Over the years sly has mutated many times but it started as a solo project. After a few solo outings, I was booked to play a festival near Winchester called Woolfire. I think this was the first time I’d paired the tape noise/rhythms with live acoustic drums and it felt good, so that’s been the basis for sly ever since. In terms of actively performing, going on tour with my good friends Shield Your Eyes in Europe for the first time was the main inspiration for wanting to make sly a serious live act. Getting to meet people and visit places you may never otherwise have the opportunity to, whilst engaging in live music is still a huge inspiration for me and one of the most exciting endeavours we can experience.
