Gently

singer North LondonWhat are you listening to right now?

Sun Kil Moon- ‘Among The Leaves’ is a great album.

How did you get into music?

Well music’s all around us isn’t it? But also my Dad was a DJ on local radio for a long while so I got exposed to a lot of music through him.

Who is the most influential person in your life?

At the moment one of my fans who is funding and supporting my music incredibly a lot at the moment is a big inspiration.

Which song do you wish you had written?

Does God exist?

We’re all divine sparks of God encased in physical bodies of earth and water. The idea is to train yourself so this higher divine spark leads the lower animal physical self. Too much of religious texts has been interpreted too literally in my view when there’s a subtler profound symbolic element of internal truths written in them as allegory.
