Originally from Ireland, I now currently live in Liverpool after completing my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees in performance. I am not a believer that you can only like one genre of music, if a song speaks to me on another level or I just vibe with it; I'm listening to it.
I'm still trying to find my way around life so patience is my virtue!
