He takes lyrical inspiration from an unusual upbringing, moving from place to place and being the youngest of a huge family despite been the only Child between his Parents – he has an incredible 15 siblings, many of whom he only met at his father’s funeral. His are not tales you hear from your run of the mill acoustic bleeding heart…
