British music can justifiably claim to conquer the world but that incredible success is built upon one thing, talent. In an age of television static and bewildering musical consumer choice, it is now more important than ever that we give the right, focused support and opportunity to the next generation of great British talent. Salute is set to make that happen.

I have been playing the piano by ear since the age of 6. I have always created tunes on the piano but never thought about using them in terms of songwriting.

My love for music was nurtured by my dad. He gave me an eclectic and open-minded attitude about music that I am so thankful for today.

I started off beatboxing and wanted to persue that, however it became more of a party trick and I wanted to express myself through rapping.
