Q) How did you get into Music?
A) Through MySpace in 2008 I sung and recorded ‘Honest’ then I shot a video for it and I put it online as a joke lol and started promoting online and after a few weeks I won a title for most popular indie artist for 11 weeks and then after this happened I completed a few album and I collated thousands of downloads from iTunes to date, this made me believe I had something different to offer so carried on writing and recording.

Q) Who would you love to collaborate with?
A) Whiz Khalifa, ASAP Rocky and MC Kaish of So Solid Crew

A) Mature, better songs, improved vocals and more artistic and visual albums as I been working on my voice and remembering why I fell in love with music in the first place.

Q) How did you get into starting your own fashion label?
A) I have always been interested in owning my own clothing line but never knew the avenue to do so I have been trying to get people I know for advice in running one, so I met my business partner Harry Crook at a fashion show last year and now we are currently in the process of setting up a business by the end of this year. The name of the clothing is TRXPLØRD

Q) Where did the name come from for your album?
A) The name of the album comes from a series of episodes that occurred in my life from October 2011- December 2013 its about after surviving the most tragic event that occurred in someone’s life with a lonely heart but realising that life can get better, and no matter what battle you have you can have a happy life. The album is about surviving different things, falling in love, being happier in my life and healthy, and always thinking positively, I am here so I’m going to live.

Q) Who is your music idol?
A) TLC, Destiny’s Child, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Beyoncé these are the musicians music I never get bored off timeless music between them all.

Q) Have you got anything else in the pipeline?
A) After the album I might consider moulding the album into a book, about this tragic event and other situations that’s happened if I knew people will buy it then I will definitely write it.
