Can you tell me when you first took an interest in music? What inspired you, and how did you begin creating your own music? 

I’ve always loved music. I remember being on long car journeys as a child, listening to songs on the radio in the back and sort of making up bits of music in my head to go with the song. I often imagined lead guitar parts that ought to be in songs, long before I could play lead guitar or adding my own backing vocals. I still can’t help myself doing that in fact! The first song I wrote was about my train set, thankfully never released but I still remember the main parts. Once I started playing a few chords on the guitar, more songs just started flowing out.

I prefer really to leave that to others…
