Hi guys! I you’re all having a good start to the week. Lots of you message me asking what my average studio day is like. Well starting this week, I’m going to try and give you a little more insight into just that a little more regularly! For example, I’ve been working on a soundtrack for a movie today in which I’m not allowed to use any instruments other than my voice, hands and feet. Quite the challenge. It’s been the most fun I’ve had in ages! Reading through a script and trying to musically portray the emotion of a scene lights up parts of my brain I didn’t even know I existed. What kind of scene could you imagine this being in?
Oil & Water || The Sun is Also a Star 🎥 || Out May 17th ——————————————- Feeling incredibly humbled to have my tune ‘Oil & Water’ play a part in this insightful movie. Still boggles my tiny little mind that something I created on a Sunday afternoon quite literally in my pyjamas has travelled this far and ended up as one of the soundscapes to something as beautiful as this. Counting my blessings 🙏🏽 ——————————————— #iamrationale #thesunisalsoastar #rationale #warnerbrospictures #warnerbros #metrogoldwynmayer #yarashahidi #seanlew
Hi guys, I hope you’re all doing well and surviving January! This month is always a bit of a blur for me and most people I know. Feeling the pinch after more than likely spending way too much money during Xmas and generally feeling a bit ‘meh’. I wrote ‘Kindred’ at the begging of last year and released it last month on my third EP. It was Inspired by a friend who’d very recently lost someone close. Before sitting down to write it, I remember thinking about people I loved who were no longer here. How I wished I could have taken that extra picture, made a little more time or loved them a little harder. We all lose people close to us at some point. It’s the one undeniable inevitability. However, one thing I know for certain is that everyone we lose would want us to live our lives like we meant it. With that in mind, I recorded this acoustic version of ‘Kindred’ and since then, I’ve been pouring my efforts into making time for family and friends. Looking after myself more and wallowing less in the unpredictable tides & woes of life. Instead, I’ve been living the crap out of it! (I don’t think that’s a thing but let’s make it a thing for arguments sakes). I feel incredibly thankful for each day of solid ground beneath my feet. After all... ‘there are no promises of tomorrow for you and me’. Enjoy!
Hey folks, I hope you’re all having a good xmas break! I did an interview and shoot with day one supporters THE RADICAL for their December issue. It’s definitely one of the most honest conversations I’ve had about music and creativity to date.

All lot of artists might not tell you this but the time spent between ones last release and writing the next can be some scary shit. Especially in an era in which we seem to consume music faster than a bag of popcorn. I spent just under a year creating the High Hopes EP I released a couple of weeks ago & whilst I was doing just that you guys were still fully supporting. Thank you for that. Here’s to more love and music in 2019 ♥️

M E N T A L H E A L T H People often ask me about what it’s like making music professionally. That usually translates as ‘is it as awesome as it seems when you’re on stage or as euphoric as it sounds on record doing this as a full time job’? Yes and no. Behind the digital self promo, i’m just a human being and much like anyone who does any kind if job, there are days when I wonder what the hell i’m doing. Of-course, the highs of being a creative are incredible but much like anything in life, the journey can be filled with peaks and troughs that as history has shown countless times it can very easily reap havoc on ones mind.

Remember ‘Oil & Water’ from my debut album? A little while ago my friend Sean told me he was working on this & I knew it would good but this....? This is above and beyond special. You’re a GENIUS 🙏🏽 The way you’ve interpreted the words I penned about something so difficult is everything that I love about making music.
