Describe your sound in 3 words
Smooth, romantic, raw
Tell us a few things about your new song “Downtown BA”. What is the main idea behind it?
I wrote Downtown BA after spending time living in Buenos Aires. The song is a love letter to the city (one of my favorite places in the world), as well as a story of heartbreak and parting ways with someone special as a result of having to return home.
Which is your most personal and honest lyric?
A very personal lyric to me is from a song I wrote about growing up called ‘Starting to see’. The lyric is: “I’m not half the man I’m supposed to be and now that I’m older, I’m starting to see”
Artists and people who have influenced and inspired you?
I was hugely influenced by Elvis as a young kid and so I feel he was a big inspiration to me to start music. Since then, artists who have influenced my sound include Guitarricadelafuente, The Gypsy Kings, Damien Rice, and John Mayer.
What would be your dream performance venue?
would definitely have to be playing at Wembley, that was always a dream of mine growing up!
What was the best film you have watched during the quarantine?
‘Three Idiots’ a Bollywood movie is definitely one of the most enjoyable films I have watched recently! You’ll have to dedicate an afternoon to it though, it’s very long!
What would you say is your biggest vice?
I definitely drink way too much Coffee! But I call it “embracing my Colombian heritage”
