You recently released a song titled Dreamscapes, which we reviewed. What can you tell us about this song and where can it be purchased?

Thanks again for taking the time to review it! With the accompanying video, I like to think of this song as a surreal, rock-induced journey. It’s available to stream in all the usual places.

Has the pandemic hindered your work much?

Actually for me, not really. If anything it’s helped me to focus more when composing.

What is the writing and recording process like for you?

It varies from song to song, but I usually work on the melody first. Everything else tends to come after that.

Have you started writing for a future EP/album yet?

I have and I’m working towards releasing an album towards the end of the year.

Do you plan to release any more singles in the near future?

Yes and quite soon.

Whereabouts are you based and what is the local music scene like?

I’m in Melbourne, Australia. There’s a big focus on the live music scene now that the lockdowns are over. Plus, there is a very healthy electronic scene here in Australia too.

What/who influences you most as an artist? What have you been listening to recently?

A surprising influence on Dreamscapes was Pink Floyd, after I spoke to a friend. In general, most of my music is influenced by acts such as Future Sound of London and Boards of Canada. My playlist is all over the place at the moment – I actually have a few movie and video game soundtracks on there.

Do you have any tour dates lined up?

Not at the moment, but we’ll see what happens in the future.

What can people expect from one of your shows and why should people come and see you perform live?

If I take this live, I’d be aiming for something people haven’t heard before.

Any last words for the fans?

Knowing you are out there liking what I do is one of the main reasons I keep going. Thank you.
