On the 12th March, me and my band members visited Parr Street Studios in Liverpool to record my latest song, Eptir.
We met the producer, Alex Quinn and it was a running joke that he looked like Ed Sheeran! He helped bring my music to life. It’s hard to put across all of the sounds and ideas I have in my head whilst performing live, but Alex knew exactly what was needed and we went straight to work.
Of course, hearing my song piece nicely together, I had more ideas, one being of a chant. I ad-libbed over my track and had
our drummer, Tony, sing an octave lower than me.
I am absolutely over the moon with my recording, I’m proud to have top quality musicians Diz – Guitarist, Oto – Bass and Tony – percussion, to be performing along side with me, featuring on my tracks and supporting my musical growth.
Alex has done a stunning job, thank you.

This moody song that I like to classify as Dark Pop, was written earlier on this year, inspired by a couple of traumatic events last year. There were many occasions I felt suicidal and utterly defeated. This song is about a battle and strength, a battle against everything that once made me feel weak.
