Why do you live in London?
I was born in Homerton and so I grew up here. London is kinda all I know, it’s where music really began for me.

What are your go-to food places?
Any chicken shop in east London, haha. I’m like the chicken connoisseur.

It looks like winter’s here. What’s the best way to get through these months?
I’m like a hermit so being at home in my flat in Hackney is my best way of getting through the winter months.

Talk us through a great London day.
I would say go and see the sights like Box Park in Shoreditch or go to the open mic nights at The Troy Bar in Hoxton. The museums are really good too and there’s the National Gallery and Whitechapel Gallery. Even seeing a gig would be really cool in London: I’m actually going to see Tank and the Bangas at the Islington Assembly Hall in December – they are amazing!!

Do you have any favourite outdoor space?
I love any park in the summer – London Fields, Haggerston and Stratford Parks are mostly where I’m at.

If you could live anywhere in London where would it be?
Where I am now, in Hackney. East London is where my heart is and always will be!

What’s the worst thing about London?
The night life is changing a lot. Many places I used to go to when I was younger like the Joiners Arms, The Astoria, Plastic People and the Rising Tide youth centre have closed down, which is a shame, and prices are going up.

Do you have any favourite venues?
I would say The Sebright Arms, where I’m doing my EP launch on November 29th, and Birthdays in Dalston.

Does living here influence the music you write?
One million percent!! I’ve always lived here so I’ve experienced love, loss and a lot of happy memories, which are all the things I write about. I don’t really know what type of person I would be if I wasn’t from here.

How would you advise someone to get the most out of London?
Just to be as open as you can and attend any events happening like gigs or festivals. It’s definitely an experience you can’t miss!
