I’m Jack, I’m 24 years old and I moved to London three years ago to live with my girlfriend at the time because I was bored to be in my hometown, Lucca, a small town in Tuscany. I always loved making music but in Italy it’s not easy if you try to make something like what I do – quite different from mainstream stuff – so I moved here and found a different environment. People are more open-minded so I felt quite welcome in terms of what I was doing.I worked in some pubs to save some money on the side and little by little I developed my solo stuff which is M!R!M. I self-released some singles and then through a Greek label called Fabrika Records I released my first LP, Heaven, on vinyl and I started touring around Europe. And now I’m playing music – I’m only doing this at the moment. It’s not easy but I saved some money with gigs and vinyls and stuff so now I can still live in this shit house [laughs]… but it’s fine, I don’t really mind. I’m living with cool people in a good area.
