He started busking when he lived in the village of Porth, near Newquay, Cornwall. After several years of playing other musicians' songs, he eventually started to compose his own. He attributes his distinctive voice to a severe bout of whooping cough that nearly killed him when he was a baby

In the writing process for this album he worked with Ryan Tedder, Martin Terefe, Martin Brammar and Steve Robson.
