Ahhh, glad I asked.
How long have you been creating music?
About 3 years now
What drew you to the music industry?
It’s a release from everyday life and I get inspiration from making music.
I started making music alone and then I realized all the gang could jump in and we all decided to make it a thing and never have looked back.
Who are you inspired by?
My biggest inspiration would be Party Next Door, he taught me a lot about music and real life in his music.
Please explain your creative process
I sit in a dark room listening to the beat, set the scene and begin the brain storming and bang we get sparks.
Is there a hidden meaning in any of your music?
Bread No Filla states that I just want the bread not for the sandwiches but to eat.
Take Flight just began with a little shout out to a great poet from Swansea, my hometown, Dylan Thomas.

I have one coming and it’s different gravy let’s just say that for now ;)
Ahh, a mystery? Can't wait.

Take Flight over anything.
Do you work mostly solo and/or do you like to collaborate with other musicians?
I usually work both alone and with my boys.
Do you think you could get any better as a artist/band? If so, how would you achieve that? OR Have you seen growth in yourself/ band from beginning to now? If, so how? And what spurred that growth?
