Three Months staying with a host family in a village called Khandel in Rajasthan, India

When Tomoki’s album for Lost Sphear dropped in January ’18, I was actually in India at the time working on the International Citizen Service programme (ICS), so I wasn’t working on too much music for those three months. I was staying in Rajasthan with a host-family that spoke very little English working in a small village on development projects, focusing on empowering youth and women, sanitation, the Anganwadi projects which is the pre-school system which also assists mothers and pregnant women, and tackling issues such as child marriage which is very prevalent over there! I picked up a lot of Hindi whilst I was there, made a second family, and met some people I’ll stay in touch with for the rest of my life; I definitely intend on going back there again.[...] Read More

“Forgotten Memories” – Lost Sphear REMIX Album (Working with composer Tomoki Miyoshi on a Square Enix Project)

Hello!!

It’s been a little while since I’ve updated this, so I suppose I’ve got a year’s worth of catching up to do! 2018 has been the most exciting year for me on many fronts, mainly because I’ve seen more of the world and had the opportunity to work on many new musical projects.

Back in late 2017, Tomoki Miyoshi asked me if I’d like to record some vocals for a few tracks from the remix album Square Enix asked him to create as downloadable content for their game ‘Lost Sphear’ (the sequel to I Am Setsuna). I had a chance to write lyrics in Etherean, which is a language I created for literary purposes. You can hear me on Track 9: Fragmented Memories, and Track 10: The Primordial on the album ‘FORGOTTEN MEMORIES‘![...] Read More

Website Redesign & Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch 2017 – Third Place!

First things first, welcome to my new website! The old website design had some really nice features, but we wanted to modernise it a bit. Also, we’ve now implemented a blog so that I can keep you guys up to date with the latest and greatest, which I’m super stoked with. Let me know what you guys think of the new design!

And now onto the main bit of news – I placed third in this year’s Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch. For those of you that aren’t aware, Newgrounds is a website that features a large community of creators of all different backgrounds, and from different corners of the globe. There are animators, video game creators, artists, and musicians. I’ve enjoyed engaging in the audio portal over the past few years; that place is rife with hidden talent and I find it very inspiring. The Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch is a contest that sees many members of the audio portal audition to take part in rounds of head-to-heads against one another, judged by six talented musicians in their own right. Out of hundreds that auditioned, only 64 auditionees actually made it into the competition.[...] Read More
