Live Set Up:
When playing live, the equipment in my set up is vast. I use analogue pre-amps and compressors to have a strong ground signal for my vocals. This signal then goes through my digital effects, which are then used with my UAD Apollo Twin sound card. From there it goes to another sound card to mix it in the final mastering computer.

Hobbies & Interests:
Outside of music, I love to cook. I love experimenting with recipes that don’t include meat or dairy. I’m also a massive football fan but I’d even go as far to say it’s an ‘obsession’ of mine.
