Triangle

When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I wrote my first song when I was four years old. I was in the bathtub and there was rain pitter pattering on the tin roof above. It went like this, “Hear the rain falling down on the roof / the rain always says the same thing / it says, ‘how do you do?’ and ‘what is your name?’ / hello rain.” At the time I was thinking I might be a fireman, but after that first song I was hooked.

How would you describe your music?

I like to call it “Post Dylan/Pre Apocalypse”

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’ve recently signed with Integrity Records, a fabulous little indie label. They are set to release the new record, Machineteeth in the Spring. I’ve been busy working on artwork and other things that aren’t actually music. I hand-printed all the album jackets in my basement and my lovely artist girlfriend has just helped me produce a music video for the latest single Digital Space which I’m extremely proud of. In the coming months, look out for the release of the record as well as appearances at the End of the Road Festival and across the UK.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

Stephen Hawking. I’m just a huge fan.

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

The Beach Boys, Endless Summer. Come on, what else could sound better on a desert island?
