“There are so many aspects of the music industry that I have fallen in love with. The people you meet and being surrounded by artists doing what they love is very special. The different genres of music and the changing elements that they bring, the fact that it’s an international industry with so many different voices, opinions and sounds, and the way that it’s ever changing. When I started working in music, I really felt accepted for being me and I love that being unique is celebrated.
If I could change one thing about the music industry right now, it would be for people to reconnect with the soul of music and for the real reason it exists. The music business has become more statistic, ‘like’ and hit driven than ever before. Songs are getting shorter to get more stats on the streamers and there are more and more tactics being used to get people to listen.”

“I was a raver. We used to get in the car on a Friday night and drive to different cities across the UK to hit different clubs. Funky House was my vibe, it brought people together and there was a real sense of unity on the dance floor. It was before social media so much of it wasn’t documented unless someone had their camera with them or you found pictures of yourself on dontstayin.com hahaha – it was a brilliant time for music.”
