Can you tell us a bit about yourself and how you got into the entertainment business?
I’ve been a songwriter since I can remember. Spent several years working in London and traveling around the world to write music. It’s my favourite thing. I entered Let it Shine for the opportunity to meet one of my heros.
We all loved the talent show Let it shine. You did a great job against some strong competition. what was your highlight on the show?
So many. I loved performing with Olly Murs and of course with Take That! Gary Barlow is also a favourite of ours.
What’s he like to work with?
Very very good. Kind of just in awe of him to be honest.
Can you tell us a bit about you and what you enjoy doing socially?
I love marvel and Doctor Who and anything nerdy really.
What advice would you give to anyone wanting to get into the entertainment industry?
Work hard, be consistent and persevere. Its not always easy and sometimes you have to take the rough with the smooth.
If you could take out 4 people dead or alive for a night out in Leeds who would it be and why? where would you take them?
Elvis, Aretha Franklin, Brandon Flowers and Paloma Faith. Id take them to Fibre or Queens Court for a super gay night out!
WORK HARD, BE CONSISTENT AND PERSEVERE. ITS NOT ALWAYS EASY AND SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO TAKE THE ROUGH WITH THE SMOOTH.
