Live Show Ritual:
I always compulsively wash my hands before touching my guitar. Then I get together with the band and we have a little sports style hype up moment. Or if I’m playing solo I just meditate and get in the zone.
Favourite local artist: The Pick Brothers Band
EP or LP? LP. Singles and short EPs are like reading the Coles Notes instead of reading the whole book.
Early bird or night owl? Night time is the right time.
Road or studio? Studio then road, rinse and repeat. But if I had to choose only one… Road.
Any (online) shows or albums coming up?
Working on the next album. Just released Three, but moving onto “Four” now.
