I would say I have been inspired (and still am) by many varying artists from Elvis’ rich velvety tones, Dusty’s soulful melodies, most of the Motown Artists ( as Motown was my dad’s favourite era), Queen’s theatrical and heartfelt masterpieces, Etta James’ unique vocal style, even as modern as “The King’s of Leon’s” unique melodic formula, to London Grammar’s haunting tones, not to forget the Rock scene of Jon Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, The Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, to nineties classics such as Massive Attack, The Prodigy to M People, Shakespeare Sister, it’s so varied and exciting have only scratched the surface with these iconic few.
