He has been steadily working hard on cultivating a sound that is all his own, biding his time and keeping things low-key in order to take a measured approach to what he does. A refreshing outlook in an age where so many artists want instant gratification. Over the last two years Mona Vale has allowed his sound to evolve naturally, distilling the core elements - songwriting and emotive melodies – to create a deep refined aesthetic that is truly representative of his sonic identity.
This is evident in his first release ‘Not Given Up’ on Cherry House Records, premiered by Pete Tong on Radio 1 as part of his ‘Eclectic Selections’, Proving that taking the measured approach was worthwhile. Now preparing for a promising year ahead, Mona Vale’s sights are set high with plans to create a live show to accompany his music and several releases already in the pipeline.
