“I consciously fell in love with music around the age of six, when I was given a Fisher-Price record player for my birthday and an accompanying record of Kool & The Gangs hit single, “Celebration”. It was love at first listen. I was completely smitten by deep, funky, soulful music and it’s been my lifes passion ever since.”
