His sound is broadly categorized as a fresh mix of live electronica and guitar-based rock, and has been steadily winning audiences over across the country. His debut release, Dualism EP (2011), and series of bootleg remixes that followed, received widespread critical acclaim and cemented his sound as one that is instantly recognizable and uniquely his.
