When he first emerged from the studio, he started out by releasing a demo called ‘Disco’ on Majestic Casual which quickly spun up a fuss and amassed more than 1 million plays… he then disappeared.
After a short space of studio time and re-emerging from the silence, he released ‘Butter’ and ‘Armanio’ which both received #1’s on Hype Machine and Human Human, entering various Spotify and Apple Music playlists, as well as being featured on some of the blogosphere’s most respected outlets such as Pigeons and Planes, Clash and Line of Best Fit.
‘Armanio’ was also championed by Annie Mac, who announced the song in her New Names playlist, on her BBC Radio 1 show.
‘Attitude’ moved away from the weird quirky pop sparseness of ‘Butter’ and ‘Armanio’ and fired up an odd DIY-bedroom rock sound. It playlisted high on New Music Friday (Spotify) and was then included in the BBC Introducing Best Of playlist, by their newest fan Huw Stephens.
‘Sapphire’ was proof you could not box the songwriter/producer under one genre, channeling an 80s off-kilter ‘Phil Collins’ inspired sound, with bigger guitars and drums (drums played by Debbie Knox-Hewson; Charli XCX, Honeyblood, Nasty Cherry). The track premiered with some James Perolls styled press shots on W Magazine, a Condé Nast publication in the US.
After hitting a creative block and focusing on ‘the normal life & paying too many bills including “broken mind+heart tax”‘ , the non-conformist now returns in 2020 with upcoming singles, 2 EPs and an album/mixtape.
