From his small home studio on the Pennine moors he uses vocals, piano, synths & a whole lot of imagination to craft his emotive & nostalgic songs. Along with releasing 2 critically acclaimed albums, several EPs & official remixes for Yazoo & Erasure, he’s also gained a reputation for his inventive cover versions of classic songs by some of his favourite artists including Kate Bush, Eurythmics, Madonna, Depeche Mode, Björk, Tori Amos & Pet Shop Boys.
His upcoming 80s-inspired album 'WOLF HOURS' is preceded by the singles 'Hearts', 'Not Afraid' & 'The Darkest Summer', each with a music video inspired by retro movie dream sequences, set at different points in time.
'Neon Lines' a brand new song for 2021 (via 1981) is a collaboration with Costa Rican artist Walter Alienson. After meeting in an online synthwave group, the pair joined forces remotely to create this irresistibly nostalgic synth-pop song that explores a sense of disconnection from the modern world & a yearning for the comfort & simplicity of the past. Furthermore, the song celebrates how retrowave music brings like-minded people from all over the world together in their shared love of all things 80s... “we dream tonight in neon lines”.
