Having come through some tough times myself, I'm not ashamed to say I've gone through depression and a heap of counselling to deal with issues I had, and I wanted to show that there's another side to things, that you can come out the other side and achieve great things.

I put myself to the challenge of writing, recording, producing and putting out an EP entirely done by myself from start to finish including all music, voice and instruments, video and editing too. And here's the product of that.


Good things are possible when nothing else seems achievable.

Thanks to everyone who has got me where I am today. A lot of people have contributed greatly to who I am, where I am, and how I am.

These people have shaped me, and helped me grow as a person. Don't brush your past under the carpet. Embrace it.
