The Canterbury based  18 year old singer song writer has recently released debut album More Than Boys , which is described as “a riff- layered rite of passage CD”.  The Daily Telegraph proclaimed it as ““An affecting and highly promising debut album” where Properganda noted of the singer and the album that “A young man enjoying some notable patronage – a debut album of surprising maturity and a compelling listen”.

Despite his age, he has already supported the likes of Steve Knightley, Lucy Ward and Boo Hewerdine and  is gigging hard throughout the summer with a decent selection of festival bookings already.

Yet another opportunity to catch a rising star in the making at Hootananny.
