Oceans EP was mostly recorded in London in the corner of my living room, except for drums and lead vocals that were recorded at City Sessions studio in Richmond, London. Bass guitar was recorded in Gibraltar. The EP was released exclusively via Pledge Music at the end of 2015 following a five month campaign. The EP was then widely released in 2016. A huge thanks to everyone who pledged for the EP making it possible. Thanks to you, we also raised £300 for Cancer Research UK.
A very special thanks to Andy Welsh, Dylan Lucas, Harriette Valarino, The Montaditos and the Nasdaq family and executive producer Paulina Instone.

Coming Home is a collaborative single with J Gusto and produced by Wh!Zzkid. Released in Sept 2014, it's most probably the song I'm most proud of.
I wrote the music in London at my mini home studio and with J being based in Gibraltar at the time, most of the demos where shared via Skype. When he laid his first lyric ideas over the music I knew this song was going to be special.
Reaching the top 20 of the iTunes UK hip hop charts the week of release (peaked at no.13) we were overwhelmed by the support the track received. I only wonder what it could have done had we been able to secure some UK radio play on the track outside of the amazing radio support from Radio Gibraltar at the time.

Sleeping On A Couch EP
Sleeping On A Couch EP was released at the end of 2008. It was my first ever commercial release and recorded using portable studio equipment in an abandoned BFBS radio station on the Rock of Gibraltar. I wrote the songs on the EP when I had just moved to London and was crashing on a friend's couch while looking for a day job and flat to rent.
The EP inspired a 'Couch Surf Tour' where I took invites to play gigs in people's living rooms. The tour saw me play various dates around the UK as well as Austria, France, Italy, Germany and the USA.
