My Music Sounds Like

Don't have a sound yet but am experimenting with soul, blues, jazz, indie, folk, country & rnb.

In My Other Life I ...

Freelance as an actor & dancer and casually work in an Aboriginal community controlled health service. When not working or looking for work to pay the bills I am cleaning the house, spending time with family either at home or at the pub for trivia night, chillin with mates watching stupid and/or funny videos on YouTube.
