My dad introduced me to R&B when I was around 4, during my lifts to school he always played his favourite songs. Ever since then music has been key to my life and I did of experimenting too.

Growing up, music was all around me especially during secondary school days. From being at the back of the bus listening to T2’s Heartbroken, to randomly bussing out the migraine skank in the school corridors, it was inevitable. Many memories, dumb or not, were and are still being made and that is one of the reasons why music is important to me.

I want to write for Frequency 21 firstly, to support UK artists so I can show you people what we’re about and what you’ve been missing. Secondly, I want to expand my knowledge and understanding in music and I feel this is the best way for me.
