What genre/genres do you consider your music to be?

I would say country/folk would be my genre but at the minute it can be anything. I'm living in Belfast and you get asked for all different styles.

How long have you been performing?

I've been performing for about 14 years now. I done my first gig when I was 15 so a pretty long time.

Where do you perform?

I perform a lot in Belfast now, between Belfast and Derry. I play a lot of city gigs. I've performed at the Rusty Saddle in Belfast, the Merchant Hotel and I've recently done a gig in the City Hall, which very few people get the chance to do. I performed for about 600 volunteers and that was a pretty big gig. I also play the odd gig back home, down in Co. Tyrone and Fermanagh. It just depends, I'll go anywhere.

What is your favourite song to play and why?

I don't really have a favourite song. Whatever is high up in the charts is always what I get asked to play. At the minute I'm doing a lot of Lewis Capaldi.

What has been your biggest gig to date?

I done Britain's Got Talent this year so realistically that is my biggest gig to date, to sing in front of Simon Cowell. That was in the London Palladium. I was asked back and I done Manchester as well, at the Lowry Theatre.

Who are your major influences?

I'm influenced a lot by American Country music, like Merle Haggard and George Jones. There's so many now. I'm really enjoying The Beatles at the minute. I would definitely say a huge influence on my music career would be Merle Haggard.

Do you write your own songs? What inspires your songwriting?

The past while I've been writing my own stuff, I'm back in the studio now in the next week or two to start recording so hopefully I'm going to get my own track out there that I've written myself and get something recorded.

What would be your dream gig?

I think everyone's dream gig here in the UK is Glastonbury but just to get on and support any big name is a big thing. I would love to support someone like Picture This or Kodaline.

Best moment as a musician so far?

When people put stuff up online of me and it gets such big views, that's really special for me. People post videos of mine and they get hundreds of thousands of views and that really helps me along, giving me more and more of a drive. It's always good when you get support from local people.

What is the most unusual venue you have played?

I've sang out in barns, I've sang in a garage. There's loads and loads of different venues I have done. Outside in a garage is probably one of the most random ones I have done.

What is your ‘go-to’ encore song?

My encore song is 'Discoland' by Gerry Cinnamon.

What's the best thing about performing?

Meeting new people. I've had people stand on the street and cry listening to me whenever I busk in Belfast. Mostly whenever you get that special connection with somebody. When you touch someone with a song, that's always what you want to do, to make somebody's day by singing a certain song for them. So much so that they get emotional and really enjoy it.

Do you always perform solo or do you also play with a band?

I'm in a two-piece band with a guy from Argentina. His name is Jonathan Cariaga, he is my guitar player and we are called The Two Jonatones. He's worked with some really big names worldwide. Our two-piece is going so so well.

How would you describe your sound?

My sound at the minute is pretty alternative. As The Two Jonatones, we kind of put our own style on what we play so we often take songs and turn them around and kind of put our own stamp on songs.

Any last words?

It's always good to hear from people from Fermanagh and get support from Fermanagh people. Growing up and living in Enniskillen, I've always had great support. Playing in and around Fermanagh was always great. Up here in Belfast it is so different, we are working on a tour now, we are heading over to England for a few weeks after the summer and we are planning to do six major cities in England. Also busking, busking has become a big part of my life now. I play to people everyday of the week here, just on the street and they love it. It's really nice to just do what I love.
