His music has been christened as “theatrical piano pop” – a unique subgenre of pop music that is melodramatic, quirky and emotional. It is “pop that punches you in the heart” – powerhouse vocals, catchy hooks and sincere lyrics that hit home.

“I consider myself a songwriter foremost. All my songs start with me at a piano and a story to tell.”

Track Name: Oh So Serious
I’m not just gonna hang with you no more
I’m not just gonna skate to your front door (oh no!)
I’m not just gonna be your friend like everytime before
I’ve had enough, I’m getting bored
I’ve had enough, I’m getting bored

[ Chorus 1 ]
For too long, I’ve been the one on the side
You know, the one that misses out on the surprise
But now I’m gonna get a little mischievous
Cos I’m making things oh so serious
Uh oh oh, oh so serious

I’ve got, gotta make sure that this will last
Coz I’ve not been good being brokenhearted in the past (oh no!)
I’ve stopped going after the ones I want
I must admit, I’m getting bored
I must admit, I’m getting bored

[ Chorus 2 ]
For too long, I’ve been the one all alone
You know, the one that misses out on winning gold
But now I’m gonna get a little mischievous
Cos I’m making things oh so serious
Uh oh oh, oh so serious uh oh oh
Oh so serious, uh oh oh, oh so serious

I don’t wanna wait on the sidelines
To be so close, but lose by miles
I don’t wanna be so vulnerable
To break so I hope
I’ll find love in you

[ Repeat Chorus 1 + 2 ]
Track Name: Sugar Rush
So close, I might
Overload, I might
Get involved in your light (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)

Say hello, then I’ll
Get to know your smile
So much so, I could die (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)

[ Chorus ]
Tremble ‘cause honey you’re my weakness
Blindfold me so I don’t get dizzy yes
Head to toe, I wanna be wrapped in you
Forever our honeymoon
I’ve tried to cure this addiction
Realise that you’re my only medicine
To stay alive, I need you and me to be us
‘Cause honey you’re my sugar rush

Hold the phone, I’ve got
To break through the dial tone
Oh to you, so I can start us (Ah-ah, ah-ah, ah-ah)

Take it slow, start off
With just a kiss, I don’t want
I don’t want to miss any part (Of, of us)

[ Chorus ]

(Whoa, whoa) My sugar rush, rush
(Whoa, whoa) My sugar rush, rush
(Whoa, whoa) And I can't get enough
'Cause honey you're my sugar rush

[ Repeat Chorus ]
[ Repeat Bridge ]
Track Name: Geez (Get Over Me)
Here you are again
At another party I attend
These people are not your friends
They are mine, they are mine

You’ve forced your way in
Like a knife through my skin
We broke up a year ago
I think it’s time, it’s time
To get the hell out of my life

[ Chorus ]
Leave! Get your own friends
It’s embarrassing you showing up again and again
Please! It’s so wrong
Stop hitting on all of my besties
When we said goodbye
It was meant to be the last time
Geez! I mean, seriously
Get over me

God you are a pest
It’s awkward at its best
These people are really stressed
It’s uncomfortable, you’re uncomfortable

You say there’s nothing weird
We’re fine together, it’s been like a year
Don’t know how to make it more clear
You’re a cannibal and you’re eating all
Of the life I built for myself
Since we broke it off

[ Repeat Chorus ]

And hey, I love what we had
The moments we shared together
But hey, I’ve had enough
Had to deal with so much stuff
When you broke my heart

[ Repeat Chorus ] x3
Track Name: Cloud
Sometimes I get nervous
I might not make it through the night
And in this moment of darkness
I think of you, full of light

There is so much that could block me
From the dreams I long to fulfil
When I’m up high and I come crashing
I think of you there with me still

[ Chorus ]
You hold me up, up, up
Up, up, up
You know that you’re the only one
Who’ll never bring me down
Because you are, because you are my cloud

I wish you could be next to me
Forever in my home
I’d be safe in two’s company
But sometimes you gotta face the world alone

When I’ve got no one to turn to
And all my dreams fall to the ocean floor
When even happiness hurts too
I think of you and how much of me you are

[ Chorus ]
You hold me up, up, up
Up, up, up
You know that you’re the only one
Who’ll never bring me down
Because you are, because you are my cloud
You hold me up, up, up
Because you are, because you are my cloud

When I’m looking back on all I’ve done
In years down the track
When I’m so proud of who I’ve become
I’ll think of you and how you made sure of that

[ Chorus ]
You hold me up, up, up
Up, up, up
You know that you’re the only one
Who’ll never bring me down
Because you are, because you are my cloud
You hold me up, up, up
Because you are, because you are my cloud
You hold me up, up, up
Because you are, because you are my cloud
Because you are, because you are my cloud
You are my cloud
Track Name: Castle in the Air
You are the star of something amazing, yeah
Be what you are, don’t hide the crazy down there

You’re not invisible no more
So don’t shy away from a miracle

[ Chorus ]
I made a promise to make this everything that I can
You are the reason I believe in everything that I am
So when you open your heart and see there’s something in there
We might be crazy but we’re building a castle in the air
A castle in the air

They’ll search for truth
We’ll search for treasure they won’t find
You’re living proof that we can find it in our skies

This is a mystery no more
We know exactly where to go

[ Repeat Chorus ]

Uh oh, uh oh, a castle in the air (x2)

Let them watch and learn
We are the strangers that burst into the atmosphere
We become famous and they can only stop and stare
As we go flying
Higher than we’ve ever been, ever been, ever been yeah

To our castle in the air

[ Repeat Chorus ]

Uh oh, uh oh, a castle in the air (x2)
