Love life, have fun.
I would absolutely love to collaborate and write a song with
Ellie Goulding, she’s a fantastic British artist with an incredible voice.
I’m a big fan of hers!

I think it’s every band’s dream to play the main stage at Download festival, either that or the main stage at Reading & Leeds.

Taking Back Sunday, The 1975, Nirvana, Letlive, Architects and Circa Survive
Song that changed your life or made you want to go into music…
I was a massive H.I.M fan growing up. I think almost every one of there songs made me want to go into music, I some how never got bored of that band or the music. My decision to get into music is totally because of them.

“To all my friends who’d rather get high, I’ll be at ground level watching you die” – Letlive, Day 54.

“Even if the ground beneath me falls, I promise you that I will still stand taller, Stronger, then I ever have before” – Your Shining Star
Who would you most like to tour with and why?
I’d totally say Taking Back Sunday, we’re all such big fans of the band and they’re a massive influence to us. To tour with TBS would be a dream!!!
