I met Adée whilst in Sweden on tour with Elle Exxe last year. We clicked straight away, talking about her and my influences from the Hip Hop world. I talked to her about how her delivery reminded me of Vic Mensa and the content was very Noname-esque. It was refreshing to come across someone who got what I was talking about in ideas, and was very gracious about the fact I was slightly deafened by the venue’s sound system and the fact I’d had something like four hours of sleep the night before.Read More
Sean and I go way back. Like, all the way back to last summer, on tour with Sarah Darling traversing the British Country festival scene. We got on well from the outset; him impressing me with his yoga-like sleeping position in the van, me impressing him with my knowledge of Tom Cruise and Scientology.Read More
In my first stint in Oz, all the time I hung out with my friend Arow, I never met her boyfriend Chris - one half of Headlines. So, it was weird to stand outside of Horse Bazaar again on my second Oz adventure, waiting for her to appear, only for this guy to precede her, staring at me like he knew me from a different life.

Not long after I got back from Sweden - like a couple hours or so - I was asked by Tommy, Fatai’s man with a plan for her European-based stuff, to cover her gig at The Lexington later that week. I’d listened to a few tracks before I got to the venue, but didn’t really know much about Fatai herself.Read More
So, I was gonna do your typical breakdown of the whole tour. Date by date, blow by blow, but it sounded boring to me, so it’d be boring to anyone reading it.
Not that the tour was a bore. Far from it.Read More
I had a lot of fun in Sweden. Not a lot of sleep, but a lot of fun. I met a lot of nice people, bumped into someone I knew from university, and launched Underdog Media on my 27th birthday, on a bus from Stockholm to Örebro after staying up until 4am the night before double-checking every link and detail of the site and showreel.Read More
I met the Rack Jones boys pretty early on in 2018, when my friend Taylor asked if I wanted to shoot their EP Launch with him. It was a sell-out gig not far from where I was living in Melbourne at the time, and in the Worker’s Club, a venue I’d been by a few times and never actually gone in.Read More
