Rock solid, at times short and spiky, at times wildly reverberating indie rock songs with passionate, critical, socially committed lyrics. This is the stock-in-trade of this 23-year-old singer-songwriter from North Shields, just east of the city of Newcastle in the northeast of England. With his exceptional class and impressive vocals, he has already been lauded as a Critic’s Choice at the Brit Awards and earned a hot spot on the BBC’s prestigious Sound Of 2018 list. His biggest hero is Springsteen, and he brings together elements of The Strokes, The Killers and War On Drugs.
