Hello Matt, How are you?
Great thanks. In LA at the moment, playing some shows and writing some songs. Getting burnt.

What have you been up to of late then?
Spending a lot of time in the studio.

Were You Always interested inmusic or was there ever anything else your wanted to be?
Yeah music was always a part of my life. I have no idea what I’d be doing without it.

What’s Your creative process like?
I try to let the subconscious take the lead as much as possible. I like to come up with melodies and then make sense of them.

Your last EP was lyrically quite sinister and emotional. Was there a personal experience behind it?
Always. Even if I’m writing songs about other people, my only understanding of their pain and happiness comes from my own experiences.

Do You See your music now as very different from your previous work or is it more of a continuous process?
Its 100% a continuous process. If it seems like there are jumps between old material and new material then trust me there’s a lot of unheard songs that bridge the gap. I’m constantly trying to develop and push my artistic boundaries.

What can we expect from the debut full length? Fairly similar in sound to the EP?
The EP is definitely a good starting point for the album. There are lots of elements I will keep and a few I’ll leave behind. I’m thinking about Album 1, working towards it all the time. Hopefully I’ll put one out in 2016, but I have to get it right first.

Recently there’s been quite a lot of crossover with songy type songs and electronic music. Why do you think that this crossover is blowing up?
It definitely connects with me, and I suppose it connects with a lot of other people.

Other than making a living with your music, what do you hope to add to the musical landscape?
I just want to be a part of it, others can decide if I add anything to it.

If you could collab with any artist, living or dead, who would it be?
Etta James

If you could tame any animal, and ride it / have it as a companion… what animal would it be?
Rainicorn

If you were bleeding out and could listen to only one song while you lay there gazing at the sky, what would it be?
Samson – Regina Spektor

Favorite one-hit wonder song from the 90’s?
Save Tonight – Eagle Eye Cherry

What are 3 albums you can’t live without?
The Stranger – Billy Joel
For Emma, Forever Ago – Bon Iver
Moondance – Van Morrison

What are You hungry for?
Fish Tacos
