I have always had something to do with music. I've been quite fortunate in my upbringing- Dad was a Guitarist and Mum... liked Abba? But on a serious level i've grown up listening to lots of different types of music. I've always loved acoustic music, listening to Cash or Dylan. When I went to secondary school I got into rap and rock music. I still to this day love grime music and hip-hop, i think the construction of lyrics is amazing. I also don't know how many people will bother to read this, it seems a really futile activity. I got into "indie" music aswell. I have toured parts of Europe with a Jazz Orchestra playing Saxaphone (badly) and Singing (mediocrely).
