‘Our Love’ by Caribou
I remember hearing this album for the first time, I was on a balcony in Croatia and the sun was coming up.
‘Blonde’ by Frank Ocean
It was super refreshing, so many layers of vocals and instrumentation. An intriguing record, that kinda just got me and made me feel excited to be an artist.

Thank You For The Music By ABBA
It reminds me of nights out with my sister. They have too many bops to just pick one normal album!
Head of A&R
'Abbey Road' by The Beatles
This was one of the first albums that I heard and It was the album that inspired me to become a musician. It is now my "go to" album, when I need inspiration.
Imagination and the Misfit Kid by Labrinth
started listening to him again since I watched Euphoria. Love his range of music, the fact you can dance to it.... and cry to it! (Obviously not at the same time). Haha!
‘Beyonce’ By Beyonce
I don’t think there is a single song I wouldn’t listen to on that album. She’s such an amazing artist and pretty much makes me feel like I can conquer the world.
“Spice” by The Spice Girls
It's the perfect blend of witty lyricism, high energy dance tracks and somewhat motivational speech given the girl power ethos it presented.
'Racine Carrée' by Stromae
I used to listen to this album to help learn French at school, and ever since then it's stuck with me as a masterclass in pop.
Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino By Arctic Monkeys
I loved the lounge sound and their movement from British rock to this new age era. Alex Turner is a personal hero of mine!
Stranger in the Alps by Phoebe Bridgers
I love the blend of sadness and comforting sound of the production, especially in the song 'Scott Street'. One of the few albums with no track that I want to skip.
1999 By Joey Bada$$
This mixtape really put Joey on the map and for all the golden era of Boom-Bap, it's still my go to. Through dusty Doom & Dilla samples, soulful jazz cuts and gritty production, it remains on regular rotation week in & week out.
Only By The NIght By Kings Of Leon
This album was my childhood, there isnt a single song on there that isn’t an absolute belter. I still listen to it at least once a month and will never get bored of it.

Horizons by Surfaces
This album always brings me right back down to earth, it’s the perfect company for a blissed drive down to the beach that continuously puts me in the best mood.
“21” by Adele
Although I have several favourite albums, “21” is one that immediately springs to mind when asked. It’s an album I enjoy from start to finish without skipping, to the point where I can probably even recite the track order.
Crush by Bon Jovi
Bon Jovi have been my favourite band for as long as I can remember, my entire family are fans. I listened to this album on repeat while driving to see them for the first time as a kid, the nostalgia effect alone keeps me coming back time and time again.
Hot Fuss By The Killers
The first album I was bought, it was the soundtrack to my school days and my love for it hasn't changed over the years. Flawless from start to finish, and seeing them Headline Glastonbury was uncomparable.
Prisoner By Ryan Adams
This is hard to admit as John Mayer is my absolute idol, but this is the best heartbreak grunge-filled body of work I've ever listened to. Cannot recommend it enough!
Bones by Young Guns
Probably wouldn't be making myself and working in the industry myself now if it wasn't for this album. It reminds me of times when I used to follow the band around on tour with my mates. We had no money to do so but we always found a way to get to a Young Guns concert. I saw them from the very start playing to 5 people in a pub to then watching them play main stage Reading Festival
Silent Alarm by Bloc Party
The raw emotion and angst in Kele Okereke's vocals paired with themes of politics and boredom made for the perfect soundtrack to my teens. My love for the album was renewed in 2018 when I saw them play it in full at Alexandra Palace. The sense of unity in the crowd was unlike anything else I've experienced at a gig. It felt like a huge celebration, a thank you to Bloc Party for giving us this unforgettable indie gem.
Grace by Jeff Buckley
Grace taught me to love myself. It helped me evolve not only as a musician but also as a person. It's the album I go to when I need a cry, but it's also the album I go to when I need a boost. It's completely perfect in my eyes.
'Ctrl' By SZA
Since first discovering 'Ctrl', it has since been my go-to album and I never get tired of listening to it. Her conscious songwriting and storytelling paired with her soulful vocals makes it the perfect sing-along R&B album.
Off The Wall by Micheal Jackson
This album for me is one of those albums that you don't need (or want!) to skip any tracks - it's good old classic disco music at it's finest, full of groovy, feel-good flavour!
Affirmation by Savage Garden
Savage Garden were an Australian Duo and Affirmation was the first album I went out and bought with my own pocket money. I still listen to it to this day. The songs from this album have stayed with me for many years.
Heavy is The Head by Stormzy
This is an album that I will never get tired of, every time I listen to it I hear something new. Stormzy is a true virtuoso who constantly refreshes my love for music.
'To Pimp a Butterfly' by Kendrick Lamar
Hip-hop doesn't get any better than this album for me. The intricate wordplay on top of impeccably produced beats, emotional stories, and the overarching theme hooked me right from the first play.
'Stress' by Seppa
With half time, you get the best of both worlds of a cross over of dnb which is half the speed, with hip-hop elements and samples, which is what I love about Seppa's production and mastering. Gritty, raw and serious swagness, you can't help but have a cheeky grin on your face and toe tap to his infectious beats. I love working out to this album, it really gets you pumped for the day!
'Midnight Organ Fight' by Frightened Rabbit
This is one of the best Scottish albums of the 00’s and one of the most influential albums in my life. It means a lot to me and so many other people, it really is a lifeline for a lot of people. The words are beautiful and honest, it’s an album to get lost in and something I hold really close to my heart.
‘Whatever People Say I Am That Is What I Am Not’ by Arctic Monkeys
Every song is perfectly written, it might as well be single after single. Showing a generation that no matter where you are from, how old you are, what your influences are, your music can be music for the masses.
Body Music by Aluna George
Tracks off this album used to play on a loop at my first job after high school, and growing up in the US it seemed like an exotic deep dive into some english electronic singer-songwriter fusion I had never heard before. It was the first album I remember being so excited to share with people to make sure they heard it to, and is still one of my go to favourites to play on repeat!
Reputation by Taylor Swift
Reputation is full of feel good power anthems and fun pop synth bangers. It’s very personal to me because I was able to relate to many of the songs and I just adore Taylor’s story telling.
Man Alive by Everything Everything
Ever since I heard it I've been hooked on the left field songwriting techniques coupled with the unique vocal style! The way they use harmonic structure and off the wall song structures yet still manage to create hooky pop songs blows my mind! Listening to this album not only inspires me musically but takes me back to dancing around indie bars with a far too expensive Red Stripe in my hand.
Revolver by The Beatles
It shows them beginning to shift and experiment more with production and songwriting.
'Slipknot' By Slipknot
The band were like my family as a kid; I got bullied loads in school, they helped me get tough fast.
Social Media Manager & Podcast Producer
'What You Don't See' by The Story So Far
I discover this band back in my college days, and this album has stuck with me since. To me there is no album that makes me feel better than this does.
