The industry is not easy to make your mark on, but I’m learning all the time about how things tend to work & just applying all my focus into my own music.
Q.We met you at an open mic night in Romford, what importance do such talent finding events make?

Open mics are important because they allow musicians/singers to be able to showcase their ability in what’s already a tough industry.

So I’d like to thank every single person who’s been behind me!
Q.What’s your style of music and whose your inspiration?
JM: I have any inspirations, like James Morrison, Ed Sheeran, even iconic legends like Michael Jackson.
My style, I’m very guitar/acoustic based, but I am very excited for my own music to be out out there as I am demonstrating versatility with a few genres.
Q.What can we expect to see from you in the future?
JM: An EP of some sort, 5 tracks, potentially more tracks like a full album’s worth there’s so many tracks!
