When did you start making music?
I started when I was about 12 years old.
What were your early influences?
System of a Down, Lupe Fiasco, The Specials, Toots & The Maytals, Amy Winehouse, John Lee Hooker.
What effect did studying at BIMM have on your music?
It made me more comfortable with feedback as I got used to hearing it quite often, which is important for any developing musician.
Is there a sense of community in the Irish music scene right now?
There definitely is, it’s really quite special. The scene is incredible in Ireland and I don’t think it’s like that in most places.
What was the highlight of the year?
Knockanstockan and Other Voices, big time. Best weekends ever.
