ongoing. I’m always open to new projects and colaborations, so if anyone has any ideas please contact me.
Have you wrote a song for anybody famous
No , not yet, but you never know who you might meet, or who might see your work.
How long did it take to write the song ‘Debut’
“Probably a month from conception to finish. I tend to sing ideas into the recorder on my phone then after i’ve recorded a few of them
i review what i have and try to make a coherent song out of them.
What inspired you to write this particular song
“It was an article i saw online about artists trying to make it in the music industry and taking a long time to get a foot in the door.
It sparked the idea”.
