Bio

hey my new song 'familiar' is out 26/6

''Familiar' came about while I was at work and was reading the Werribee newspaper. There was a pretty tragic story about a family and dementia that really stuck with me. My grandmother had passed away recently, who suffered from dementia, so I kinda took from that article and my own situation. Sprinkle a little acoustic guitar, violin and slide guitar and badabing badaboom 'Familiar' was finished.
