RTP: What’s been the most happy moment of your career so far?
OH: There’s a mix of things here really. There are a lots of different ways that I think about happiness in that sense. I think that of course a biggest achievement can be happy in terms of feeling like people are taking notice of you. An example of that would be very recent! Jamie Cullum played The Crown on BBC Radio 2 last week, which made me go a bit wild. But then there are other small things, like finishing a song I’ve been stuck on for months that can be a real sense of happiness. I realise my answer isn’t particularly clear but I suppose in music, whilst individual moments are a marker to what you’re doing, it’s really about the bigger picture – I’m super excited about the bigger picture at the moment. Maybe that means my happiest moment is now.
RTP: Do you do all the writing for your music?
OH: Yeah I write everything, record everything, produce everything, and mix everything in my bedroom, on my own. That means my processes can get a bit blurred and messy at times, but originality and creativity comes from mess with me I guess.
RTP: What instruments do you play?
OH: I play the guitar, and the piano. I’m always messing about with synths and can play most things to a basic ability. I guess because I’m producing it all I kind of have to! That being said, just because I played a software flute on something I couldn’t claim to be able to play the flute… That’s piano to a producer.
RTP: Are these songs inspired by real events? If so, care to go into detail?
OH: Well motocross used to be my life before I came to London. I raced every weekend and was quite good. I unfortunately had a pretty horrific injury which kind of ended that all… But at the moment I’m struggling to find time for music, let alone other hobbies. I work 9-6 monday-friday so it can be difficult to have the energy to do anything else.
