Born while under extreme pressure to find a way to express my creativity in a positive manner, rather than thrashing on my guitar till I wished the wall would open up and swallow me whole! It occurred to me even though I wasn’t making any great leaps to carry on what I failed at doing previously, which was to write as much as I could. From the countryside around Devon to jotting down my angst or whilst stuck in a hellish traffic jams on the M25!!
First and foremost I became a prolific non offensive rapper why? Only god knows!!! It took some time but I honed my talent in being able to waffle without people realizing that it was waffle they were reading! I never would have dreamed that all my aimless writing would lead somewhere as prestigious like this. I feel very privileged as I’m sure a lot of artists do and every song I write if I don’t feel like it is giving enough to the casual listener, I will bin it!!! But fear not these days all my songs are written on the computer, because my mind changes so much and also copy and paste is a great tool when used properly!!
It was never going to be easy but at least I have a name to be berated or celebrated with which is all I really wanted from the off!!
To those of you who believe your time will never come I just got say believe in what you’re doing, never give up, don’t sell yourself short and if you do sell out make sure it’s enough money for a comfortable retirement for you and the people who have stood by you whether it’s the strongest nastiest icy cold wind or the coolest summer breeze!!!!
