Name: Westley Holdsworth.

Age: Two years.

Hometown: Auckland, NZ / Ipswich UK. 

Sounds Like: I'm not trying to sound like anything in particular, more trying to see if I can find my own sound and my own way of making music. It's an amalgamation of everything I've experienced and learnt about myself and the world and it's definitely a work in progress.

Musical Guilty Pleasure: There is no guilt in pleasure.

Formative Musical Experience: My mum is a big Motown fan and I feel like that music was always played in my house when I was young and no doubt had some sort of effect on me wanting to pursue music. Although the first time I picked up an instrument was to play in a metal band with some friends in Ipswich. I had no idea what I was doing. That was a long time ago.
