I write when I’m inspired. I find listening to new music inspires me, among other things. It can be any genre, actually, so long as it motivates me to create. Then, once I’m in that “zone”, I tend to begin by messing around loosely with riffs on the guitar. When I happen upon something that may have potential, I build around it as best I can (verse, bridge, chorus, drums, vox etc.). The hardest point is at the end of this process, when there’s the bones of a song that simply will not make the cut and has to get the chop. I find it difficult to cut songs and tend to get sentimental quickly!
I would describe my music as the absolute sonic version of myself! I love hard, heavy riffs and drums, raw and genuine vocals and lyrics. It’s the type of music I’ve grown up with, that’s shaped me into who I am, surrounded me with the friends I have today. And I’m still discovering amazing bands and records out there, from the past and present.
