So whilst also working long hours at the docks, I started to teach myself how to play the ukulele. Taking the instrument to work with me in my backpack, I could get some essential practice whenever there was any sort of downtime, or when on lunch breaks.
After quickly getting bored of playing to myself, I decided I had enough confidence to take my new-found skills further afield; at first I was playing at local open-mic nights, and from there soon also pubs, festivals and weddings.
After watching the likes of Ed Sheeran be able to create an entire full band experience at his feet with the helpful use of a loop station, I bought myself one too.
And now I wouldn’t be without it.
I've recently been featured on BBC Radio 4 to talk about my songwriting.
