ARTIST/PRODUCER/WRITER/ACTOR

I'm a creator and all I want to do is see others awaken their unapologetic creativity.

I have a strong connection and love for the arts; my quest began at the age of 9 while performing for an EMI france released compilation album.

Since then I haven't looked back. I fell in love with the art of storytelling through lyricism whilst performing musical theatre, as Young Simba in the Westend's The Lion King and Scipio in Trevor Nunnes: Porgy and Bess.  

Cleverly crafted songs, strong harmonic vocals, live instruments and crowd awe, pulled me into a world I knew I was destined to explore.

I spent many years interrogating my craft and developing my passion. I attended CONEL college and Hertfordshire university where I studied and got a BSc(Hons) in Music Technology

I've toured Accra,Ghana and The U.K performing my own songs. Meeting artists and creatives along the way and collaborating on projects.

I've worked on and facilitated youth creative projects at The Roundhouse, Battersea Arts Centre and Wac Arts College.

It's now my mission to work with creatives and unlock their full potential.

We're not only making music, we're making a legacy.
