Hackney born and bred. My sound started from grime as that's when I started creating music but since then I've been inspired mostly by rap, hip hop, trave wave, dancehall R&B. My creations are often based on my mood and feelings at the time.

Being played on the national radio is one of my highlights to date. It was actually for my latest single release "Move Out the Way". It was reassuring that I'm capable of reaching heights I expect for myself.
