I've been heavily influenced by, and lucky to have studied with, some great recent British song writers like Tom McRae and Kathryn Williams. Further back, influences from American and Australian greats REM and Midnight Oil can still be heard. My inspiration varies but I try to avoid the cliched subjects of love and relationships, there's a whole wide world out there - this song is about going to find it.
