Defined by The Big Take-Over magazine and magazine as “the new center of world Brit pop, one of the greatest discoveries for lovers of British pop alternative rock by Oasis and brothers Noel and Liam Gallagher, of Richard Ashcroft's Verve, Damon Albarn's Blur and Gaz Coombes' Supergrass ”.
It has been reviewed as "the fruit of the eternal struggle between Liverpool, London and Manchester". He is an atypical frontman, with a calm, cheeky but never too flashy attitude on stage. He has a particular feeling with the main English artists and bands. His style is unique, his sound, melancholy in some pieces, carefree in others, is always rich in harmonies in a perfect mix of distorted and acoustic electric guitars, pianos, keyboards and strings; his voice, rarely crystalline, alternates moments of sweetness with pure energy bursts.
His songs are captivating but at the same time strong and sometimes angry, however they leave a lot of space for more reflective moments.
