Personal Quotes (3)

"Basically, the album is an autobiographical journey, a diary if you like, of my last three years." Talking about his album These Streets.
When I first moved to London again from Paisley, and started doing some gigs, I met this girl at one of the gigs. Her name was Jenny, and the more we got talking, she asked me what age I was, and she previously said she was 23 so I said 23. But I wasn't. I was only 18. And things were going OK and then I told her one day. I said 'Look, I have to be honest, I'm only 18'. She slapped me and just told me to just go away. And I never knew her number. I've not spoken to her since. So this is about that girl. - In reference to his song, Jenny Don't Be Hasty
"He was a big music lover, my Nonno, he loved boogie woogie piano, he adored opera, and it was him that really encouraged me to sing. He always wanted somebody in the family to make music their living. He's not around to see it, unfortunately, but I'm doing just what he wanted, and I'm doing it in his honor." - talking about his grandfather.
