Q:Apart from Guitar do you play any other instruments?
A:In year 3 I started learning violin…but I don’t think that really counts!
Q:What Genre of music do you like playing?

Q:If you could dabble in another genre of music, what would it be?
A:At the moment I am more folky/country so I wouldn’t mind adding a twist of pop to that.

Q:What hidden talents do you have?

Q:Do you enjoy writing music and/or lyrics?
A:I love it! It’s such a good way of getting out how you are feeling. If I can put a situation into a song then it’s like a line is drawn and I can move on because the emotions are captured in that song. Sometimes I write about other peoples experiences though and that is just as enjoyable.
