"I started writing lyrics in school with my pal Nasha, and before you knew it we were getting booked to perform at events in the West Midlands.

"Fast forward 10 years down the line and I focus on making music that resonates with people who have gone through similar experiences to me.

"I always talk about a struggle, and then by the end of the track I want the listener to feel inspired to be able to make a change and take some action to benefit themselves."

Originating as funny lines in class to make his school friends laugh, Clezza's music developed into full tracks, often taking inspiration from challenges and difficulties he has faced through life.

Anybody Else has been released on Spotify and focuses on the struggles we face in life and society and how these can be overcome.
