I was born at the QE2 hospital in Welwyn Garden City. The nurses said I was the most beautiful baby that they had ever seen – not sure what happened there! I grew up playing football and hoped to one day become a footballer, but as my hair grew, my aerodynamical efficiency worsened and this debilitating ailment was the end of my footballing dreams.

 

I was part of a local singing group when I was really young, but my life in music started to blossom in Year 6, when I was cast to play Fizzy in my school’s production of Bugsy Malone. I sang my first solo in front of an audience and since then I have never been far from the stage. I spent a lot of my secondary school years singing and playing in bands and on Sundays I would play in the church band. It was at church that I learnt most of the musical theory I now use today and I will be forever thankful for that. 

 

In 2011, I started my time at the University of Birmingham and fell into The Sons of Pitches. The Sons soon became my life and I always believed that there was a future beyond uni in store for the group. And here I am now, doing what I love as a job and I couldn’t feel more blessed.
