How have you been keeping busy during Lockdown?
So far throughout lockdown I have kept busy by focusing on finishing university, recording and releasing my latest single ‘So High’ and binging through Netflix.

What’s the biggest thing you miss from not being in Lockdown?
Without a doubt the biggest thing I miss from not being in Lockdown is seeing my dog, gigs and clubs would be a close second.

What is the first thing you’re going to do when Lockdown is over?
Probably the first thing I’ll do after lockdown is grab a drink with some mates.

What’s the biggest thing you’ve learned from being in Lockdown?
The biggest thing I’ve learned from lockdown is that although it’s been refreshing to have a break from everything, it just makes it hit home how amazing our freedom is in today’s world, almost as a reminder to never take it for granted.

Paramore or Evanescene?
Such a tough question but I’m gonna have to go with Paramore.
