Take 5 with Liam Burrows

Who is your musical inspiration? 

My biggest inspirations would have to be Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble and John Mayer. 

What is your proudest musical achievement?

When I was selected as a finalist for the Thelonious Monk Jazz Competition in LA 2015. I was flown to LA and had the opportunity to perform for Herbie Hancock. 

When did you know you wanted to be a musician?

I grew up in a musical family. I actually can’t remember a particular moment but there are videos of me playing the drums and piano at four years of age. I guess I always knew I was going to do music.

If you weren’t a musician what would you be doing?

Well I currently also photograph weddings, so I suppose I would be doing that. I can’t imagine myself not doing a creative venture of some sort.

Do you have a guilty pleasure? 

I love buying photography gear. I’m absolutely obsessed.
