tour? Release new music?

I'm currently recording new music with hopefully a tour once the new Ep is released.

When did you take your first big step into music?

Hitting the send button to launch on iTunes.

What does it mean to you to be representing Australian music?

I'm just one artist among a lot of incredible artists that represents Australia. Australian has such a diverse range of music and all of us together make the Australian music scene.

How does your role in music contribute to your bigger picture?

Music is just one part of what I get up to. I tend to use music to help grow communities and encourage younger artists to chase their dreams, whatever they may be.

Which single moment would you look back on now that makes you proud?

Playing my first ever original gig. I still can't believe people like what I've written.

From where do you draw your inspiration to keep creating music?

Life inspires me.

What’s your dream act to support?

Janis Joplin or The Doors. Clearly neither will ever happen but you can always dream.

What’s one lesson you’ve learnt that you’d like to share with other aspiring musicians?

Listen to those around you but stay true to yourself.
