:: What track changed your life ::
Too many to mention really.

:: What is your favourite Album ::
I have a few classic fav’s like Marvin Gayes ‘I Want You’ but I prefer to listen to new stuff as often as possible.

:: Name a band or artist we should checkout ::
Tall Black Guy. He’s my fav producer right now.

:: Favourite Quote ::

:: When on tour, you can’t live without ::
The occasional decent meal and eye masks, headphones and a neck pillow. Sleeping on the plane and in the van is impossible without them.

:: When you think of Australia, you think ::
Heat, good food, Coopers Sparkling Ale, Beaches, Nick Cave, good stand up comedy, great music festivals.

:: Worst thing to happen to music is ::
Commercial radio.
