Niall is from Wednesbury in the Black Country, just west of Birmingham – a place known for being the longest continually industrialised area on the planet, where making things has been a way of life for centuries.   Historically ‘the workshop of the world’, it was here that he first developed an interest in designing, making, and music, influenced by the area’s own mythology as a place of production and the DIY attitude around him.
