Alt Pop

Where are you based? I'm based in London, even though I lived in Spain for most of my life!

What genre would you describe yourself as? Pop, rock and folk, depending on the song. I never been good at labeling music, specially when nowadays genres fusion together, which I really like.

Who is your main inspiration? I suppose that everyone would try to come up with their fave artist. In my case I'd had to say that over the years my mum has been my biggest inspiration. I never met a person as positive and strong as her.

What is your songwriting process? I actually don't have any kind of formula for the songwriting process, but what usually works out for me is coming up with a cool 10 sec vocal and/or guitar riff, and that's when it all starts. Normally the song kinda tells me what the song should be about, so I just consider myself as the middleman that puts that inspiration into words.

What is on the horizon for you? Because I had to stay home like everybody, I think that in this crazy period of  time I've been more productive than ever musically, and a few days ago I came up with the idea of releasing an EP called The Lockdown Stories.

Who would you most like to collaborate with (alive or dead)? I've always been a huge fan of Daniel John's from the Australian band Silverchair. I think he could easily be on the best music composers of all time list.

What is your ultimate goal? To be honest I never plan to long ahead. I've learnt that over time. What I do is set up small goal each day and stick to them. That's the only way to get to that ultimate goal, which would probably be to live doing what you're passionate about. No lottery can compare to that.

If you could cover any song, what would it be? Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

Tea making: milk first or last? Always last!!

Tell us your funniest joke! Why am I on a solo project? Cause 1 day my drummer said "Hey guys, I just wrote our next single"
