WHO OR WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START SINGING?
I went through a rather large Michael Jackson obsession when I was 10, I was absolutely infatuated with his music and his performance, I started getting singing lessons because I wanted to be able to sing his songs.
FIVE MUSICIANS/BANDS YOU ADMIRE?
Arctic Monkeys; The Neighbourhood; The 1975; John Mayer; LANY
HOW DO YOU PREPARE FOR A GIG?
Usually I just drink an excessive amount of water and perform an annoying amount of sirens in public forums.
MOST EMBARRASSING MOMENT ON STAGE?
Probably not my most embarrassing moment, however, during the 60 four’s first ever gig I tried to count the audience into the final chorus of ‘Daydream Believer’ with a simple “… 1, 2, 3, 4” Naturally I failed miserably, and shouted “2! 3!” extremely out of time. To this day this is still a commonly discussed topic at rehearsal.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE (OR OTHERWISE) ABOUT THE 60 FOUR MEMBERS?
I really enjoy the banter we have at rehearsal as I am rarely the punching bag and often walk away un-scathed.
