How did you get the name Liberation Drummer?
I was looking for a new Instagram handle and I strongly believe in the animal liberation message and I'm a drummer by trade, then voila. My friend came up with it though!
What's the inspiration behind your new album "Animal Liberation"?
The animals. I sing about how we use animals in modern society form food to fashion to cosmetics. It's shocking.
Who in the music industry - past and present - are your greatest influences?
Bon Iver and HONNE are my boys. Still can't get over how good they are.
Was there a pivotal moment in your life when you first realized you wanted to pursue music professionally?
Urm i guess moving to London for University and being surrounded in the scene made me want to pursue this career.
What's the coolest place you've ever performed?
Ooo. A 5 star hotel in Switzerland. We supported the winner of The Voice (Swiss Édition). I got a private room which had been stayed in by the lead singer of Toto!
If you could work with any artist dead or alive, who would it be?
Bon Iver (Justin Vernon)
Why is MusicDigi a great platform for musicians?
It's efficient and helped me get my album online super fast which I needed!!
What can fans expect next?
Songs about animal rights. I'm getting sick of love songs.
