This workshop provides musicians, novices and fans alike with a rare opportunity to hear the London-based singer, composer, arranger and producer speak about how he adapts and brings his multi-instrumental, multi-visual format to his stage performances.
Described in turns as a “prodigy” and a “phenomenon”, the talented millennial musician embraces technology enthusiastically in his music, constantly pushing the boundaries of what can be done in a live show.
