People might be surprised to learn that you have released your 5th album and you are only 21. How much has your music changed since your debut?

Over the last 5 years, it has become more mature and worldly. I was only 16 when I released my first album, so you can imagine that things have grown since then. I have studied and written with a lot of people since then, and have grown my knowledge of the songwriting craft.

Your influences are very wide-ranging. What genre would you say is most influential to you?

At the moment... R&B and Soul
