If Nick Cave, Josh Ritter, Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Thom Yorke all got together and somehow managed to conceive an illegitimate lovechild, I would want it to be my music.

Biography

I got my first guitar when I was about 16 and my first song was born shortly after that. There's nothing flashy or showy about what I write, it's just honest and comes from the deepest depths of my wee self! I love how melody and rhyme can fortify a simple bunch of words and let them become something so amazingly powerful that they can stop you in your tracks or knock you right on your arse! I have been influenced by life, by love, by fear and confusion, happiness, television, drinking with amusing people, listening, watching, where I'm from, what I've done and what I hope to do in the future. That's it really! x
