Exposed Vocals: So tell us your story. Where did you grow up? What made you decide to become an artist?
I grew up in the a place called Abersychan in South Wales and I discovered music at around 5/6 playing piano for about four years then picked up the guitar at 15. I studied music in college and found a real passion for songwriting and composition. Back then it was in a band format and went to university, which changed my perception of music and decided to produce and record my own music. I then became a music lecturer and I am now a course leader. I ran a studio for a four years and now solely produce and release my own music.
