What is your single about?

My mind was on the story of a good friend who was unfairly judged in a situation which affected his life in a big way. The lyric 'you know you never fight fair' refers to the person responsible for it all, who took advantage of the situation. It's a pretty serious topic, one you wouldn't expect someone like me to come across, but like I always say, I write about anything and everything.

Where did you record this single, and who helped you out?

This song was written and recorded in Sydney on the first day I worked with Stuart Crichton. I had come into the studio with the verse lyrics and melody in mind and Stuart really grasped the vibe and started to put a base down. The song flowed pretty quickly from there.

Who’s in your band?

I'm a solo artist but when I play live I work with a bunch of insanely talented musicians. My live band/best mates at the moment consists of Thomas Healy, Scotty Pearson, Shohan Hustwick, Tamsyn Miller

Have you got any tours coming up?

Have got a few shows here and there over summer, some around surf clubs but am currently putting together a theatre tour early next year. Will let you know the dates soon as

Have you got an album coming out soon?
