Keys / Vocals

 

I grew up in Swaziland with a lone parent who fervently desired to make me a musician somehow, but she could not afford to buy me any instruments. She realised from a young age that I was fascinated by sounds, because I used to creatively make music through banging on tables and using other surfaces growing up. We emigrated to England at the age of 13, was introduced to music production at 16 years old, saved my school lunch money (with the help of my cousin) to buy a midi keyboard and started learning. I progressed so well that the local church I attend allowed me to play on a weekly basis and now I'm the MD (music director).

 

The Soul Thieves have helped open up another world with blues, rock and other influences that are contributing to my growth in music. I love that. For musicians who have not been playing together for a long period of time we connect so well. In the words of Big Sean "ain't nobody messing with my clique!".
